EducationI have a BSc in mathematics and psychology, with first class honors in psychology, and a MSc in statistics, with first class honors. In 2015 I was awarded the prestigious Prince of Wales Scholarship to complete at PhD in Biostatistics at Cambridge University, however I ultimately decided to not take this offer up. I am familiar with most undergraduate mathematics and statistics (as well as a lot of postgraduate material),
I began my university studies at Princeton University on a full scholarship, however for health reasons I transferred after a year and completed the rest of my studies at Auckland University.
In high school, I represented NZ twice at the International Maths Olympiad. I also gained NCEA scholarships in Calculus and Statistics (as well as Physics, French, and Economics), and was awarded Dux of my school while still in year 12.
ExperienceI have been tutoring for the past 10 years, and have helped more than 200 students of all ages and abilities to improve in Maths and Physics. I've also worked as a tutor at Auckland University, and at the Epsom Institute of Education.
I am thoroughly familiar with all exam systems offered in NZ (NCEA, Scholarship, Cambridge, IB), as well as the American SAT and GRE exams (I gained a perfect 800 in the maths SAT exam). I can also tutor olympiad maths, and help with preparation for the police exam. Finally, I am also able to help out with most undergraduate level mathematics and statistics.
HobbiesI adjust my approach to individual students' needs, however in general I am a friendly, patient tutor whose aim is to build my students' confidence as well as ability in mathematics.
With my younger students I typically try to make lessons as enjoyable as possible, while with my older students the main focus is on learning the material necessary to achieve well on exams.
My students tell me that I am good at explaining tricky concepts in ways they can understand, and I don't mind going over concepts several times until a student 'gets' it.
In my free time I enjoy piano, chess, yoga, and taking my chihuahua for walks.
