Personal Description:

Hi- my name is Tess. I have been teaching and tutoring for 15 years. I am a NZer but have spent time living in Korea, England and Indonesia. I am a fully registered and qualified high school English teacher. I taught mainstream English at Cashmere High School for 4.5 years before leaving to teach in an international school in Indonesia. At Cashmere, I was Literacy Leader as well as classroom teacher. In Indonesia I was English Co-ordinator. My specialty is the NZ curriculum especially NCEA, the Cambridge curriculum, especially IGCSE, IB's MYP and ESOL, especially TOEFL and IELTS.

Tutoring Experience:

15 years teaching in the classroom and tutoring in my students' homes.

Tutoring Approach:

I have tutored students from many different countries, NZ, Korea, China, Taiwan, and Portugal. I have also tutored students from many different age groups, ranging from Yr 4 to Yr 13. I have tutored students from a variety of schools, there are not many schools in Christchurch that I have not had a student attend. From this, I have gathered a lot of information about what teachers expect from their students. I am also knowledgeable about the NZ curriculum and the changes occurring in NCEA. I find that one to one lessons are the best for my students. Most students do not get good one to one time in the classroom. I teach students how to use structure in their writing, what they need to do in order to achieve with Excellence and with their vocabulary and language features in order to write with confidence. My students say that I am friendly, a little crazy (funny) and very helpful in teaching them what they are expected to do at their school.
