Hey! I’m Aini and I am tutoring Mathematics, Calculus, Science and Physics at AHeadStart. I am currently a student at the University of Canterbury in my first professional year of a Bachelor of Engineering in Natural Resources Engineering.
I achieved merit endorsements in NCEA levels 1, 2 and 3. I missed out on excellence endorsement in level 2 by 3 credits and missing out on a goal by so little made me very upset, but I always pick myself up, dust myself off and come back stronger and more eager to learn. I realised later on that the reason for me struggling to achieve my goals during those years was that I set goals that were much too broad and unmanageable. This experience taught me how much effort is needed to achieve your goals and how to breakdown large goals into smaller, more manageable pieces.
When it comes to learning new things and studying for exams, I believe that it is incredibly important to have the foundations and basic principles understood. This then gives you a better grip on more advanced concepts.
In year 13 I was a liaison student for year 9 students where my role was to help them through the transition from intermediate to high school as well as guide and mentor them through their first year of high school. I was involved in a variety of extracurricular activities throughout high school years including tennis, badminton, swimming, underwater hockey (the greatest sport) and service council. Scuba diving is also one of my favorite hobbies.
I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve your goals this year!Go Back
