About

Experienced and Qualified Educator

*** Monday/Tuesday fully booked, Wednesday/Thursday/Friday limited availabilities ***

My name is Zakary Nicholls and I am the Principal and Founder of private education firm ZJNT Education. I have privately tutored over four hundred individual students over the last decade and have an outstanding record of student achievement and development. I am a very popular tutor, I typically teach over a thousand one-on-one lesson hours each year.

My lessons are focused on learning and understanding of core concepts within each subject, this structure of lesson is best suited for students who are genuinely struggling with the content. My goal is to ensure that every student I teach can build a good understanding of the fundamentals of the subject in order to learn proper academic work ethic, build self confidence, improve grades, and to develop career enhancing skills and abilities.

One such student was a high performing HSC student, she was scoring about 70-80% in all of her HSC subject (with Advanced Mathematics being the exception, where her early year 11 average in math was about 40%, as with many students English was her strength and math was her weakness). I taught her for 2 years up until the HSC exam, she received a final mark of 79% for Advanced Mathematics. She was accepted into her first university choice a Bachelor of Speech Pathology at Newcastle.

One other student was a young man interested in getting an electrical or civil trade, he received a year 7 final mark in mathematics of around 30%. After one year of tutoring his performance had improved substantially, he received around 50% at the end of year 8. I continued to tutor him until his final exams in year 10, he continued to perform well and he received a final mark in Mathematics 5.2 of about 65% (which was one of the highest marks in his class). At the end of year 10, he had applied for both an electrical trade and a civil trade and was offered both.

These are two of the hundreds of different students I have assisted, I take great pride in seeing these young people achieve such fantastic improvements, I understand that many students are different in goals and aptitudes and it is my goal to have all students achieve improvements which align with their goals.
