Lavinia's Description


I am 48 years of age and currently studying part time a send Masters of Education and tutoring casually students aged between 7 - 35 years in both literacy and numeracy and caring for children in the local area.

I have had extensive experience spending time with children in my role as class teacher, guidance counsellor and nanny. The age of the children I have been involved with since 1989 are newborns - 18 years.

You will find me to be an honest, reliable, flexible, organised, fun, creative and committed to the well being of the children. These characteristics are tempered by a pleasant sense of humour and lots of laughs especially when inevitable hiccups occur along the way.

I am determined and more than willing to support the parents and their expectations, for example, the completion of homework. To this end I place boundaries in place which are age appropriate, fair and consistent. It is essential that parents return home to find a clam, relaxed and purposeful environment.

Both my experience and education have allowed me to refine and apply strategies that take into account the individual needs of the child as well as the important developmental stages of infants, early childhood, adolescence and early adulthood. I thoroughly enjoy the challenges children offer and make every effort to accommodate the child.

I would welcome the opportunity to meet with you in the first instance to discuss my resume with you.

Warmest regards,
