Tracie Tepania - Community Computer Coach

Tracie Tepania - Business Administration

Community Computer Coach, NorthTec Kaitaia

“I have so much more confidence and belief in myself since starting part-time work as a Community Computer Coach at Kaitaia NorthTec campus. I’ve discovered that I really like teaching. I love the excitement on the students’ faces when they get an ahh-hah moment. I’ve been there just recently myself, so I can really relate.”

“I studied Computers and Admin for Small Business at NorthTec starting from level 2 and completing level 4 at the end of 2017. I loved being with the other students, and the tutors went above and beyond to help us. I found the course content interesting and the open-book assessments made getting good grades easy.”

“I’ve done two more courses since then – one in Small Business Management at NorthTec, and a Certificate in Money Management at Te Wananga in Kaitaia. I’m keen to do more teaching and at this stage am exploring what that might be.”
