She hopes to pursue a career centered around health economics.
Emma strongly believes in a holistic approach to education, where she recognises the importance and influence of multiple factors that contribute towards a student’s learning journey. The ability to create positive change and make a tangible difference in the education of others is a key aspect that draws Emma to tutoring. Emma is committed to helping her students achieve their goals, so she makes an effort to listen to her students and amplify their voice in the learning process. As well as working through content in her lessons, Emma gives advice about studying approaches and time-management tips that she has gleaned through experience.
Outside of her studies, Emma enjoys playing tennis, running and cooking. She recognises the importance of pursuing a balanced lifestyle and encourages self-reflection and resilience within her approach to tutoring. Emma undertook the IB Diploma in her final two years of school and completed NCEA Level 1 in Year 11, so she understands both pathways.
