Cara A

Auckland Tutor

This is Cara’s fourth year as an academic tutor for Inspiration Education, having been a youth worker and teacher aide beforehand. Although she grew up in Auckland, Cara has been living in Wellington while studying psychology, anthropology and Maori at Victoria University of Wellington. However, she has returned to Auckland for the year to revisit her roots!

Cara is super passionate about empowering youth to feel confident in their studies as well as their general school lives, and loves not only growing students’ content knowledge but also using content as a tool to teach students broader, more long-term life skills. Being a psychology student she finds thinking and learning strategies fascinating, and works hard with her students to help them to understand how their thinking minds work and how to use their thinking patterns to their best advantage.

In her spare time, Cara likes to colour in her mindfulness colouring book, play the piano, practice yoga, and watch chick flicks and rom coms! She is passionate about decolonisation, empowering women, and mental health support.
