Helen was educated in country South Australia and trained as a teacher at the University of Adelaide. Helen began her teaching career in a rural school and enjoyed it so much that she and her husband stayed for 16 years before moving back to Adelaide. In total, Helen taught for 35 years in both DECD and the private system. Helen began working as a tutor at REM+ Tuition in 2014.
Why I teach at REM+ Tuition
REM+ Tuition is a rewarding, positive and happy place for staff and students. I appreciate the commitment of the students who come to REM+ Tuition and the great support their parents give to make a difference to the educational journey of their children. REM+ Tuition has given me the opportunity to work with small groups of students and to address their individual needs.
When I am not working, you will find me…
I spend time with my family, sharing an interest in sport, particularly hockey and cricket. The new Adelaide Oval is a place I like to be, particularly in summer when the Test Cricket is a ‘must not miss’ event. I have followed cricket since I was young and have fond memories of my father driving me down to Adelaide from the Riverland in our old VW to go to the cricket. I am interested in travel and I also enjoy having coffee with friends, reading and keeping up with current affairs. Gardening hasn’t had as much commitment of late but I love my garden and I hope to get back to sewing and reinvigorating my love for art one day!
