I am currently a first year student at Victoria University, completing a Bachelor of Arts in Film and Psychology, with a minor in either History or French. 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. As a peer tutor I had weekly sessions in which I helped my student with her maths and French homework and problems that she was having in class. I also was a peer support leader, helping to integrate a class of year 7s into high school. This helped me in relating to and helping students of a younger age, occasionally helping out with academic needs when needed. I have spent many hours aiding friends who were struggling to pass, mainly in Maths, 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.
