About Your Tutor
Bachelor of Education | Flinders University
Hi, I’m Mel and I’m passionate about one on one teaching and being a part of many children’s learning journey. I have been a teacher for 23 years and a tutor for the past 3 years. I have taught students in a range of subject areas from Reception to Year 11, including English, Maths, PE, Health and Italian. I have been living in the Adelaide Hills for the past 6 years and I lived and worked as a teacher in the Limestone Coast region of SA for 14 years. I am a member of Speld SA and I have the appropriate tutors insurance. I have recently attended a SPELD course in working with students with learning difficulties and I can cater for students with dyslexia and discalculia. I also work with students who need to be challenged ‘beyond their years’.
I am married and have 3 teenage children and I am an Independent Schools AFL football umpire during Winter and I play for a local suburban cricket club during the Summer. I am also an active runner and I have completed 3 full marathons in the past 3 years.
Please call me to discuss how I can help your child on their learning journey.
" Mel has enhanced the mathematical skills of my daughter in last 8 months. She is now more confident and has started enjoying maths. He is very pleasant and patient with children. We are very happy with his professionalism. "
" With Mel’s tuition and support, we have noticed a positive shift in our daughter’s motivation, and attitude towards learning. More importantly, this has translated into a greater enjoyment of her overall school day. "
" Mel has made a huge difference to my Daughter’s progress at school. Recurrent ear infections had left her a long way behind in year 1 with difficulty in reading and maths. In 6 months she caught up to her year 1 peers and progressed with her reading to the point where she can read for her own enjoyment. Mel tailors the tutoring to her interests and changes the tasks and approach to keep her engaged for a full 90 minutes. I highly recommend Mel, as a result of his work with my daughter, she’s now engaged with, and enjoying school instead of struggling. "
