Personal Description:

I graduated both NCEA and International Baccalaureate with top marks in Biology, Chemistry, French and English. I am studying medicine at university in England and have returned home during my extended holiday to help other students achieve the best possible academic results!

Tutoring Experience:

I have tutored NCEA and intermediate age students for the past five years, as well as voluntary classroom teaching experience. I tutored high school and GCSE French for the past year, where my tutees and I would work on both written and spoken French.

Tutoring Approach:

I tailor each session to the students needs and learning methods. All students learn best in different ways and I accommodate for this in our lessons with a range of learning aides.
For the sciences I focus on areas of the syllabus that the tutee struggles with. A typical lesson would include reviewing material covered in the previous lesson, going over the new content together using a range of learning aides such as textbooks, videos, flashcards, memory tricks and discussion. We then work some example questions out together before allowing the student to attempt questions by themselves. I will often give the student optional homework questions with step-by-step guidelines on answer format.
For French I believe that the biggest hurdle to overcome is feeling uncomfortable or doubting oneself when working in their second language. I encourage a positive learning environment with plenty of spoken French where the student is happy to make mistakes in order to learn from them. Depending on what the student struggles with, lessons will consist of games, conversation, reading comprehension, practice questions and worksheets before moving on to past exam questions.
