Tutoring experience

I began tutoring in 2013 through my high school's 'math clinic', helping other students at a weekly lunchtime session. After graduating from Wellington College I started private tutoring other students at university as well as high school students at a range of levels, including scholarship papers. I also consistently help out friends with assignments and tutorials at uni.

I have also taught violin lessons, relieving for my teacher and teaching her other students.
