Hello, my name is George and this is my first year tutoring for AHeadStart. I am a third year Engineering student at the University of Canterbury, studying Mechatronics. During my time at Cashmere High School I achieved overall Excellence (Level 1 and Level 2) and Merit endorsements (Level 3). I was a well-rounded student, earning Level 3 merit endorsements in Calculus, English & Physics, Level 2 Excellence endorsements in Accounting & Physics and Level 2 Merit endorsements in Chemistry, English and Mathematics.
While at high school I played cricket, rugby, basketball and a range of other sports while also working a part time job. This helped me to learn the importance of managing my time across all my commitments to ensure I achieved everything I wanted to during this period. It also made me realise that to do well academically I needed to apply the skills I was learning outside of school, for example from captaining my rugby team and working with others at my job. Through seeing the bigger picture I was able to maintain perspective in what can be a challenging time for students and I believe this will be of benefit in my tutoring.
I am able to tutor a range of Science and Maths based subjects, as well as English and Accounting. I am excited to begin tutoring for AHeadStart and can’t wait to meet you.Go Back
