Learners will complete the required curriculum for their year level in their jurisdiction in the topic of mathematics.
I am a native English speaker with a 150-hour TESOL qualification from Arizona State University, a 12-hour Certificate in "Foundations of Teaching for Learning: Curriculum" from The Commonwealth Education Trust, and post-graduate qualifications in Applied Linguistics from Monash University. 

I have been homeschooling my own children for 9 years so far (and counting!) which involves reporting to the Home Education Unit in Queensland, Australia. These reports require both curriculum and results reporting. I have successfully individualised the curriculum that I have used for each of my children in order to meet their individual needs, and this skill is transferrable to meeting the needs of all of my students. 

I have been successfully teaching these core subjects on Outschool as separate classes to many students, and now this course will be the result of the culmination of all of this knowledge and these skills. I have also been teaching these separate subjects in composite classes, meaning that there is a range of ages and abilities amongst my students in these classes, and this works in much the same way as homeschooling children of different ages does; the older and more capable students lead the way, which promotes leadership qualities, and as they are called on to explain concepts to the younger students, this repetition reinforces their own learning. The younger students rise to the challenge as they want to try some of the work that might be considered to be above their level, in addition to their own level of work, and this ensures that advanced younger learners are not bored and disengaged. 

I am also a lawyer in Australia, therefore speaking and teaching clearly have been a part of my life for many years, and now I am also applying these skills to teaching others.

We have always homeschooled and participated in distance education. We came to Outschool in 2018 as learners, and now I am excited to also teach on this platform. I understand the needs of parents of learners here as I am one myself.

Assessments Offered
Learners will have weekly assignments to complete as take-home assignments to be submitted for feedback and marking. These are offered but not compulsory as I understand that some learners are completing this course in conjunction with other courses and they may have other assessments to complete elsewhere. However, for those learners who wish to complete these assignments and expand their overall portfolio, and for those who are doing this course as their main course, these assessments will be useful in determining where learners are already successful, and where they need to apply themselves more.
Grades Offered
Rubric will accompany each assignment.
Handouts will be provided in the classroom as applicable to the sessions.

- Learners do not need to access the internet outside of Outschool for these lessons.
