Bess (Psychology Tutor)

Bess came to us after studying at the Auckland University of Technology. Now, she helps The Career Academy’s students get the most out of their Psychology courses. Nothing is more rewarding for Bess than when she sees students getting excited about their course, and finds tutoring is a great way to get insights into the lives of her students.

Bess is thinking about extending her tutoring experience and going back to study to become a primary school teacher, where she’d trade her students for ones who are a little younger.

Outside of psychology, Bess spends her free time at the gym, getting stuck-in with classes that get the rest of The Career Academy office sweating from just thinking about.
