BEYOND MATH, IT'S ABOUT HELPING STUDENTS SEE HOW BRILLIANT, ACCOMPLISHED AND SELF CONFIDENT THEY CAN BE!
With great passion for Mathematics and Education, and coming from a family of Engineers and Teachers, I combine the best of both worlds to provide the best explanations, strategies and overall educational support. The objective with all my students is to help them progress rapidly and improve their results consistently; increases of 20-30% within 2 weeks of starting lessons are not uncommon among them. *Each of my students' outcomes is MY OWN TOP PRIORITY*. With over 9 years of experience and over 300 1-on-1 past students, I am very confident with different attitudes and learning styles, and not only explain the topics in a fully comprehensible, tried-and-tested step-by-step way, but make sure discipline, focus, self-assurance and work ethic improve as well.
*ACHIEVING EXCELLENCE IS WITHIN THE REACH OF EVERY STUDENT*
My approach goes well beyond tutoring, I coach and mentor my students paying close attention to all aspects of their education and personal growth (study material, motivation, habits) so they become consistently more accomplishment-minded. Beyond subject content, thorough assessment and constructive feedback of study and personal habits are provided continuously, lesson by lesson, with strong emphasis on discipline, focus, hard work and self confidence, so they become better, more fulfilled and successful in Math *and their other subjects too*, a decisive factor particularly in years 11 and 12.
Furthermore, I do understand the economic and time investment involved, and offer a completely personalised study plan tailored to the student's needs. Regular 2 hs/week of lessons results in at least a consistent B plus, and in most instances A. Having lived, studied and worked in three continents (North and South America, Europe and Australia), work experience in telecom and mining companies and postgraduate studies in the UK and USA allow me to offer a more well-rounded educational experience.
*****Highlights of my work*****
Personal commitment to unlocking my students' potential. I greatly value your trust and make sure both students and parents are very happy with the outcomes.
Time & stress management; study, goal setting and test/exam taking skills are evaluated from the start. *This is key in promoting improvement in Math and all other subjects*
As I teach intensively on a daily basis (I work with 25-50+ students weekly year round) I know the most commonly tested questions and make sure to prioritise them.
All questions are always welcomed and all students are treated with great encouragement, high expectation, attention and respect.
Students are continuously encouraged to achieve higher proficiency levels, we move swiftly onto more advanced material as soon as they seem confident. Fast, steady improvements are not uncommon among my students.
Together with understanding the principles and academic improvement, special emphasis on confidence, enjoying the discovery and learning process, and realising how simple yet very beautiful and rewarding Math can be!
*WE ARE ALL MUCH MORE CAPABLE AND STRONGER THAN WHAT WE MAY THINK WE ARE*
Year by year my students have successfully gained admission to / graduated from ANU, the University of Adelaide, UniSA, Flinders University, University of Melbourne, Monash University, University of Sydney, UNSW, University of Technology Sydney, University of Queensland, University of Western Australia, Australian Defence Force Academy. A substantial number of them enter highly competitive and demanding programs in Medicine, Dentistry, Physiotherapy, Optometry, Medical Imaging, Biotechnology, Veterinary Science, Law, Architecture, Civil / Aeronautical / Electrical / Mechanical / Chemical / Biomedical Engineering, Information Technology, Computer Science, Accounting, Business/Commerce, Finance, Economics, among others.

This review is to commend the work of Andrew, who was my methods tutor in 2019. Thanks to his expert, dedicated guidance I reached my goal and finished Mathematical Methods on an A, and in regards to my ATAR got a score of 99.35, which granted me admissions for all of my preferences which included University of Adelaide and UNSW, as well as a substantial Defence University Sponsorship! I was very happy with my achievements, which were to an important degree thanks to him. I am very grateful for the work and effort he put in to teaching me and help me improve substantially in this subject, key to my engineering admissions. I owe him so much for helping me reach my potential! Thank you so much Andrew! Thank you so much for being not only my tutor but a mentor over the course of my last high school year, all your teachings are greatly appreciated!

Andrew very successfully tutored my year 2 daughter in maths that was over two years ahead of the curriculum. My daughter was able to complete exercises in long multiplication and division, fractions, percentages, algebra, equations that was comparable to years 4 and 5 maths level. Andrew also impressed us with his professionalism and was always very approachable and easy to communicate with. He provided us with regular updates of her progress and plenty of weekly homework. We wholeheartedly recommend his maths tutoring services, we had been looking for a maths tutor for a while and were very glad to find someone who does concentrate on this subject and was so thorough and accomplished, it worked very well for us!

Mr Andrew is a fantastic tutor. He guided me to improve in year 12 Methods more than 30%, this helped me reach the 92 ATAR band and secure admission to the Bachelor of Human Sciences at UWA. Last year I just moved to Australia and was finding a lot of the content not easy and my results were very worrying as I needed a high ATAR, fortunately Mr Andrew was very patient and explained everything clearly. He also followed up from time to time and was available every time I needed extra support during the rest of the week. Mr Andrew made my transition to Australia and to university studies much easier. It's be great having you as teacher, Mr Andrew, thank you!

Hi Andrew, I've been well and hope the same on your end. I received a 96.7 ATAR and improved over 30% in Methods, which all granted me admissions to the bachelor of health and medicine (advanced) from the University of Adelaide. Thank you for all the lessons last year and for the extra help, it all help me so much. Thank you for all the advice and the time you've put into ensuring I get into my desired career choice, now I'm on my way to becoming a doctor :) Best wishes, Sudarshan

Update: Robbie is now in year 11 getting straight As in Math Methods, he's much more focused and confident in his capabilities, a complete change since less than two years ago. We are very fortunate for having Andrew as his tutor and do commend him highly.
All what I can say is thank you Andrew for your exceptional work with my son this year. I have to admit I was a bit skeptical in the beginning, as he had never been happy doing Math, let alone get good grades in this subject in his first 8 school years. In a matter of a few lessons, Andrew helped Robbie be convinced that Math could be understood and enjoyed, and finally mastered. Andrew has helped him increase his marks from nearly failing to 80%s and 90%s in two terms, his confidence is also much, much better than before. I couldn't believe Robbie was doing Andrew's homework by himself from the first lesson!! We are all very happy at home with this outcome.
Andrew is very patient, it is also evident he has a great deal of experience, and he does his best to make Math as easy and pleasant as possible. My most sincere recommendation of Andrew's tutoring services to all parents and students.
