With my limited time at the moment, I am not available for one-on-one tutoring to learn content material.
However, I do want to offer a unique and cheaper option that is great for independent/high-achieving students. My services would be providing your child with a practice exam paper, which is marked with written feedback ($25). I'm also happy to do a video call to give additional guidance and clarifications for an additional fee ($35/hour half, online only).
I do NCEA Level 1 Science (all sciences), Level 2 Biology, Level 2 Chemistry and Level 3 Chemistry.
BSc in Biomedical Science
MSc in Pharmacology
Graduate Diploma in Teaching (Secondary)
Teacher for 8 years with NCEA marking experience.
I am originally from Chicago but have been living in Auckland since 2009 when I moved to study at the University of Auckland. My teaching areas of specialization include science, biology, and chemistry. I have eight years of teaching experience and I am currently working at Edgewater College as the Assistant HOD of Science. During the last eight years, I have taught Year 7 to Year 11 General Science, Year 12 Biology, Year 12 Chemistry, and Year 13 Chemistry. I have also taught a range of low-ability and high-ability classes, so I am confident that I can help with the needs of your child!
In addition to my classroom experience, I have NCEA exam marking experience, so I can give your child insight into how it works and strategies to make the most of it.
I can also provide that extra added benefit of career advice in the science/healthcare area as I have many contacts in them and have a Masters of Science, plus advice on applying to American universities since I completed high school in the US.
My personal interests include feminism, racial equality, and mental health awareness. Outside of work my hobbies include baking, embroidery, sewing, knitting, jewellery making, and social netball.
