Personal Description:

I am a former high school teacher and journalist. I love books and reading and once spent three years teaching in Japan. My favourite thing is spending time with my son. I am presently challenging myself to learn the guitar.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a NZ registered teacher. I have four years’ experience teaching English in NZ secondary schools. I have taught Year 9 and 10 English and also NCEA classes at Levels 1 and 2. I have also taught Foundation literacy in a polytechnic at Levels 2 and 4 and am currently teaching two primary school students through Kip McGrath.

Tutoring Approach:

I enjoy working one to one with students and I have a friendly, relaxed approach to tutoring. I think it is important to focus tuition on the areas of need, but also to build on strengths. I am responsive to learners’ needs and interests and do not like to rigidly stick to a programme if it is not working.
