Guilia is my son’s tutor, she has been working with him over the past nine months as we have been working to fill some of the gaps and strengthen some of areas of weakness.

Over the course of our relationship, I have come to realise that children across the community are experiencing challenges, and whilst this may have always been the case I wanted to talk to Guila about the educational system, changes, and the myriad of varying philosophies that can make navigating the process as a parent super difficult.

Giulia is a qualified primary school teacher with over a decade of teaching experience.She has experience teaching in a range of  ettings,including as a TESOL educator in Italy where she taught English to primary and high school students, as well as to adults. She also spent three years teaching Indigenous children of all ages in remote communities in Western Australia where she also gained a post-graduate certificate in Early Childhood Education.
Through these experiences Giulia came to a deeper understanding of the importance of a structured and systematic approach to the teaching of reading and writing.

Giulia has worked privately as a Multisensory Language Specialist (MSL) for the past five years, teaching children with dyslexia and dysgraphia. She has also trained with Ron Yoshimoto in phonology and morphology. Giulia has a particular interest in developing older students’ writing skills, which includes supporting their understanding of basic sentence structure, to helping students to clearly articulate and express themselves in longer stretches of writing.

As Director of The Ranges Learning Centre in the outer eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Giulia works with parents navigating the often-overwhelming world of supporting a child with learning differences and advocates for them within the school setting. She performs diagnostic assessments, writes reports to assist parents at home and within schools, and also takes small groups of students.
