Vickie Dean – Teacher

Vickie Dean – Teacher

Vickie is a vastly experienced teacher who has helped hundreds of children to become more confident learners.

A specialist in early education, primary mathematics and literacy, Vickie has a unique ability to explain complex ideas in a way that is easy for children to understand. Her sense of humour and relaxed style make Vickie a popular teacher of Kids First’s after school tuition programs, where she supports children in both individual and in small group classes.

Vickie’s experience and versatility as a teacher is demonstrated by the success that her students have achieved. Many of her Selective Schools and Scholarship Preparation students have reached their goals and are now benefiting from exciting educational opportunities. Vickie has also guided children in Years 1-6 who lack confidence in Maths and English to better results and awards that recognise the improvements they have made.

At Kids First, Vickie not only shares her gift for teaching with school aged children, but also with children who are preparing to start formal education. Pre-schoolers aged 4 and 5 enjoy her encouragement and care in our Ready Set School school readiness and social skills program, where she collaborates with our speech pathologists and occupational therapists to give children strong foundations for learning.
