PHYSICS STATE RANK 98/100 | 99.85 ATAR | RUSE | MEDICINE

Hi, I'm Bob Chen. I state ranked 7th in NSW in Physics. At James Ruse, I ranked 1st for Physics and 3rd for Chemistry. Since graduating in 2019, I've tutored over 50 students and helped them achieve the marks they deserve.

Are you sick of losing marks to silly mistakes? Losing marks to "explain" questions? Losing marks to accuracy, reliability and validity questions? I can help you. I've given a lot of thought to these problems and I've come up with step by step guidelines to help you ace them.

Why me?

I was also terrible at science back in Year 10. By the end of Year 10, I was ranking bottom 35% of my cohort. However, by the end of Year 11, I had topped James Ruse Physics, placing first in the cohort. By the end of Year 12, I was first in Physics, and had also become Top 5 in Chemistry.

How did I do it?

It has to do with questioning the content more deeply. To dig into the meaning behind equations and concepts and really think about it. To put in, “mental effort”. I’ll be teaching you this technique and more to help you achieve the same transformation. _________________________________________________________________________________

Experience

I've had experience teaching in the top tutoring center in Sydney, with a very high level of expertise and teaching skill required to work there. In private tutoring, I've helped students drastically transform their marks. One student moved from 75 in Physics Trials to 93 in HSC in just 2.5 months with me.

I've taught over 50 students from:

James Ruse
Baulkham Hills
Sydney Grammar
Meriden
Knox
North Sydney Girls and Boys
Sydney Girls and Boys and many more

About Me


Physics has always been hard (even for me!), and with the new added uncertainty following a very difficult HSC exam (just see SMH!) demands that students have an extremely powerful command over physics knowledge. But how? Generally what happens in physics classrooms is simply passing information. Students memorise facts and formulas. But then when it comes to any nonstandard question (which were abundant in the 2019 HSC) this will spectacularly fail.

Teaching Style:

My teaching style is guided by proven recent pedagogical research. I emphasise the use of mental effort and through understanding of a concept. Through students really deeply thinking about a concept and questioning why it happens to be this way, it promotes an incredibly deep understanding that will not only help them attain top of their grade marks but also a love of the subject.
