Personal Description:

I currently work as an RTLB and have been a teacher for over 17 years. I taught Mathematics to Yr 7 - 13 students all over the world from Scotland to Abu Dhabi, Malaysia and New Zeland. I have been in New Zealand for over 12 years now.
I enjoy all sports, particularly rugby and getting out and about.
I have just finished tutoring my niece in Mathematics and enjoyed the 1 to 1 experience of teaching and wish to continue doing it.

Tutoring Experience:

I trained as a Secondary Maths teacher at Murray House, Edinburgh University in 2000. Since then I have been in various roles in education continously for the past 17 years.
I have been a Mathematics teacher of Yr 7 - Yr 13 students for over 11 years in 3 different countries.
I completed a Post Graduate Certificate in Learning and Behaviour at Massey University in Auckland in 2014 within my current role as a Resource Teacher of Learning and Behaviour (RTLB), which I have been in since 2012. The role allows me to find out what supports each student needs inorder to learn effectively.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in facilitating learning where the student will be able to apply the same learning strategies to other subjects and areas of their life.
Learning has to be purposeful and with an element of enjoyment, which is my focus for teaching.
I use logical step methods for solving questions, as well as other appropriate strategies to help organise the information mentally, to be able to apply when needed… like exams.
