A tutor at an Auckland school has pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting two pupils.
The 18-year-old tutor has had his name and the name of the school permanently suppressed to protect the identities of his victims.
The High Court at Auckland was told yesterday the man supervised students before and after school.
In August 2011 he befriended a 12-year-old boy.
The tutor had sexual connection with the boy, who went along with it because he thought the tutor "could get him into trouble", Crown prosecutor Aaron Perkins said.
He repeated it a few nights later.
The man had similar sexual connection with a 13-year-old boy, though that boy told teachers what had happened.
On other occasions he exposed himself to boys and offered them money to show him their genitals.
Perkins said the man made admissions when confronted by the headmaster after the 13-year-old revealed the offending.
When interviewed by police, the man implied the 13-year-old had instigated the sexual contact.
Justice Timothy Brewer told the man he was making the permanent name suppression "not out of any tenderness for you".
He said it was because the victims' lives would become "untenable" in a school environment if their identities were revealed.
The man was remanded in custody to sentencing on September 18.
