Jake W
Tutoring near Crows Nest, Sydney, NSW


About

Hi! My name's Jake and I'm in my Honours year of an Arts/Law degree at UNSW, with a Distinction Average WAM. I graduated Cranbrook School in 2014 with an ATAR of 98.50 without the assistance of tutoring, and have since transferred my passion for teaching into the tutoring space.
I tutor English and History, all of which I placed in the top 2 in my school and achieved a Band 6 in.

I'm an experienced consultant for numerous schools in shaping their own education programs, being regularly asked to provide oversight and present to teachers at work, my yearly guest lecture for the EDST4096 Education course at UNSW.

It's very important for me to provide a well-rounded educational experience. In my view, too often tutors provide a script instead of tools to their students. In providing such tools, my students perform well on their own terms and merit in the exam hall and beyond. I look forward to hearing from you!
