Justin Clark

MEd, MLearningInnovation, BEd, BA

I am a registered qualified Queensland primary and secondary school teacher. I have two Masters degrees as well as a bachelors degree. The Masters degrees were majoring in learning disability such as ASD, dyslexia and reading and writing difficulties, along with learning innovation. This focussed on educational theory along with enhancing educational practice.

My bachelor degree was in the area of early childhood education from prep to Year 3. The combination of this academic learning and practical experience has made me a specialist in effective learning difficulties tutoring. This enables more to deliver focussed Iessons which are specific to the required learning needs.

I also have a blue card.
