    12 Fun Facts -

    1. I'm a keen fan of pop music.

    4. I'm the first child in my immediate family to go to University.
    5. Maths is my favourite subject.
    6. I'd love to end up teaching someday, but beforehand, I'd like to really challenge myself, and do something really difficult, like actuarial studies.
    7. My favourite food is pasta.
    8. My favourite season is winter. :)

    Your 12 questions.
    1. I haven't got a job as a teacher, but I tutor some students. I started in my final year of high school, and this is now my third year.
    2. My favourite colour is red.
    3. I tend to let the students define the teaching style - If they don't want to learn, and aren't willing to try, then you can't really do much. Positive reinforcement really helps, I've found.
    4.I'd have to say my own, I haven't really had the chance to circulate around blogs. (
    5. My favourite movie (by far) is Lost in Space. I read the book first, absolutely incredible book, then saw the movie. :)
    6. I shop for my tutoring supplies where I can find them, generally at Officeworks and Big W.
    7. The room that I tutor in isn't really themed, but we all encourage each other to help one another out.
    8. Personally, when I'm tutoring a bunch of students, I like to have them bunched in a big circle, so everyone can see everyone else in the group.
    9. Everyone should be able to feel respected and equal to everyone else in the classroom.
    10. I blog to de-stress. I'm also a fan of reading, and the odd bit of writing.
    11. My favourite dessert is icecream, :)
    12. I've been blogging for nearly 3 years, now, but I only started my most recent blog up last month.
