Hi there! I am really excited to be presenting my services on Find A Tutor. I am looking to offer friendly, comprehensive and flexible tutoring for both primary and secondary school students in the Wellington region.
I have grown up being fascinated by the nuances of how people learn, and discovering the tools to make learning easy and exciting for everyone. Being inspired by my grandmother, a teacher and principal for over thirty years, I have gained the academic and communication skills required to work effectively with students of all ages and backgrounds. My interests lie mainly in the sciences and arts, with a particular love of Biology and Spanish, and have tutored these subjects for three years.
My tutoring style involves well-integrated, interactive sessions, with visual aids, games and exercises to actively practice the skills required. I believe in a holistic approach to learning, which includes emotional and social aspects of students' lives. I believe it is important to build a strong rapport with the student in order to fully understand their needs, both in and out of the classroom. My years in tutoring, nannying and mentoring roles have taught me that working through these can make the time spent together more productive and fun.
In addition to my two main subjects, I have experience teaching Art History, Junior English, Science and Mathematics. My next goal is to become an auxiliar aid and teach English to primary school students in Spain, or gain a teaching qualification in New Zealand in 2019, forging a path towards helping others realise and enjoy their full potential.
Feel free to ask any questions about my services. I look forward to hearing from you!
