My name is Max, I finished high school in 2016 and I am presently on my second gap year before hopefully studying at university by the end of 2018. Best suited to tutoring high school and primary school students since I am only just out of secondary education myself. Although I am new to tutoring, I believe in the practical application of skills such as languages from an early stage in learning, building confidence by breaking it down to the basics and becoming comfortable with using it. In addition, tailoring to individual learning preferences is something I will look to try and achieve for all students to improve the quality of their learning.
I am new to providing lessons so my experience of one-on-one tutoring is very limited, particularly in an academic setting. However, I volunteered in French classes during my time at high school, offering support and assistance to the teacher in lessons for younger year groups. In addition, I have helped to coach one of the youth teams at my local rugby club over the last few months, improving their basic skills and building their confidence, and have been called upon to assist with the teaching of certain skills by other coaches in the past.

My name is Max Hadoke and as of June 2016 I completed my final exams at Balwearie High School, Kirkcaldy. Following my departure from school I held two jobs with the intention of travelling after Christmas of 2016 for six months to New Zealand. Before arriving in January I spent two weeks in Vietnam with my friend to get a flavour of the country. Over the 4 month period I was there we travelled the south island by car and bus, organised and walked two treks and spent time with families on farms and campsites. Once in the north island I stopped to play rugby and work and played 7 seven matches for Oriental Rongotai before heading north via New Plymouth, Waitomo and Auckland. Due to my ambition to become a doctor I also spent a day shadowing in a hospice in New Plymouth to try and improve my knowledge of medical practices outside Britain. I returned home in june2017 and have worked in the bakery on a part-time basis since.
Previously, I raised money towards a World Challenge Expedition to Bolivia in June 2014 which involved 18 months of fundraising to cover the expedition cost (~£3800). I organised two fundraising events (a curry night and a quiz night), helped organise a beetle drive, worked as a garden labourer for my neighbour and completed a sponsored run (15km in 1 hour 20 minutes). Whilst in Bolivia, the team painted the school buildings in a rural community on Lake Titicaca, completed a 3 day acclimatisation trek of about 60 km and scaled a 5300m mountain (Pico Austria). I was also unofficial translator during our time in the country as I had taught myself a reasonable amount of Spanish before leaving and was able to converse effectively. This was a very rewarding experience and taught me teamwork and understanding of other people.
Since I was six I have been a member of Kirkcaldy Rugby Club and I have attended regional trials on several occasions. I am presently coaching the under 18s team and attend training regularly for the first team squad. Before I left Scotland our team won the league after losing just two matches. I was a member of Scottish Touch under 18s mixed team and attended two Junior Touch European Championships in the two years of my involvement with the squad. Following a fifth place finish in Nottingham 2016 the team finished 2nd in a close final with Wales in the 2017 Championship in Arnhem. I was a “train-on” with the senior mixed Scotland squad and attended training sessions throughout the country. Although halted from attending by injury I was invited to senior trials after the 2017 JTC. Work commitments also prevented me from continuing playing touch with my club in Edinburgh – Superhands. Communication and organisation is a very big part of touch and rugby, with both sports giving me the opportunity to learn communication skills and gain confidence.
Until 2016 I had been a member of the scout organisation for over ten years and have learned some valuable skills, such as the ability to orienteer, hike and provide first aid. During my time in the scouts I was a young leader with my scout section, the 11th Fife 1st Burntisland, and accompanied them on a camp to Kielder Lake. I have also camped in Norfolk and Holland with the scouts at two international camps. The Scouts has been a very important and rewarding part of my life for a long time and I have enjoyed learning from my experiences in it and my very good leaders.
