Meet The Team

Sharon

(Owner/Teacher)

I absolutely love spending time with our amazing students each week, building learning confidence within a fun, supportive and structured programme.

After nearly 20 years of classroom teaching, I am extremely excited that I have the opportunity to work with students 1:1 as they achieve their learning goals and develop their learning confidence. Working with students who require that little extra care has always been a passion of mine and the reason I chose teaching as a career.

Confidence is the key to success and enables students to take risks without the fear of failure or judgement. I am very proud to say that at Back2Basics Tuition we do everything within our power to make each and every lesson a time to celebrate the awesome young learners our Treasure Pops are!

I am grateful for our wonderful students, parents, teachers, tutors, venues and the fact that I actually have my job!!!

Helen

(Teacher)

Hi, my name is Helen Hughes and it is a pleasure to work with Sharon and the other educators at Back2Basics Tuition.

I have been teaching for 8 years and I love working with all age groups. Prior to teaching, I was a teacher aide. In that role I had the luxury of working 1:1 with children and I experienced the many benefits this situation provides for learning. As a classroom teacher I really missed that 1:1 time with students and being able to provide truly individualised plans.

So imagine how excited I am to be teaching math and literacy with our students of differing ages and abilities, knowing that their teacher led lessons are 1:1 and tailored to their own individual needs and goals.

I look forward to seeing our students every week and love their enthusiasm to learn. I am delighted to part be of their learning journey.

Alyx

(Tutor)

Hi, my name is Alyx. I have been working as a tutor for Back2Basics Tuition for 2 years now and absolutely love every moment. Because I have recently completed NCEA Level 3, I have a very good understanding of what our high school students require to succeed in years 9,10,11,12 and 13.

I work at our Chartwell venue and help out when required at other venues as well. The students that I work with are amazing and with my help soon realise that they are very capable learners. When working with our high school students we adapt our programme to meet their current school learning, upcoming tests, learning gaps and homework. We are here to help meet individual student needs and I believe that we do that very well.

My favourite math area to teach is Algebra because students often think it is extremely difficult to understand until I show them that not only can they easily learn to understand Algebra but they can have a lot of fun doing so.

I can't wait to catch up with our returning students and meet our new enrolments for 2022.

Jess

(Tutor)

Hi, I am Jess and I'm currently studying Para-Medicine at AUT. I play waterpolo, volleyball and also enjoy drama/acting.

My role at Back2Basics Tuition involves working with online students to cement the learning they have been introduced to by their teachers. We do this through a variety of fun games and challenges via Zoom.

I love working with young students and helping them with their learning. Their amazing, vibrant personalities brighten my days and I always look forward to the afternoons that I work at Back2Basics Tuition.
