My name is Kate. I am from Ngāpuhi but spent most of my childhood in Auckland. I learned te reo Māori as a second languague whilst at university. Notably, I have a Diploma in Māori Language Fluency from Te Wānanga Takiura and a Diploma in Te Pīnakitanga ki te Reo Kairangi. As I learned te reo Māori as a second language I am all too familiar with the whakamā (shame, embarrassment) and challenges that come with learning Māori. All the feelings, apprehension, nerves, excitedness you feel, I have been there too.
Me as a Teacher
For the past three years, I've tutored te reo Māori for individuals and small groups (7-10), alongside seven years of tutoring for the University of Auckland's medical school. This dual experience has honed my teaching strategies, and I'm passionate about creating personalised and effective ways for students to learn te reo Māori.
My lessons & teaching style
I aim to avoid overwhelming students, having experienced firsthand how fast-paced lessons can make the learning environment intimidating. My approach is to tailor lessons to each student's needs and pace, prioritising your needs; to make the learning experience more enjoyable.
