Tutor Information


It always warms my heart to see a student do well in their studies, to know that their hard work has paid off! I recognise each student as unique and therefore I teach with an open mind and try to employ a plethora of strategies to better communicate taught material. Despite having short stints of experience in teaching individuals of differing abilities and learning challenges, I have found that positive encouragement and constant reassurance are as important as imparting academic knowledge in assisting my students to succeed and realize their full potential.
