Personal Description:

Learning is always something I have loved doing, and through this, I have come to love helping other people to learn too. I have a history of academic excellence throughout my education, and was enrolled in the GATE (Gifted and Talented Education) system during my time at high school. I am very passionate about a wide range of subjects, though science, specifically maths and physics, is my area of specialisation, and I have completed a Bachelor's degree in both subjects as of 2020, with my area of research interest being compressed matter physics (materials).

I was born in Oxford, England, and moved to New Zealand with my parents at a young age to live in Christchurch. After primary, I attended Middleton Grange intermediate, and Riccarton High School, achieving gold bar excellence endorsement at each level of NCEA, and received the excellence scholarship to the University of Canterbury as a result, where I received my degree.
In my spare time I enjoy Latin dancing, playing my musical instruments, and dressmaking.

Tutoring Experience:

I have five years experience in private tuition, both one-to-one, and in group settings. I have completed extensive training in teaching and learning styles for mathematics and English across a wide range of age levels and abilities with particular focus on students entering NCEA at Level 1, and helping them to transition to the new style of assessment.

Tutoring Approach:

My approach to teaching is finding out, and playing to, the strengths and learning types of each student. I do not spoon feed, but work with minor prompts and asking questions so that the student my develop their own process for analysing and solving problems. Creating these mental pathways of understanding allows the student to grasp the 'why' of solving a problem, not just the 'how'. This means that when they encounter the problem in a different form or context, they can adapt their knowledge to fit, rather than being stumped by something they know, but in disguise, as is a very common problem in NZ students.

Academic success is not always easy to achieve, and I know it can often seem overwhelming to compete with 'the smart kids' in the class. Because of this, I have learned to find ways of succeeding at things at which one is not a natural, and how to 'work smart'. I know that the right help can make all the difference between someone understanding something or not, which is why I have a strong faith in good tutoring, without which I personally would not have achieved nearly so well. Because of this, I hope to provide the same service to others, so that they are able to realise their potential.
