Are you interested in working with Educate Tutoring?

Our tutors are passionate, trained and qualified. Working with us, you’ll have the chance to work alongside a supportive, collaborative team, and learn from experienced teachers and educators.

We’re looking for people who are enthusiastic about sharing their knowledge and have a genuine excitement and care for what they do. 

A Note From The Principal

At Educate Tutoring, our team works to help our students achieve tangible results in their learning. As Tutors nurture the capacity to analyse, articulate, reflect and reason, students are encouraged to actively engage in the process of learning and enquiry.
 
Through paired and individual tuition, students experience a positive educational environment and develop a sense of confidence in their ability to learn.
 
I invite you to make contact should you wish to know more about how Educate Tutoring can work to support any learning requirements you or your child may have. I would be more than happy to give you a call, so we can chat in person.

Naomi

I simply fell into my teaching career, but I’ll never forget the moment I realised the depth of my responsibility as a classroom teacher. I was keenly aware that each one of my students had their own individual personality and character, learning style, strengths and needs.  Establishing safe and nurturing relationships with each student is a natural and integral part of my practice. My training and experience have helped me develop a strong framework around which I am able to prepare and deliver effective, evidence-based instruction for our students at Educate.  I am continually looking for ways to refine the delivery of content, ensuring that it is efficient, effective and engaging – maximising the use of the small amount of time we have with our families each week.

Alex

Hi, I’m Alex! I’m the friendly Administration behind the desk. I am currently completing my Bachelor of Psychology and Bachelor of Business with the University of Tasmania and completing my Certificate 3 in Business through a traineeship with Educate Tutoring. I have been with Educate Tutoring for four years. I began in Grade 9, after completing an internship and it wasn’t long before I became an employee. I am passionate about the arts and you’ll often find me humming to soft jazz or bopping my head to funk music in the office. I fell in love with reading at an early age and from then on learning was enjoyable and something I strived for. I have been able to channel this passion through the hands-on and practical approach to learning of a traineeship. I love Educate Tutoring for the learning culture that we have cultivated both with our students and as an employee team! I hope to see you here, as I’d love to hear about your favourite book and something special you’ve learned!

Alisha

I have just finished Year 12 and will be starting my first year of university, where I will study a Bachelor of Education. I joined Educate Tutoring last year and have loved working here since as an administration assistant. My passions are art and the outdoors. I love spending time in nature with my family, whether this is swimming in the ocean or trekking through the bush, I can always find peace of mind when I am outside. I also enjoy art and in college I found I especially loved ceramics. I am fascinated by fantasy and fairy-tales which I love to incorporate into my art work. I draw inspiration for this from the outdoors where I find most fairy-tales and mythical creatures are inspired from. I enjoy sports and keeping active and have found I especially love water polo. I have always loved swimming from a young age and have found water polo has taught me the importance of working together as a team player and how the discipline of training is relevant to any skill I may like to try.

My special characteristic is:

I can easily eat a whole block of chocolate in one sitting, sometimes even the family sized one.

Heather

I’m a lover of learning with a passion for sharing my knowledge and helping to spark that love for learning in the hearts of others around me too. Growing up, I was always that child who would go off researching random concepts – from how airplanes fly to the inner workings of the human brain and everything in between. I have a degree in Design, so in my spare time you can find me working on my next creative project or out exploring this beautiful state (especially when there’s water involved). My mind never stops creating, I’m always thinking outside the box and looking for new ways to keep students engaged or help them to understand concepts. I love challenging students to reach their potential by building positive relationships and creating an environment where it’s safe to make mistakes. I hope to spark the passion and love I have for learning in the lives of all my students.

Ellie

I’m passionate about sharing my love of learning with anyone and everyone. Currently a university student myself, I’m also completing a Business traineeship through Educate. As a Sociology major, I am fascinated with people, and the endless ways we can study and view the world from different perspectives. I believe that understanding and respecting diverse views is the way forward. Growing up in a household that encouraged and supported learning at all levels, I’ve spent my whole life wanting to know more, and now I feel so fortunate to be able to help inspire the same passion and eagerness in others. My curiosity and love of challenges makes my lessons fun, engaging and informative. Establishing a trusting relationship with my student is the key to a safe and supportive learning environment where it’s okay to make mistakes and try again. Educate Tutoring and my schooling have given me so much support and opportunities for learning, and I hope to provide the same for all of my students.

My special characteristic is:

I’m really good at buying more books before I finish reading the ones I already have! I’m also fabulous at colour-coordinating my bookshelves…

Laree

I love the water and ocean, and any activity that includes being in, on or around it! My passion for teaching began at a young age when I was inspired by an enthusiastic, caring, and often unorthodox, but highly successful high school teacher.  «I can’t do this», were words never allowed. There were always alternatives to solve any problem, make sense of any Maths formula, and always masses of encouragement to find different ways of learning.  This «think-outside-the-box» approach has stayed with me my entire career and I love finding new and different ways for students to learn. I graduated from university in 1991 and taught for several years across a diverse range of ages and disciplines but settled on working in developing students’ literacy and numeracy skills. I love seeing a student experience the joy of success. I feel everyone deserves to achieve to the best of their ability, and that I, as their tutor, have a responsibility to ensure they do so. It is so rewarding to be able to work at Educate Tutoring with a dynamic and committed team of educators who love nothing more than to see the students – child/young adult/adult –  gain a love for learning and therefore, flourish and shine!

