Woolgoolga - In Centre/Online

– Primary and Early Secondary—Maths, English and Science

Wendy is a passionate teacher, excelling in this field for more than 31 years. Tutoring is what she finds to be the most rewarding type of teaching, working for direct goals and seeing these goals being achieved. Wendy notes that tutoring is more effective when children are acknowledged, cared for and shown respect. Feeling safe, they can be challenged and inspired to learn.  In her tutoring, she supports their needs for attention and approval, and values the children as individuals. Wendy’s tutoring helps children acquire a strong foundation in the knowledge and skills needed for success at school and for life in general. Originally from Sydney, Wendy was based at one main school for 25 years. She knows well the need for staff support, cooperation and rapport. Now, at The Education Centre, in line with our policies and practices, she generously shares helpful ideas with other staff members.

WWC2494557E - NDIS:31330350

English, Maths, Art

Bachelor of Arts (Visual Arts), Diploma of Education, Certificate IV in Small Business Management

I help with programs tailored to suit individual needs in English, Maths and Art. 

I love to work one on one with people for whom English is a second language, to increase literacy, confidence and understanding. 

I enjoy books and reading, and hope to instil this in my students. 

As a practising artist, I can also deliver practical art programs to small groups. Emphasis is on learning various techniques and enjoyment of the processes, (rather than mass manufacture of a product), so that students carry these learnings to their own artmaking and individual expression. 

I am happy to provide gentle, encouraging support to people of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.

After having immigrated to Australia I have taught English and Drama to year 7 to 12. The Drama courses I taught were from year 7 to year 12 for the pretertiary year 11 course as well as the  Theatre Performance Course in year 12 and a Technical Lighting and Set Design Course.   I was also the Coordinator of the Arts, Music, and Drama Faculties as well as being an Examiner and Moderator of the Arthur Barrington Region in Tasmania. I have also taught English to all levels including Standard and Advanced English to years 11 and 12. One of my students in my English Extension Course had her work published by the NSW Education Department.

To conclude my Teaching career spanned over 25 years and I still love to Tutor and help and guide students in their chosen fields.

Vivien R
Coffs Harbour - In Centre

– Art to Y12

Master of Product Design, Cert IV TAE Teaching, Cert IV Small Business.  Art & German, Teaching Design, Workshops, Mentoring, Designer

Vivien hails from Germany, where she did her Masters Degree in Product Design.  Moving to Australia in 2006, she completed her Certificate IV in Small Business as well as Certificate IV TAE in Teaching.  In 2010, Vivien started her own business in toy design and manufacturing i called Toys of Wood. “The love for wood started in my grandfather’s workshop,” she says, “watching him create beautiful furniture. And I loved the smell of wood shavings. He gave me some of his tools, which I still use today.” In 2012, she taught Furniture Design at Coffs Harbour TAFE. Since then, she has staged workshops in art and design for people of all ages.  “Drawing down an idea,” Viven says, “is the easiest way to understand what you are about to produce. Drawing, painting and collaging have always been a big part of my life. And I enjoy passing on my knowledge to others. I believe that everyone has a creative side. You just have to practice and nurture it.”
Now at The Education Centre, tutoring drawing the way she once learned it, Vivien is very excited to be working with both children and adults.
