What do I offer?

I offer both face to face and online lessons in private or small group settings and am willing to travel to places nearby (<15 minutes drive) from Chatswood or Concord. I primarily specialise in teaching Mathematics (all levels up to Extension 2), Economics and Physics, however can offer help in other subjects I have experience in.

******************************

Teaching Methodology:

Throughout high school, I pretty much enjoyed every subject I took. I love the logic and problem solving involved in mathematics, the incredible real world applications of science to explain phenomena beyond our comprehension, and looking at how different authors and historical figures shaped our modern society. I chose to become a tutor because I want to be able to instill this passion in all my students so that our weekly lessons are not a chore but rather something we look forward to!


I don't want to be the type of tutor that does the absolute bare minimum. My services include

⭐Provide personalised and structured lessons and homework suiting your workload

⭐Provide free university and medical admissions guidance

⭐Squeeze in extra lessons near exams

⭐Give you access to my notes and exam papers as well as my collection from other schools

⭐Teaching you HOW TO STUDY and the most efficient methods that have worked for me

⭐Helping you balance study with extracurriculars

⭐Review ALL of your questions and short answer responses and ask me questions WHENEVER YOU LIKE

Particularly for Mathematics and Science, my teaching methods are example based. I believe that understanding content is best conducted when applied to typical questions and far more effective than memorizing formulas or generic steps to solving a question.

✔️ Reviews

I was never very comfortable with Mathematics or English before beginning lessons with Leo. However through his guidance I can safely say I walked into the HSC more confident than ever before, gaining a mark I was very proud of. I can't thank him or recommend him highly enough to anyone else.
