Term 1 and 2 has been a time of positive change for Mornington Peninsula Tutoring. As many of you know, I had my beautiful baby boy in February of this year. This has meant no actual tutoring for me, as I am on Maternity Leave enjoying being a first time Mum. However, MPT has still been running and I have been quite busy behind the scenes.
At the moment MPT has its highest number of students yet, and has welcomed three new tutors throughout Term 1 and 2.
Samara has completed a Bachelor of Secondary Education and Arts at Deakin University, with her majors being in Dance and Drama. As a new teacher, she is full of energy and enthusiasm, and is excited to see her students grow and learn in their tutoring sessions. We get great feedback from Samara’s students about her positive energy and engaging lessons.
Vicky has completed a Bachelor of Arts (Psychology), as well as a Graduate Diploma of Professional Psychology. She is still studying towards a higher qualification in this field, and is also working as an Integration Aide at a local high school. Vicky’s experience in the psychology and educational fields, as well as her excellent communication skills make her a wonderful tutor. She does especially well with students who are facing learning difficulties or social and behavioural disorders.
Jess has completed a Bachelor of Applied Science (Physical Education Secondary) at Victoria University, and is currently studying her Masters of Teaching (Primary and Secondary) at Monash University. Jess has a very bright and bubbly personality, and her patient and caring nature make her a great tutor for our primary students.
I’m sure the rest of the year will continue to be just as positive, with the tutors at MPT working hard to continually improve and extend their students each week.
Lauren is a teacher and tutor who works with primary school aged children. Lauren has a Degree in Education from Deakin University, and is currently studying a Diploma in Counseling with AIPC.
