Personal Description:

I am a 39 year old female teacher. I enjoy games (board games, card games computer games), fitness and reading. I live in the Mount Wellington area but am happy to travel central (e.g. Parnell, Remuera, Newmarket, Ponsonby, Pt Chevalier, Mt Albert etc), east or south depending on the time of day and location. I am taking a year off from teaching at my school this year so that I can study, which means I'm very flexible with hours that I'm available for tutoring.

Tutoring Experience:

I am a registered NZ secondary school teacher with 10 years of teaching experience teaching a variety of subjects including: maths & statistics, philosophy/critical thinking, social studies and psychology from ear 9-13. Along with secondary teaching, I have also previously tutored students in maths and stats.

Tutoring Approach:

I am very patient and explain things slowly, step-by-step until the I believe the student has understood. I strongly believe that repetition works and encourage doing exercises to learn a concept multiple times until the student is confident. I let the student ask questions and pause often to check they have understood. I like using games and fun activities when I believe that they will aid in learning.
