I am currently a first year student at Victoria University, completing a Bachelor of Arts in Film, Psychology, and History. I gained the Victoria University Excellence Scholarship for my study.
In 2016 as a year 13 student I was a peer tutor for year 8 Mathematics and French. I also was a peer support leader, helping to integrate a class of year 7s into high school. I have spent many hours aiding friends who were struggling, mainly in Maths, History and French, and English throughout NCEA. These experiences not only taught me how to relate to younger students but how find ways of enjoying difficult content, and finding different ways to explain concepts when the initial teachings in class have not made sense.
