Tutoring near Charlestown NSW & Surry Hills, Sydney, NSW


Degree qualified online educator~ 10 years experience ~ Free 30 min trial lesson ~ Full term from $160 ~

My name is Zakary Nicholls and I am a private mathematics tutor with a decade of experience in education and training.

I currently offer online tutoring for students all across Australia in K-12 mathematics, and 7-12 economics. I offer 30 minute ($160 full term) and 60 minute ($320 full term) term based lessons. My term runs for 8 weeks from week 2 to week 9. I provide all resources required for lessons, including textbook materials, weekly homework with solutions, and hand written notes. I use a wide mix of resources including Primary, High, and University textbooks, combined with auxiliary notes, designed to challenge students and help them improve their performance regardless of their current ability. I offer online lessons Monday through to Saturday. Lessons run via Skype.

I typically teach a fairly large number of students each term, and will typically have a small number of lesson slots available on each day, if you would like to arrange lessons please send me a message including the following details: the student’s year and subject, the state or territory in which you live, which days of the week you would be interested in tutoring, and your email address, and I’ll be in touch via email with any suitable availabilities as soon as possible.

My academic background is primarily in quantitative science: As an undergraduate, I studied economics and finance at the University of Newcastle, and science and mathematics at Charles Sturt University. As a graduate, I am studying physics and astronomy at the University of Southern Queensland. I am very passionate about academia, and it brings me great pride and happiness to have a career built around helping people achieve their best. I have privately tutored hundreds of economics, finance, mathematics, and science students over the years in K-12, as well as 1st and 2nd year university, and my academic qualifications are compliant with the NESA teaching area subject content knowledge requirements for primary and secondary teaching in the areas of economics, mathematics, and science.
