Tutor Profile

Our tutors are educational professionals dedicated to providing our students with the very best support to achieve their academic goals.

In this issue we profile Asha who is a Maths and English tutor.

What made you take up teaching?

I had been working as a Policy Officer in the Public Service when my children were young. I saw that some teachers in their primary school were not comfortable with teaching many of the concepts in Maths and Science. I decided that instead of complaining about it I would take action. I completed a postgraduate degree in Primary Teaching from the University of Canberra. I thoroughly enjoy teaching and tutoring especially when I get the “Aha” moments from students who had previously not understood a concept.

Does being a CAMI tutor give you the same feeling?

Absolutely! When looking through students’ reports I am very pleased when I see a student has made the effort to persist in order to build their confidence on a topic. Often a student has rung for tutor support and I have explained the concept that they are having trouble with and they say “Now I get it!” It is very satisfying.

What are your other interests?

I am very interested in Celtic prehistory and culture and I have started to learn Irish Gaelic. It has the most interesting phonics and for someone who is used to the English rules of pronunciation I am finding this a real challenge. If anyone has trouble spelling or pronouncing ‘ough’ words they can thank the Celtic origins of these words.
