I approach my courses based on passion and drive - if someone really cares about the subject they're learning, results will always follow. I am able to provide my own exemplars from NCEA work, which have received excellence in the NCEA system. I will ensure I help the people I tutor learn and grow by showing them their potential and providing feedback on their work based on my own experience in the media industry.
I am a second-year Political Communication student at Victoria University of Wellington and have a keen interest in media and politics. In addition, I have experience as a published journalist for some of New Zealand's biggest media companies, including NewsHub, Stuff, and The Spinoff. I received an excellence endorsement in NCEA levels one, two, and three and am passionate about teaching the next generation of writers.
I am a current student at Victoria University working towards a degree in Political Communication. In my spare time, I enjoy photography, debating, and discovering new music.
