Personal Description:

Let me help you prepare faster for your external exams :) I'm a NZ trained secondary school English teacher with extensive tutoring experience. I've been successfully tutoring students *online* for almost two years now, and currently have a special rate for first-time students - just in time for the NCEA exams!

I taught NCEA Levels 1-3 English at a North Shore high school in Auckland for two years, before relocating to the beautiful island of Taiwan in 2019.

As a native English speaker growing up in Auckland, I attended Westlake Girls High School, and excelled in both the NCEA and Cambridge systems. I received top grades in English and History (including First in New Zealand for Cambridge AS Level History) and passed the NZQA scholarship exams in English, History and Geography in my final year. I subsequently attended the University of Auckland, on two scholarships, and graduated with two degrees (Law + Arts) in 2013.

In addition to teaching and tutoring, I have work experience in digital marketing, mentoring, art direction, and tertiary-level research and analysis. In my spare time, I enjoy actively improving my Mandarin Chinese, hiking, reading, all things film-related, playing badminton and drinking copious amounts of tea!

Tutoring Experience:

I've been tutoring part-time for five years and teaching English full-time in a classroom setting for three years now. Currently based in Taiwan, I continue to teach English Literature and Film, and can now add English Language Arts (Grammar), Performance Arts (Drama) to my teaching repertoire.

While teaching in Auckland, the Year 13 students in my classes gained the second-highest number of Excellence grades in NCEA exams out of all the Year 13 classes in the school. In the past five years, I've tutored and coached a wide range of students (ages ranging from 8 - 51), with verifiable and quantifiable success.

I completed my Graduate Diploma in Secondary Teaching in 2015, where I learned the latest and most effective teaching methods and put these into practice at a progressive and high-performing North Shore high school. I have also completed a Level 5 TEFL Course to teach English to speakers of other languages.

Tutoring Approach:

I am highly knowledgeable, experienced, organised and have a warm - but firm - demeanour. I believe in a collaborative, interactive and engaging way of tutoring. I incorporate confidence building into all my lessons as a necessary skill for optimal learning.

You will receive customised help, tailored to your unique needs. I also provide excellent, up-to-date resources to enhance and reinforce your learning experience.

Over the last five years, I have empowered many students to achieve their unique sets of goals. I look forward to hearing from you soon!
