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 and a half years the treasure remains unfound.



8 Dec 2020 – Time Kid of the Year

Time magazine has named its first ever Kid of the Year, American school girl and scientist Gitanjali Rao. This follows recognition of Gitanjali's accomplishments over a number of years, including being named America's Top Young Scientist in 2017 for co-inventing a method for detecting lead in water when she was 11 (the photos in the article show her demonstrating the device twelve days before she turned 12). She has her own Wikipedia listing which lists several other achievements such as being a three-time TEDx speaker.

To quote this article in The Guardian:

She said she hoped she could inspire others to dream up ideas to “solve the world’s problems”.

Gitanjali is the sort of person who will solve some of the world's problems. She isn't afraid to dream big, put in the work, and try out her ideas. You go, girl!

22 July 2020 – Present situation

My schedule is quite full at the moment, and my waiting list is only getting longer, so it's unlikely I'll be able to provide new students an available tutoring slot. However, enquiries are welcome.

I have a couple of evening slots still available, which because of the late times are more suitable for senior students.
