Personal Description:

I completed level 3 (NECA) in the year 2008 with an Excellence endorsement. Later did Bacholer of Engineering - Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Auckland. As my final year engineering project I developed a software that helps non physics teachers teach NCEA physics in rural NZ.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been tutoring physics (NCEA) for over 6 years. Each year I have about 10 students who start rather early on the year with me. I have a very good relationship with my students and their parents and make sure their time with me caters for their bigger goals and not just passing 1 or 2 papers. Most of these students have a goal of heading into a career with physics as a prerequisite. I am extremely proud to say that none of my students have failed a physics external, although most of start tuition after failing their mock exam.

Tutoring Approach:

Each individual person is different in their learning style, so your first session with me will be 45 min free consultation. There will be a couple of personality/ learning styles assessment followed by a self evaluation for each sub-topic.

I prefer a classroom approach. I like students to start with at the beginning of the year follow the sub-topi currently being taught. I have hand outs that we usually work through and most of the time like to use NCEA past questions to practice. I make good physics analogies for the students to better understand the fundamental problem. I did all my schooling in New Zealand so I mirror the teaching environments at school matching the speed of learning the student requires.

I tutor from home, however I have created a separate space just for this purpose that will allow for effective tutoring experience with no disruptions.
