What to expect...

The first meeting, sharing and goal setting. (FREE)

Our first free session is a conversation to get to know each other and to develop a shared understanding of your unique desires, goals and requirements.  

My aim is for your child to be comfortable with my presence, not to feel judged or under a microscope and so I can become familiar with….  

  • what your child believes they are good at

  • what they would like to improve on

  • and their passions, hobbies and interests

This helps me to ensure I meet their expectations and provide them with tools and strategies to meet their own goals as well as yours for them. I will also have a starting point for creating and designing specific and interesting lessons with their needs in mind.  

What do tests look like?

Assessment is ongoing as I work alongside your child. I position my teaching and act on their responses and actions to what I present in learning and questioning. NZ curriculum testing resources are utilised to show progress or if required for data or evidence for reporting. Feedback and feedforward are provided after every lesson via your own online private portal with visual pathways and comments in learning areas.

What do lessons look like?

  • Each lesson is completely 1-1 and focused specifically on your child’s learning and emotional needs.

  • Carefully designed lessons are as active, multi-sensory and hands-on as possible.

  • Specific questions are posed to engage thinking and reflection, self-confidence and tools for independent learning.  

  • Our unique learning resources and tools are designed to engage a multi-sensory approach that works with the brain and long term memory.

  • There is no homework but on request, I can provide learning challenges that are fun and creative to reinforce learning that happens within our lesson.

I value and appreciate working alongside your child's teacher and integrating their programme with our goals.


There are no worksheets or computer programmes used during our lessons. A device may be used if the lesson is focused on digital tools orientation or to extend learning opportunities.

Action Stations learning space is spacious, bright, toasty warm and filled with inspiration and learning opportunities. There is an outdoor space for large motor skill learning and messy science experiments as well as a field for learning through movement. Available to our students are some unique extra spaces for learning inspired by the environment, nature and biodiversity.
