Alasdair C Very responsive
Tutoring near Paddington, Brisbane, QLD & Brisbane City, Brisbane, QLD


I am a first class honours graduate with a 6.7/7.0 GPA from QUT's Bachelor of Business (Honours) (Economics) program, where I finished with a Dean's Award for Excellence. I also took subjects in law as part of my undergraduate degree. Recently, I was accepted into a Master's Program at King's College London (MA Philosophy), where I will begin studying in September 2021. For now, I am working as a freelance writer and tutor.

In high school, I graduated with an OP1 (equiv. ATAR 99+) and as Dux of my school (Townsville Grammar School), where I received subject prizes in Maths B, Maths C, Physics, and French.

I am a kind, patient and enthusiastic person who loves to share knowledge, inspire passion and unlock the potential of others - both through rigorous learning and through intellectual conversation. Above all, I hope I can lead you towards the discovery and pursuit of your own unique interests.

In my tutorials, I pay great attention to the needs and learning style of my student. This means that I am capable of helping people of all ages and academic abilities through my attentive, thoughtful and caring approach to education.

I have a year of experience tutoring. In 2020, I tutored eight students of varying ages, and helped all of them learn and flourish at school.

For high-school students, I can give tutorials in Physics, Mathematics B, English, Economics and Legal Studies. At the university level, I am happy to tutor people in first and second year commerce and economics courses.

Get in touch today - I look forward to bringing out the very best in you or your child!
