I tailor my teaching methods to each student as much as possible, working with their individual learning styles. I generally prefer to use work given by teachers relevant to the week’s topic so I may answer any questions the student might have on the class work. However, with the impending shut down of schools due to the coronavirus pandemic, I am happy to provide students with work in line with their curriculum if their regular teacher has not provided any learning materials. I will be conducting online lessons through the program Zoom, as it allows for both visual and audible instruction/engagement. Parents may wish to be present or close by during these lessons to keep track of and better understand their child's home learning, and I am happy to facilitate this if requested.
I am currently a Law/Social Science student at UON majoring in Politics and International Relations. I tutor in Maths as I remained in my year’s top math class throughout high school. I have been privately tutoring students in Maths for 3 years, and currently have 4 students between Year 4 and 10. One student has raised her grade average from a low C to a B within the last 5 weeks of Term 4 2019 under my tutelage, and another has moved up an entire class from Year 9 to 10. My Year 5 student was recently given an award for having a positive attitude towards challenging Maths problems. I look forward to witnessing and assisting in the successes and improvement of my students again this year.
The first lesson will primarily consist of discussion on how work will be presented, what my expectations are of the student and vice versa, and familiarising the student (and parent if necessary) with Zoom. This time will also be used to figure out the student's learning style so I can adapt my teaching methods to best suit this, and to assess the student's current skill level. I try to do this in a fun and friendly way to start building rapport with the student.
We have been very fortunate to have Olivia come and tutor my daughter in maths. Olivia explains maths in a way that my daughter understands and makes it easy as well as fun. Tutoring with my daughter the past 12 months, my daughter has improved in such an impressive way that she moved up a maths class, all with Olivia’s encouragement and support. I can’t recommend Olivia enough, she’s certainly amazing.
Olivia has been fabulous with our 13 year old daughter. She has been assisting with maths since the end of October and the improvement has been amazing. My daughter's maths grade following such a short amount of tutoring has really surprised us, she went from a low C to a B. We look forward to 2020 and know that our daughter will continue to improve with Olivia’s help. Olivia is very organised and trustworthy, she is always on time. We would highly recommend Olivia to anyone needing tutoring for their child.
