WHY SHOULD YOU CONSIDER ME AS A TUTOR?
TEACHING STYLE
Being a tutor has made me realise what works and what does not work when teaching students. Everyone knows that good results are derived from a platform of strong knowledge. But, how do you build that platform both better and faster? Most tutors will NEVER realise that the crucial step is for them to LOVE the subjects that they teach. I know exactly how a tutor's passion can easily influence their students, and that's why my focus is always on helping my students become passionate about their subjects.

TEACHING EXPERIENCE + RESULTS
I have experience as a Science Olympiad tutor for James Ruse students. I taught a class of 10 students who started with NO knowledge of the subject. Under my direction, 4 out of 10 placed in the TOP 24 IN AUSTRALIA in the National Qualifying Exam for Earth Sciences Olympiad.

WHAT YOU GET
My goal is to help you achieve the highest results OVERALL - NOT JUST the subjects I tutor you in. I am entirely happy to take spontaneous questions across ANY subjects that I did. I will extensively mark your essays and practice papers ANYTIME. Lessons are HIGHLY individualised - I structure all my lessons around WHAT YOU WANT. I adjust the way I teach based on your preferences.
I will analyse your drafts based on the SPECIFIC requirements and preferences of YOUR SCHOOL.

For English, I don't just want my students to be satisfied with producing well-written essays. I teach them exactly how to make their writing STAND OUT in any exam. How I achieve this is by:
- Walking you through fully analysed essay examples, that show you exactly what to do and what NOT to do, which you then get to keep.
- Helping you achieve outstanding written expression + clarity
- Facilitating your development of a comprehensive understanding of the prescribed texts
- Collating wide readings to help you understand context and authorial intent, so you can actually use them FLEXIBLY and EFFECTIVELY in exams

For Maths, Physics and Chemistry, I adopt a teaching approach focused on helping students gain a full understanding of the LOGIC behind each syllabus topic, concept and question. I provide:
- COMPREHENSIVE notes that cover EVERY part of the syllabus (and beyond)
- Rigorous sets of questions and mock exam papers as weekly homework.
- Showing you MULTIPLE methods of solving the same question so your understanding is as strong as it can be.

I also write my own questions for students, because textbooks frankly do not provide the depth necessary for high achievement. My students become highly adaptable during exams and are capable of answering the hardest questions.

NEW SYLLABUS
Having been the first cohort to go through the new English and Science syllabi, I know exactly what is required to achieve high marks despite the course demands having experienced a significant shift.

RATES
$60/h for HSC
$55/h for Year 7 - 10 + Prelim
