About Love of Learning

Angela Neville- Director

B.Ed, SPELD NZ Registered Teacher

Certified Feuerstein Mediator – Standard, Tactile and Basic programmes

Level C Registered Assessor (NZCER)

I have been a qualified, registered teacher for over 17 years and have enjoyed teaching in several different schools around Auckland, working with students of all ages. My interest in working in this area stemmed from my son who has received some excellent support for his dyslexia from SPELD NZ.

I am currently studying post graduate Educational Psychology at Massey University to further my broad knowledge of students' learning and behaviour.

Your child can achieve success in their learning!

Whether it is tertiary study, learning at secondary or primary school level, or even pre-school, I can help. I have a special interest in helping children who learn differently.

If your child needs extra assistance in a particular area or extension work as a critical thinker, or both, I can help.

My goal is to enhance your child’s learning by assessing their individual strengths and difficulties, thereby determining their potential to learn. I then enjoy implementing an individual education programme for your child which provides fun, interesting, educational activities to cater for these individual needs.

As a certified mediator with the Feuerstein method of cognitive enhancement, I provide small group or individual lessons for all ages and abilities. Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment uses a variety of mediated learning methods to enhance metacognition, thinking and learning.

Professional development courses for teachers, teacher aides and other education staff can also be provided. Learn more about effective strategies for working with students with Specific Learning Difficulties and behaviour issues.

I also privately tutor children who have English as their second language, or those who wish to improve their abilities in Mathematics, English or other curriculum subjects.

Location

Tuition can take place in my home at Hatfields Beach or I can travel to your home or school – I also conduct lessons by Skype for those living out of Auckland - whatever suits you best!
