AHeadStart tutors are high achievers, excellent communicators and passionate about learning.
Most of all they are keen to share their knowledge!
Every AHeadStart tutor has personal experience of the New Zealand education system, both at secondary school level, including NCEA, Cambridge and IB, as well as at tertiary level. Most of our tutors are current university students, so are actively learning and excelling in the subjects they tutor.
Our team of Christchurch tutors know that it takes passion, dedication and hard work to achieve success in education. They are also aware of the most successful and efficient ways to study. Many of our tutors were Dux or Proxime Accessit of their secondary school, or involved in leadership positions such as Head Boy or Head Girl.
Our tutors are selected via a thorough interview process. Tutors are chosen based on their previous tutoring experience, their record of achievement in NCEA and their tertiary studies, their current knowledge of the curriculum, as well as their ability and passion for sharing their knowledge with students of all ages.
All of our Christchurch tutors are screened by the NZ Police prior to being placed with students.
We are also following the government's guidelines on vaccinations for those in the education sector, with all tutors providing evidence of one or both doses before 15 November, 2021. https://covid19.govt.nz/alert-levels-and-updates/latest-updates/mandatory-vaccination-for-two-workforces
