Personal Description:

My name is Courtney and I've recently moved back to New Zealand after two years in London, UK. I am an English and Media Studies teacher with experience teaching a wide variety of students from a wide variety of backgrounds. My personal interests (books, TV, film, and music) naturally align with my chosen subjects and have always allowed me to find common ground with even the most reluctant of students. I love working with teenagers and particularly enjoy helping them to build their self-esteem and find a love for learning. I am patient, easy-going, encouraging, and genuinely enjoy what I do!

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching in secondary schools for the past 5 and a half years both in New Zealand and in the United Kingdom. In my career so far, I have taught students aged from 11-18 years old (years 7 to 13) in a mix of co-ed and single sex classes. I have experience with both the NCEA and GCSE qualification systems. I am confident that I can help in any area needed, be it reading comprehension/analysis, essay/critical writing, creative writing, exam preparation, or even film production and public speaking.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always combined teaching with pastoral care and as I come from schools that prioritise differentiation, I will therefore always put student needs and wants first. I am more than happy to adapt my approach to suit whoever I am working with, though I do believe in having high expectations and students taking responsibility for their learning. I like to mix it up and try a number of different strategies and activities, so we don't have to do the same thing at every session.
