I am a patient, creative and flexible tutor who works to her students' needs. I have many hours of practical experience tutoring both individuals and groups and can ascertain a student's level and learning style very quickly. I can either 'teach to a test' or use my own resources to improve a student's English generally.
I am a CELTA qualified English teacher with over five years of experience teaching English to students of all different levels. I have helped ESOL students improve their skills up to the standard of native speakers, and students at 'Achieved' level in their NCEA standards to achieve 'Excellence'. I have worked as a self-employed tutor as well as for reputable tutoring companies such as MyTuition.
I have over five years of relevant tutoring experience. Between 2016 and 2017 I worked as a tutor for MyTuition, tutoring English, History and Economics from NCEA Level 1 to Level 3. All my students saw dramatic improvement and I was awarded Tutor of the Week.
I have a thorough understanding of the the NCEA curriculum from my own background. I was in the top 3% of scholars for all three years and achieved NCEA endorsed with Excellence from Levels 1-3, and subject Excellence endorsement in Economics, amongst others. I also received three NCEA scholarships in Economics, English and History. I am currently tutoring a Year 12 student in Level 2 Economics.
Recently, up until Covid-19 I worked as a private English tutor for two international students, for 18 months, who attend a prestigious central Auckland private high school. They both improved significantly and are now able to communicate fluently in English and perform on a similar level to local students in exams.
Prior to this I tutored English at a community centre on Saturdays for three months in 2016. In Year 13, I was an academic mentor to Year 12 students and assisted them with NCEA queries, including in Economics. I am currently employed as a Law Tutor by Acetutor, with the aim of helping students achieve A/A+ grades in their law papers.
I also obtained the CELTA qualification and the NZ Certificate in Language Teaching in 2018. I am able to work confidently with either a given curriculum or provide my own teaching resources, and these years of tutoring experience mean I am familiar with a range of learning styles and speeds and can adapt my modality to suit the student.
