My Experience

I tutor both Cambridge (IGCSE, AS and A2) and NCEA (Levels 1-3) syllabuses, and for the past three years I've been a Biology and Chemistry tutor for several agencies in Auckland - KTL and MyTuition, as well as for CIE Campus. These weekend "crash courses" involve two full days of teaching small groups, with the majority of my students doing well in their exams (with one even getting A*s in every paper!). I've also been a lab demonstrator for the MEDSCI 142 course at Auckland Uni.

How I'd Tutor You

I've tutored students from a wide variety of backgrounds and study styles, and this has taught me how to adapt to each student’s individual way of learning. I am trustworthy, easy going and fun to be around. I believe work should be both enjoyable and rewarding, so try to base my lessons around this.

A little bit more about me

I've been bitten by the travel bug (25 countries and counting) – I simply love learning about different cultures! I live in Northcote but can tutor in the city or the shore, depending on your location.
