Hi there! I'm Jacob and I've been tutoring with AHeadStart for two years now. My subjects are Accounting, Economics, Math and English. I am a fourth year student at the University of Canterbury studying a conjoint of Law and Commerce, majoring in Accounting and Finance.
My interest in tutoring stems from a passion for engaging with students and finding out the way that they learn best. When with students I am friendly, patient, and give the student all of the help and resources that he/she needs in order to succeed. If a student is having difficulties understanding the content taught by their teacher, I am great at finding another way to approach the problem so that it clicks for the student. Having completed NCEA not too long ago, I can help you break down exactly what is required to reach your desired grade.
While at Christchurch Boys' High School, I became very familiar with what it takes to excel at NCEA. In NCEA level 3, I gained Excellence for 100% of internal assessments, overall Excellence endorsement, and Excellence subject endorsements for 4 of my 5 subjects. These grades helped me gain UC Bright Spark scholarship & the UC double Excellence scholarship.
In my own time, I'm an avid football player who enjoys fooling around at the gym and hanging out with my flatmates.
