I am a Sydney Girls' High School Graduate with an undergraduate degree, a masters degree and a professional qualification.

I have been tutoring for nearly 30 years. Maths is my passion and the joy in seeing my students excel is so rewarding.

I worked as an Actuary for the top 5 insurance companies. After 20 years in the industry, I decided to pursue my passion and undertook my Master of Teaching in Mathematics to become a high school mathematics teacher.

I am now a qualified high school teacher and work casually in high schools around Sydney.

I am dedicated to my student's progress and all my students have a high success rate. I ascertain each student’s learning needs and tailor the tutoring to the areas needing focus. I have often found that students need to revisit the core mathematical concepts and once they grasp this, they really start to improve.

I am available for tutoring sessions at my place in Mortdale or alternatively do online tutoring using a programme where we can see each other and we can write onscreen to each other in real time. This looks to be the way of tutoring in the future, so if it is more convenient for you I highly recommend that you try online tutoring.

Hope to hear from you soon.
