Cindy Chong

University of Auckland

Cindy Chong Cindy completed her undergraduate years at Victoria University of Wellington and participated in an exchange to the National University of Singapore for one semester in her final year. This experience sparked an interest in the different learning and studying environments between NZ and Singapore. Cindy later completed her Honours in Psychology at the University of Auckland where she received First-Class Honours. She has been a private tutor to students in past years as she has a keen interest in individuals’ different learning styles.

Combined with her experience in Singapore, this passion led Cindy to enrolling in a Masters in Developmental Psychology with a particular focus on parents' teaching strategies in a word-learning episode and how this is associated with learning in children. At time of writing (April 2015) she is looking at whether parent’s posture, eye gaze and particular aspects of speech such as certain words and intonation are related to children’s learning.

Cindy enjoys being outdoors on a trampoline or traveling around the world. In the future, she hopes to potentially study cross-cultural differences in teaching strategies and their associated efficacy in learning.
