Hi, I’m Alexandra and I’m a Biology, Calculus, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, Physics and Science tutor with AHeadStart. I’m currently in my third professional year of a Bachelor of Chemical and Process Engineering at the University of Canterbury.
Before moving to Canterbury, I lived in Feilding and attended Feilding High School. Whilst there I achieved Excellence endorsements at all levels of NCEA and excellence and merit endorsements in all subjects I teach. Therefore, I have a good understanding of the subject material and can tutor others to attain a high level of success. My studies at UC have also provided me with a more in depth understanding of the theory behind the material taught in NCEA and an appreciation for how these subjects may be applied in real life.
I graduated Feilding High School in 2017 and was awarded the Hoggard Family Trophy for Runner-Up to Dux, the Fonterra award for Science and Technology, the Heinz Watties Cup for being top of Chemistry and the Beckers Family Cup for Top Student in English. I also have some skill in leadership as I attended a Young Women in Leadership course at Massey University.
I have a real passion for the subjects I teach and aim to inspire others to love them as I do. I also have been tutoring others since 2017 and this has given me an ability to adapt to each person’s learning style. I really enjoy building relationships with my students and helping them achieve their goals.
In my spare time I am usually found driving around Christchurch with friends but I also enjoy reading, drawing and watching TV and movies.
I look forward to tutoring you.Go Back
