Experienced online lecturer offering lessons in Communication and Education in South Auckland

Methodology

I am student-centered and I enjoy adapting my teaching to the needs of the learner. I believe in the potential of the individual and I encourage students to reach for their potential. I encourage goal-setting and I provide strategies to ensure success in meeting goals.

Experience

I have a BA in English and Psychology, post-graduate qualifications in adult, secondary, activity-based, and online teaching. I have taught in NZ secondary schools and at Manukau Institute of Technology for 20 years. I have taught in many areas including ESOL, foundation studies, communication, teaching, business admin, and Te Tiriti o Waitangi. I have helped students gain their qualifications in assessment and moderation.