Libeth

I come from a family of educators; my father and many other relatives have been working as classroom teachers, school principals and other positions of the like for generations. Thanks to that big influence from my family, I decided to combine my passion for teaching and languages, and I did my undergraduate diploma in Education and Languages in my home country.

However, I could see that I really enjoyed managing people during a short but great experience working with a political party. When I moved to the beautiful state of Tasmania, I decided to start a career in human resources, so I enrolled in an advanced business diploma. Afterwards, thanks to the amazing support of Naomi, I could do my professional jump into this field with Educate Tutoring.

Last but not least, I am such a big fan of Harry Potter, The Lord of the Rings and Mario Kart, so if one day you want to discuss how to create a HR strategy based on the theories of Gryffindor, Rowena Ravenclaw, Helga Hufflepuff or perhaps Salazar Slytherin, just write me!

My special characteristic is:

I’m incredible bush walker

Ivan

I am an unconventional geologist who loves teaching and being part of a team. I did my undergraduate studies in Latin America and my post-graduate in Spain and Australia.   My parents were my first tutors, they encouraged me and not only built my academic confidence, but also taught me that with discipline, order and patience, a student can achieve many goals. I aim to pass these lessons on to students in my tutorials. I love spending time with my family, watching sport competitions – even though I am a bad player, gathering with relatives and friends to watch a footy, soccer or baseball game is lots of fun for me. Working at Educate Tutoring has been such a rewarding experience; Naomi is an empowered woman, leader and educator who not only gives amazing tips and tricks to motivate students to excel iMathsEnglish and Science, but she is willing to listen and enlist different and joyful methods of teaching.

My special characteristic is:

Play Mario kart on Nintendo switch.

Rosemary

My interests are diverse. I love the outdoors and particularly exploring by walking. I am involved in Scouts as a Joey Scout leader. This involves me working with 5 to 8 year olds and working with them to learn and discover all sorts of new things. I love music and I sing in the Cantiamo Ladies Choir. We have great fun making beautiful music! My Christian faith is important to me and I am an elder in the Uniting Church. I love engaging with people and my Scouting and Church and teaching roles enable me to do this. I also like to combine engagement with people with my love of cooking. I am at my happiest when I am cooking up a storm in the kitchen to feed others. I teach because I enjoy working with young people to help them learn and grow. It gives me great pleasure to see new skills and understandings develop. I particularly enjoy the one to one engagement that is possible in my work with Educate Tutoring.

Yina

Hello, I am Yina. I am bilingual in English and Mandarin, which has brought me so much fun in life. I have a passion for the English language and literature because it allows me to explore so many new things from English culture!  

After I obtained my Master’s degree in Applied Linguistics in Teaching English as a Second Language from Hofstra University in New York, 2016, I have been tutoring English to different levels and age groups. I enjoy teaching so much because I love seeing big smiles from my students when they can learn not just the knowledge but also human values. I believe the best reward a teacher can obtain is the appreciation from students and seeing their progress.

I enjoy outdoor activities and traveling. I am usually out hiking or climbing on my days off and it brings me so much energy!

I appreciate Educate Tutoring so much because everyone here is humble and friendly. When I see the kids laughing and playing with their tutors around here, I realize that I have found an education home!

My special characteristic is:

Fast learner and enthusiastic to all the outdoor activities. Strong adaptability. Cook dumplings. Well traveled.

Campbell

I am a keen learner myself and have a passion for spreading my knowledge to others. I am currently a student myself, completing my undergraduate in education. I’m excited to take that knowledge and teach others. Growing up I have always had a fixation with music and musical instruments, every year I would find myself picking up a new instrument and attempting to learn how to play it. That obsession with music helped me realise that I want to teach others how fun and enjoyable learning new things can be. It is important to me that lessons are fun. In my spare time, I enjoy playing music with my mates. The most enjoyable parts of my week are whenever my mates rock up at my house unannounced just to have a jam or go into the backyard and play some cricket to relax and have a good time. As a student I always benefited more from a fun and enjoyable lesson, an essential element which I plan to incorporate in my tutoring lessons. Whether it was playing games, singing songs, or even just learning something new. I am very excited to see where my teaching career and my time with Educate Tutoring goes.

Can touch my elbow with my tongue

Neve

As someone who adores learning and understanding what makes things tick, I love being able to encourage that same enjoyment in others. As a current student at the University of Tasmania, I’m majoring in History, since connecting the past and present (and discovering the ways in which the former has influenced the latter) has always fascinated me. I love to make things, and you’ll often find copious little cartoons scribbled in my margins. When it comes to teaching, I prioritise the enjoyment of learning through creating a fun and energising atmosphere that is tailored to a students’ needs. Like sneaking vegetables into meals, I love to consolidate a student’s understanding of concepts through games and hands-on activities, and in doing so create tangible frames of reference for students. In my lessons, I aim to create a positive and nurturing environment in which students are able to develop their own abilities and confidence. I also have quite the collection of funky earrings, which are always a hoot – ask me about my Rubix cube ones!

My special characteristic is:

I have six different pairs of dinosaur earrings!
