I am a mathematics and science tutor with over 8 years of teaching experience ranging from one to one teaching of primary school students all the way up to university lecturing and doctoral candidate supervision. I am also a research scientist with a doctorate in experimental nuclear physics and a first class degree in theoretical physics.
In general my rates are:
$50/hr for HSC extension level subjects
$40/hr for one on one tutoring for years 10-12
$35/hr for one on one tutoring for years 7-9
$30/hr for one on one tutoring for years 1-6
$30/hr PER student for group sessions
There are discounts for multiple sessions per week when available.
Now for a little more detail! My name is Stuart, I'm 29 years old and I am a scientific researcher in physics, specializing in experimental nuclear physics and medical physics. I completed my Doctoral degree in 2017 at the University of Manchester in the UK. Upon completion of my doctoral degree, I moved to Finland where I was employed as a postdoctoral researcher in the nuclear spectroscopy group at the University of Jyväskylä.
During the course of my academic career I have been fortunate to travel the world and work at a number of laboratories spanning 4 continents. In addition to my research, I have significant experience teaching a wide range of students, ranging from early primary school students to postgraduate students working towards their doctoral degrees.
My general approach to tutoring is to find the method that best suits each individual. In many instances, helping a student find the best way of learning for them is the first step to seeing them flourish. I am genuinely passionate about the subjects I teach and I strive to relay this to my students. I have a huge collection of personal notes for topics and mountains of practice problems and exam style questions that students often find extremely helpful, ensuring that every student is fully prepared come assessment day.
Generally I prefer home visits or tutoring at a neutral location such as at the university library, but I am also able to tutor students at my home if that is preferable. I am also available to offer remote services such as proof reading, assistance in creation of study aids and video conferencing for presentations at an additional cost.
I generally like to meet for an introductory session (typically half an hour or so) where we can meet and discuss preferred methods and learning objectives and see if it is a good fit moving forwards. Choosing the right tutor is equally as important in making the decision to get tutoring in the first place.
I offer set hours week, however extra sessions may be requested at particularly busy periods when deadlines approach or during exam season. I always try to accommodate the needs of each individual student.
Please feel free to get in touch if you have any further questions or would like to arrange a meeting.

I prefer to do home visits so I am happy to travel to you as long as it is within a reasonable distance. I can also accommodate students at my own house if that is preferable.
