About

**Offering online sessions via Zoom :) ** Hey I'm Monique and I've been tutoring for 5 years in primary & high school subjects including maths, english, science (including human bio, chem and physics) and humanities. I have tutored over thirty students over the past 5 years ranging from year four to year twelve. I have a Masters of Science Communication from UWA and am now a tutor at UWA and recently received a nomination for a 2019 Faculty Teaching & Service Award in the category of Outstanding Contribution to Student Learning.

Please check my updated availability** and get in contact if you would like a session time that works for you. During the sessions I take an individualised approach by covering school curriculum textbooks as well as other work which compliments what is being taught in their classes. I liaise with their teachers, provide personalised schedules and work sheets. I tailor my tutoring to the student's needs and take a flexible approach to self-paced, individual learning. I focus on giving positive awareness of their strengths and targeting their areas for improvement. For me tutoring isn't just about achieving great marks, it's also about helping students feel confident in their own abilities as well as encouraging them to enjoy learning.

I previously finished honours research in breast cancer research and before that my degree in pathology and laboratory medicine with science communication which covers biology, human biology, chemistry, mathematics and how to write/present science topics. I also studied a few units in French, Psychology and Philosophy. In high school I studied Mathematics (3AB/applications), Chemistry, English, Food Science and Technology, Drama and have a Cert II in Hospitality. I also studied Human Biology in year 11.

For the past year I have also been a nanny for primary school children, helping them with school work and projects. I have recently completed two Science Communication internships at the Perron Institute and the Marshall Centre as well as undertaking a research assistant role for the Hartmann Human Lactation Group. Through these work experiences I have gained excellent written skills - including the ability to write essays, research summaries, newsletter articles, media releases and social media posts. Furthermore from I was a Sciguide and Girls in STEM Helper at Scitech in which I helped children and staff with the activities at Scitech and demonstrated the use of STEM concepts.
