Personal Description:

Hello. My name is Jacki and I am currently a Science/Chemistry Teacher at Macleans College. I can provide tutoring in NCEA Level 1 Science (including Chemistry, Biology, & Physics), NCEA Chemistry Level 2, and NCEA Chemistry Level 3.

I was born and raised in the United States of America but immigrated to New Zealand 3 years ago. I have a B.S. in Biomolecular Science from Clarkson University and an M.A. in Teaching & Learning from New York University.

I am friendly, outgoing, enthusiastic, and dedicated to my students.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching at the secondary level for 9 years now:
1 Year at Beacon High School in Manhattan; New York, New York
5 Years at The Aquinas Institute of Rochester; Rochester, New York
1 Year at Kuranui College; Greytown, New Zealand
2 Years at Macleans College; Auckland, New Zealand

I also spend 2 years at University working as a TA (Teacher's Assistant) and tutoring for first year university students

I am a NZQA Marker for Level 2 Chemistry External Exams

Tutoring Approach:

My goal is help each student achieve their very best. I am well versed in pedagogy and working with a variety of students at different levels/abilities. Together, the student and I will work together to create a plan to not only improve the student's marks, but to gain study skills that they can take with them to future course.

A Basic Outline of Tutoring:
We start by breaking down the material into clear, concise bits - making sure each student understands the basic concept(s) involved in the topic. Worksheets and notes can be provided to assist in areas/skills where the student struggles.

Then we'll move on to applying this knowledge to test questions: does the student understand the questions they way they are asked, do they know how to break it apart to see what is required in the answer, and do they have a knowledge of linking words to help guide them through each question?
