WOW! What a whirlwind 2020 has been – and strap yourselves in, there’s still a long time to go!

If we’re to believe any of the ‘time-travel’ movies I grew up watching, then it’s fair to say that the year 2020 will never, EVER, be revisited. Instead there will be documentaries and school history/science research projects comparing this unprecedented time with that of The Plague of the early 1900s.

I hope you are all coping as best as you can, and that you continue to take care of yourselves and each other. 

Life as we knew it took a seismic shift in Australia, just as 2020 commenced. The COVID-19 pandemic impacted us with such an incredible force on our daily lives, and will continue to do so for some time. 

Whilst keeping ourselves and our children healthy and safe is our primary concern, it’s also essential to provide positive learning experiences for our children during these dramatically changing times, and to maintain as much routine and normalcy as possible. 

This has allowed us to create and share with you this jam-packed directory of free learning ideas, activities and resources to help learners stay engaged, entertained and excited to learn. 

Like adults, children are navigating something they have never experienced before. Keeping kids motivated to learn during this time will be an ultimate challenge for many parents. Especially for those who still have work commitments (whether in an external workplace or from within their home), and continue to maintain other essential commitments too.

For those of you who don’t know me, my name is Amber Morgan, and I am the founder of Amber’s Tutelage – a unique online and face-to-face personalised tuition service for people of all ages and capabilities, and an experienced teacher of nearly 30 years. 

Amber’s Tutelage identifies the ‘potholes’ in our students” learning, particularly any foundation concepts in English and Maths, then focusses on filling them in. So, each learner travels their own very unique journey to empowerment in a safe one-on-one learning environment.

We also ensure that confidence, positive thinking, resilience and independence are embedded in one’s memory and become a natural response to events and experiences, which is more important than ever in these uncertain times.

I understand how stressful all of this is for you, as parents, as you try to juggle commitments in what seems like an impossible situation. We are all doing whatever we can to live through this historical event. Not only do you have the added stress of trying to keep your children engaged and connected… you’re experiencing a sudden upheaval of life as we knew it.

This is why we have created the Facebook group Learning Resources For Parents, so that we can all connect, combine and share our ideas and knowledge of learning resources. 

Let’s be thankful for technology and for having such incredible learning resources at our fingertips. 

Stay safe everyone!
