Personal Description:

I am an experienced tutor with three daughters, one now at University, who regularly ask me for help with maths and science.
I have a strong IT background, as a developer, and can explain computer concepts with minimal jargon!
I speak Japanese better than most non-native speakers, and studied Japanese to third-year level at Massey University.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught maths, science with a physics speciality, and computer studies in New Zealand high schools.
I taught ESOL for two years in Japan - where I met my Japanese wife - and in a Christchurch language school, so I am quite confident I can help students having trouble with English!

Tutoring Approach:

I find out what gaps students have in their understanding by asking questions gently, then we work together to fill in these gaps.
The gaps in understanding might relate to an assignment or exam, or more general classwork/homework.
There can be more benefit for students from this approach initially, than from strengthening areas they are already confident in!
I offer remote tuition via Zoom or Teams, at a mutually agreed time according to timezone differences. I am also able to travel near Christchurch to tutor students in a location they choose, for a fair travel-distance-based charge.
