LeahPalmerston North Tutor
Leah is currently studying towards a Bachelor of Science majoring in Psychology at Massey University. She has studied a wide variety of subjects whilst at university, from astronomy and chemistry to development and political studies. She received Dux Litterarum as well as Top of Mathematics in 2013.
Leah is able to tutor Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics with Statistics up to level 3, and general Mathematics up to level 2. Leah is passionate about helping people and the chance to draw out potential in a student makes tutoring a good fit for her. She believes that everyone has the ability to excel and that sometimes it just requires someone getting alongside a student and investing the time to see results. She believes that learning is important in every aspect of life and that in order to make a difference in the world, you first must understand how the world works. She enjoys finding a student’s passions and figuring out ways to show how it links to the concepts they are struggling with.
Leah realises that everyone learns differently and likes to tailor her tutoring to the needs and learning style of the student. She emphasises the journey taken to reach a solution and understanding not just what steps to take, but why those steps are being taken. She likes to break the concept down to the fundamentals and build up from there, making sure the foundations of the concept are solid before things get more complex. Leah is eager to see student’s master concepts that they once found overwhelming, and in turn see them grow in the faith they have in their own abilities.
