Our Teachers

At Full Spectrum Education we pride ourselves in the quality and commitment of our teaching staff.

We are passionate about helping your child achieve the highest academic outcomes possible.

Each of our teachers has a strong education background as well as additional qualifications and areas of expertise to ensure we can confidently and proudly teach your child.

How do you choose a teacher for your child?

When you have children struggling with their grades or simply not performing as well as you would expect, whom would you turn to? There are hundreds of tutors in the marketplace. Some good, most average. So how do you choose the right one for your family?

The same way you choose any new service. You look at their qualifications, their drive, their background of success and their satisfied customers. This information is how you can decide who offers the best solution to your family's individual needs.


You can be assured that all of our teachers

  • Are registered members of the Queensland College of Teachers or are fully qualified experts in their respective vocational subjects 
  • Are current, and employed teachers working with either Education Queensland, Catholic Education, Independent Private Schools, Universities, TAFE Colleges or are practicing in their chosen field of expertise

  • Have undergone an extensive application, induction and training process
  • Use lesson plans and teaching resources that have been specifically written and developed for Full Spectrum Education Services. All resources are based on and reference the Australian National Curriculum
  • Work in partnership with teachers and the Student Learning Management at Full Spectrum Education  to develop individual lessons for students
  • Teach students individually throughout Australia from Preparatory to Year 12 and University, face-to-face and in person
