Personal Description:

Hi I'm Nikki, I am a second year medical student at Bond University and a fully qualified teacher. Through tutoring, I hope to help students become more enthusiastic about their learning. During my Bachelor's degree in Science, I gained a large knowledge base and developed a range of learning strategies which I think would help many students become more confident as they strengthen their study skills. As a teacher, I strongly believe in maintaining a healthy work-life balance. In my spare time, I enjoy cooking and playing social badminton and netball. I am also a Leader with Girl Guides WA, so that gives me a nice break in the week too. During my weekends, I take some time out to read as well as catch up with my friends.

Tuition Experience:

Following my Bachelor degree, I completed my Graduate Diploma in Education at UWA in Perth. It was only then that I understood how important it is to recognise student individuality when it comes to learning. I have been a private tutor for over 2 years now and am also a relief teacher at Greenwood College in Perth where I teach in a range of learning areas from Science and English to Maths and Media. I have also worked as a tutor with the P&C tutoring program at Robina Primary school here in Queensland. My Graduate Diploma in Education has really taught me about how students learn and the importance of adapting how I teach in order to meet my students' individual needs and preferred learning styles. I love interacting with my students at a one-on-one level and enjoy seeing them grow over time, not only academically but their enthusiasm and self confidence too. Over my secondary and tertiary education, I have developed a strong foundation of studying strategies and revision techniques - something that I believe is just as important as learning the content itself. I'd love to share these with my students and help them find what techniques work best for them.

With my upper secondary students (year 11-12), I believe that targeted learning is really important. My students usually come to sessions with topics/concepts/questions they have or are currently struggling with at school or for exam preparation. If not, then I prepare lesson plans and resources targeted to their syllabus.

With my lower secondary students (Year 7-10), I usually use their school syllabus as a guide and we work through the topic/s week by week, consolidating their understanding. However, this is in no way set and can always work out a plan that for works for you. I have also accumulated a range of resources and worksheets in my teaching experiences that I am more than happy to share with my students during our sessions and for them to take home and use as a source of study. I also run causal/one off sessions to help with exam revision and written assignments, for example.
