Information About Natasha - Parua Bay tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Natasha:
I am a recent arrival to New Zealand, born and raised in Hawaii. I have been an educator for my entire career, and particularly enjoy working with secondary students. I have a degree in biology, and I am comfortable with the basics, but I have been working in international issues and education for the past 14 years. I am also certified to teach International Baccalaureate Global Politics, and would be happy to work with students on course content and/or various internal assessments, all of which I know well. 98% of my students passed the IB course. When I am not working, I love to surf, hike, travel, and spend time with my husband and 4 year old son.
I am a secondary school teacher who was mentored at Punahou School (Barack Obama's alma mater), and I have taught science, social studies, as well as ESL in Japan. I have additional 12 years of experience as an educational program coordinator and have arranged and led multiple trips overseas to Asia and the Middle East.
I like to get to know each student - their goals and challenges - and work with them to both understand the material they strive to master as well as build confidence and accountability in their academic work. I will use our time to address specific assignments and questions, which will be driven by the student.
