Experienced and caring mother of 3 adult children & grandmother of 2 young girls wanting to help out parents of young children in my home or yours. I am a huge fan of walks in the pram, and enjoy library visits and telling stories. I am a good cook and make awesome baby food and enjoy watching children eat good food! I’m great with short notice, and am specialised in reading instruction. I have experience working with new mothers and new born babies. I am an education mentor and am happy to assist with primary school children’s homework. I have two dogs of my own so am more than happy to be in the home alongside your pets.
I have been involved in caring and educating young children since I was a teenager - so well over 35 years experience. Very comfortable with newborn babies - happy with all ages. I am a volunteer in the Sutherland Shire area assisting new mothers with their newborn babies. I also work as an Education mentor and am very happy to assist primary school children with all homework - I have much experience in teaching children to read.
I have a PhD in educational psychology focussing on teaching children how to read. I have been assisting with reading in the classroom for a number of years. I also have a MEd in linguistics and have tutored all ages from kindergarten through to university students. I am currently working casually as an educational mentor with primary aged children. My approach is to assist the child in developing a firm basis of understanding and allowing the child to approach the problem with guidance and reinforcement. I am patient and appreciate different learning styles and a variety of abilities.
