My teaching experience, both at school or online is extensive. I have had other jobs like driver tester, Professional photographer,managed motels, driven buses to name a few. I am experienced with the wood / metal trades as well as Graphics DVC, laser cutting,CAD, Word processing just to name a few. I see myself as a coach or facilitator to get you over the line with marketable skills. Whanau involvement is encouraged. I like to see the funny side of life and know that there is always a solution for any problem. Life is about problem solving and decision making based upon research and making good choices. I believe that the more essential skills you have the greater you are "Pandemic Proof", employable and more content within yourself. Stay positive with me; Damer Farrell
