Meet the Online Tutor: Aric T

Online Tutoring Aric T

This week we’re talking to Aric T, a Kiwi native who tutors across maths, science and computer programming. When he’s not tutoring, he works as an electrical engineer and support the All Blacks. He’s also got 4 years tutoring experience under his belt, so you can be confident he knows his stuff.

TB: How did you get into tutoring? What motivated you?

AT: When I was studying I was always helping my friends and other people in class with their own studies. It was a great experience, and naturally led me down the path to do it as a job.

TB: You tutor maths and science. What fascinates you about the subject areas?

AT:  I am an engineer by trade so I see the real application of both maths and science every day. It’s good to know why I am learning something, and how I could apply it to solving problems in the future.

TB: What do you think makes you a great tutor?

AT: The numerous ways I can explain things, while being young enough that I can still remember when I learnt the subject matter. This allows me to have empathy with my students and enables me to explain concepts better.
