About the lesson

As everyone learns differently it is important to have a range of different teaching approaches, whether visual, verbal, or learning by example. All are very important to providing a well balanced and successful tutoring service. I believe that students need a friendly face and not someone who is just another teacher.

About Mackenzie

I am a 22 year old masters engineering student with a passion for mathematics, football, and figuring out how stuff works! I also love to teach and help people learn as it is very rewarding to see the spark light when a concept hits. I have experience tutoring NCEA content and above for a range of ages in the Canterbury area.

  • 01

    When did you develop an interest in your chosen field and in private tutoring?

    Ever since I was young I always had a special place in my heart for math (as cheesy as it sounds), and math & physics have always been subjects that have made sense to me, although I definitely know what it is like to struggle with a subject. Tutoring was just the next natural step, as I love helping others to achieve that sense of learning a topic.

  • 02

    Tell us more about the subject you teach, the topics you like to discuss with students (and possibly those you like a little less).

    I teach all kinds of mathematics and physics, whether that be basic algebra or general relativity and I love all subjects that require a little bit of complexity (or a lot). I also certainly have some subjects that I struggle with myself, although I like to view these as a new challenge for my brain 🙃.

  • 03

    Did you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?

    Of course! I have many fond memories from my high school classrooms, but my biggest inspiration is definitely my mother, who taught primary school children locally for most of my childhood (what a hero).

  • 04

    What do you think are the qualities required to be a good tutor?

    Definitely patience and understanding. Technical knowledge and intellect are super useful to be a tutor, but learning how to transfer that knowledge is the biggest challenge as everybody learns differently.

  • 05

    Provide a valuable anecdote related to your subject or your days at school.

    In primary school I cried after messing up an arithmetic calculation, and my teacher was so kind that I forgot all about it. Lesson: math doesn't care about your feelings, but your teacher should!

  • 06

    What were the difficulties or challenges you faced or are still facing in your subject?

    Making basic mistakes. I have learnt that making mistakes is the only thing I will do forever, and it is just part of the process. No matter how complex the math is, I will still end up pressing the wrong button on my calculator (it just happens).

  • 07

    Do you have a particular passion? Is it teaching in general or an element of the subject or something completely different?

    I definitely do love to teach, but my true passion is football (the kicking ball kind). Some things just can't be explained I guess.

    What makes you a Superprof?

    My love for Lola from Shark Tale, I know you know.
