BrookPalmerston North Tutor
Brooke is in her third year at Massey University, currently studying towards a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in English and History. Brooke is passionate about the challenges and critical thinking required in these subjects, as well as the way in which they have shaped the world we live in today.
Brooke is able to tutor English to Scholarship level, and History and Classical Studies to Level Three. She can also tutor Mathematics to Level One. Brooke loves the opportunity to tutor students one-on-one as it enables her to provide a more personal form of education, where a student can receive the attention that they may not get in the classroom. Brooke enjoys finding out student’s strengths, as well as areas of their learning that they are less confident in. With regular sessions, Brooke loves to see the improvement in the student’s abilities in not just the specific subject, but their complete education.
Brooke likes to break down subjects into smaller sections and uses a variation of strategies so the student can connect these to the subject as a whole. She also uses practice questions and previous exams to build upon the student’s knowledge. Brooke believes in the understanding of the basics of a subject before tackling the more complicated concepts, and feels rewarded when students can understand and make these connections on their own.
