Tutoring near Caulfield South, Melbourne, VIC


About

**Available for both online and in-person tutoring**

Hi, I'm Michael, but everyone calls me Mitch. I graduated in 2018 with an ATAR of 98.95. Subsequently, I've been tutoring Methods, Specialist, Chemistry and Physics for over a year and a half. I'm currently studying a Bachelor of Science - Global Challenges at Monash with a major in Geographical Science and a minor in Maths and Atmospheric Science (more maths).

My tutoring strategy is to understand the basics and utilise that understanding to tackle exam-style questions as early as possible. My aim as a tutor is to teach the way of thinking, how to break down a daunting, complicated problem into smaller, solvable parts. Through my own experience, I've found this way of problem-solving helpful outside of just academics and an effective way to tackle complex problems in the real world. I also spend my time volunteering at an educational institution utilising informal education practices, which allow me to make my sessions engaging and different from standard school classes, incorporating effective study strategy and time management into my teaching.

My VCE 3&4 marks are;
Specialist Mathematics - 53 (44 raw)
Mathematical Methods - 49 (46 raw)
Physics - 48 (47 raw)
Chemistry - 41 (37 raw)
and as such, I have an extremely comprehensive knowledge of all the study designs and content. I provide questions, resources and previous exams. As such, I can help my students catch up, solidify their current learning, and extend further into the curriculum.

If you're interested, feel free to send me a message, I'm able to home-visit near Caulfield and Clayton, and additionally, I am confident in teaching effectively over Zoom.

I hope to hear from you soon!
