1. What do you love most about tutoring?
I like being able to give students personalised guidance so that they can unlock their potential and exceed their own expectations so they can stress a lot less about marks than I did. I’ve also really enjoyed the connections I’ve made with students, who even with their busy high school schedules lead exciting lives and have their own philosophies, all of which are very interesting to listen to.
2. If you could tell your high school self one piece of advice what would it be?
Probably to stress a little bit less about marks and engage with the non-academic side of high school more, and ultimately, to find more things I can enjoy to take part in.
3. What do you love about Stepping Stones Education so far?
The staff here at Stepping Stones are all genuinely dedicated to the betterment of students, which has clearly developed a culture of achievement, helpfulness, and a beneficial student-teacher closeness.
The students are also all enthusiastic, unique, fully appreciate the opportunity they have to receive tutoring at Stepping Stones and are very fun to be around. Also, the staff here are all kind, exciting, and all more experienced than I am, so I’m always challenged to do and learn more and to practice what It means to function in a professional work space.

Have you ever heard of International Men’s day? It’s on the 19th of November, and it’s one of the many days we have to celebrate diversity and to confront social issues, particularly among men! This day is an opportunity for us to talk about the stereotypes that create toxic masculinity and recognise that men are in fact diverse and do not need to fill a particular ‘role’ in society.
