This year I am studying towards a BSC in Psychology and Computer Science at the University of Canterbury, with a minor in English Literature. During my study I have gained lots of experience working with school age children. This past year I have tutored both Primary and High school students. I also previously volunteered with the Imagination Station, assisting them with their after school program where they taught kids stop motion animation and robotics.
I have more than 2 years of experience working with children so I know the most difficult part can be maintaining discipline without the power of a parental figure. I now feel confident setting standards while generating a fun atmosphere. During my time working in childcare I have come to thoroughly enjoy conversing with children, as they often see the world a little differently. I am most comfortable caring for Primary School age children and above, and since I have experience with tutoring I am more than happy to help with school work. I also hold a Plunket Babysitting certificate and have been trained in basic first aid.
I have been tutoring for the entire academic year with Aheadstart. I have tutored multiple students in NCEA, as well as younger students, in Mathematics, Science and English.
