Tutoring in your own home, at your own convenience

Today's schooling typically doesn't allow any room for individual learning, which means that students who don't suit the pace of the whole class can fall between the cracks. If students aren't achieving at the level they are capable of, their learning can stall, leading to boredom and frustration. Their confidence can suffer and they won't enjoy school as much as they should.

I can help. I offer personal tutoring in a range of subjects for NCEA and Cambridge International Exams, and can provide students with the skills and confidence they need to achieve their potential.

I'm based in Auckland and will come to your home at a time that suits you, for maximum convenience and maximum learning. Because the home is a familiar environment, it's where the student is the most comfortable – this is an important part of enjoying learning.

Treasure Hunt

After eleven years the treasure remains unfound.



20-02-2020 – The effect of bullying

Australian boy Quaden Bayles is nine years old and has achondroplasia, a form of dwarfism. He has been bullied so badly he has wanted to kill himself since he was 6 years old. His mother has had enough and posted this video (on Facebook originally; warning, strong content).

More on the story here (including NZ support phone numbers), Aus news article here, and a follow-up here. Update: Here as well.

One of my students of the last four years has a form of dwarfism. Dear chap – he has now finished school. It was a pleasure and a privilege tutoring him.

5 December 2019 – Auckland Grammar School 2019 Dux

A big congratulations to Alex Hornung, Auckland Grammar School 2019 Dux. Over the last five years Alex has worked incredibly hard to achieve fantastic results. I've found he's someone who is not satisfied with just knowing answers; he also wants to know why things work the way they do. His work ethic and desire to understand whatever he learns will serve him well as he heads to university. I wish him the very best.

26 November 2019 – More NCEA maths exam errors

Well, another exam season and sure enough, there were errors in the NCEA Level 2 Mathematics and Statistics exam. I've made an answers page looking at some of the questions, with worked solutions and comments on the questions.
