Sarah C
Tutoring near Birtinya QLD & Eight Mile Plains, Brisbane, QLD


About

Hi, I’m Sarah! I graduated from Brisbane State High School in 2019 with a 99.60 ATAR, and I’m currently in my final year of a Bachelor of Medical Science/Doctor of Medicine at USC (GPA 7).

I’m very passionate about teaching maths! I love how absolute and methodical it can be, and how it underpins the fabric of our everyday lives. One of the aspects I enjoyed most about studying maths is how it demands true understanding and intuition, rather than simply memorising. I think this is where many students go wrong when studying maths, so I like to teach in a way that encourages critical thinking and problem solving rather than rote learning.

I also really enjoy reading and writing! I'm very familiar with many of the texts being taught in the syllabus (english and english literature) so I would be very happy to help out with drafting, editing or simply interpreting a text!

I am able to tutor the following senior subjects (+more junior subjects!):
English: VH9/A+
Maths Methods: VH8/A+
Physics: VH7/A
Maths Specialist: VH7/A
French: VH5/A
Chemistry: VH4/A

I have kept all my notes, study resources and assignments from year 11 and 12, and have many worksheets for students in younger grades too! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Reviews

Character references

I studied with Sarah for a few years, she is incredibly intelligent, funny, and organised. She teaches very inclusively and is proactive and caring towards her students. She creates a very comfortable learning environment, for people struggling or more advanced. I would recommend Sarah as a teacher to all students, for her experience and talent.
