Meet the Owner: Andrew Johns

Andrew Mentone

Hi, my name is Andrew, and I am the owner of Mentone NumberWorks’nWords centre. For the last six years I was employed as a teacher in the N.T. There, I worked in a small school on the edge of the Tanami desert in an Aboriginal community called Lajamanu. During my time teaching in Lajamanu, I developed a passion for teaching grammar and phonics. Previously, I worked in South Korea teaching ESL and learnt a lot about the English language from the many talented educators there. Following my time in South Korea, I travelled Asia and experienced the cultures of many countries in the area.

After many years overseas or in the desert, I have finally returned to Melbourne, where I hope to stay for many years to come.

My daughter and son have both attended this tutoring for maths- both really enjoyed it. My son really looks forward to coming- tells me it is fun and he enjoys completing the tasks, feels like he is accomplishing things and can see the difference this is making to his confidence in the classroom at school.
