Mina is in his third-year studying medicine at the University of Auckland is originally from the North Shore. Mina love’s what he studies as he says it’s super interesting to learn about the body and how to tackle all the different problems that can go wrong with it. He is a friendly and approachable person who loves meeting new people and has a pretty outgoing sense of humour!
Mina can tutor science, chemistry and biology. He is an advocate for learning through understanding so that minimal memorization is required and will push all of his students to try and understand the content. While content is very important to Mina, he recognizes that there are other important elements to doing well, such as exam technique, time management etc., and tries to approach tutoring all students in a more holistic manner. Mina knows that not all students learn the same way and through his experience, has developed different teaching techniques to try and combat this.
In summer, Mina’s favourite thing to do is go for a swim on the beach or have a lazy day on the sand. During winter, he can be found mainly playing sport such as football or basketball. Mina is excited to be tutoring for Inspiration Education and can’t wait to meet his new students!
