About

Hey there! I'm a second year studying Bachelor of Philosophy (Science) at the ANU (yes, that's a science degree) specialising in Mathematics and Physics. I hail from Auckland, New Zealand where I graduated Dux of Kristin School in 2018, completing the IB Diploma with a total score of 43 (ATAR 99.70). With my three years worth of tutoring experience, I understand that each student has a unique set of strengths, difficulties and interests.

In high school, I took up my college's scholarship physics workshops and gained free rein to catapult balls across the classroom and sprawl physics over the whiteboards. This is when I found a passion for science communication. I now hold sessions online over Zoom, where I make use of online tools such as collaborative whiteboards and simulations, or I can hold sessions in person in Canberra.

I can assist with any of the IB subjects mentioned in my achievements, as well as HSC Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics (up to Extension 2), and SAT exams. I have expertise in report writing and essay writing and can assist with general essay writing skills for both the sciences and humanities. I am available most evenings of the week as well as weekends.

Reviews

I did competition maths with Jake for around a year and we covered a lot of higher level content which he explained really well with a lot of depth.
He has a great style of teaching and I learnt about so many interesting and different topics of mathematics with him.
I did a lot of proof based maths for the first time with Jake and he was really patient and explained each concept clearly.
Placing an emphasis on understanding and developing problem solving skills in mathematics.
For anyone in highschool who is interested in maths and wants to learn some material extending beyond any highschool maths course, or is doing any maths competitions, Jake's a really great tutor to help you learn some new and interesting bits of maths.
