Hi, I'm Cherry.
I offer tutoring in the following areas:
English: I tutor English as a second language for beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. I can teach students of all ages. My emphasis is on on conversational/informal English, however I am also open to teaching formal English.
I have a home tutoring qualification from English Language Partners, and have experience tutoring adult students in NZ, and teaching both adults and children short term overseas. I lived overseas for a couple of years as a teenager, so I know what it is like to live in a foreign place and try to learn another language. I usually connect well with my students, and enjoy getting to know them and their culture as well as sharing mine.
I am also able to look at school and academic papers, business letters, CVs etc. to check for English and grammar mistakes. Fees will be considered case by case and depend on the word count and level of English required.
My experience in this area includes helping a friend with a linguistics paper which she published, and later also with her doctorate.
Maths: I also am available to help younger students with primary level maths, including homework help. I like to use manipulatives to keep things as concrete as possible, so kids understand how and why maths works, before asking them to solve abstract problems.
Reading/Literacy: I am available to help students of all ages with basic literacy, including reading help for school age students.
Other: I may be open to helping with other school subjects also, especially for primary and intermediate age students. Contact me to inquire.
As a full-time mother I would prefer to host you at my house, but I may be open to other arrangements on a case by case basis, so please contact me to check. Adult male students are restricted to times when my husband is also home, or meeting in a public venue. Students are welcome to bring children with them, providing they are respectful of my home and family.
We live five minutes south from Mosgiel, and about 25 minutes from Dunedin.
