Hi, I am Amanda. I have been teaching primary students since 1992 when I was offered a permanent teaching position due to being selected as a targeted graduate student.

I have taught in the Sutherland Shire, St George and Bankstown districts for over 20 years. I have also had more than 8 years’ experience in private tutoring.

I have developed and implemented programs that cater for all ability levels, including programs for students with learning difficulties as well as programs for students in gifted and talented classes. I have experience and knowledge of marking written texts for students preparing for the selective test.

I am passionate about learning and making a difference to students’ educational journeys. I apply Global Education Academy principles of teaching for understanding and love it when I see it’s working.
