About

99.95 ATAR (IB 45) | 3410 UCAT | UNSW MedSoc Vice President | Currently studying Bachelor of Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine at UNSW with the Scientia Academic Scholarship (Awarded to top 2 scoring applicants each year). Hi! I’m Aidan Tharmarajah and I completed the IB Diploma in 2020 with a perfect score of 45/45. I have experience tutoring students in primary, middle and senior school. I understand the stress of having to manage academics, sport and extra-curricular activities. My aim is to help you succeed in your academics whilst maintaining your involvement in other activities! I know that students learn in different ways and I will provide specialist support by altering my teaching style to suit your learning needs. I provide tutoring in the following subjects: - English Literature SL&HL - English Language and Literature SL&HL - Mathematics SL (AA & AI) - Psychology SL&HL - Business Management SL&HL - Sports Exercise and Health Science SL&HL - French B SL - Extended Essay (English) - TOK - Medical interview training (having been accepted into UNSW, USYD, Adelaide University and University of Newcastle) - UCAT preparation (I received a score of 3410 [99th percentile] in 2020) Having a perfect IB score of 45/45 (99.95 ATAR), I was able to obtain the full 3 points from TOK/EE and achieve a band 7 in all 6 subjects, surpassing the grade boundaries by up to 14 marks. Through tutoring I provide: - Support with not only subject content and IAs, but tried-and-tested exam techniques - Notes, sample work, marked IB exams, IA exemplars - IB past papers, mark schemes and markers report notes - IA proofreading and detailed feedback - Constant access to academic support and advice Having gone through the gruelling process of getting into medicine myself, I understand how difficult it can be to gain entry. In addition to tutoring high school and IB subjects, for those interested in entering medicine, I provide tutoring for the University Clinical Aptitude Test (having received one of the top scores in [99th percentile]) and interview preparation. These two components are just as essential as your ATAR when it comes to medical school admission. I conduct all my tutoring online.

Reviews

Aidan tutored me in psychology HL where I received a high band 7 throughout the 2 years as well as in my final IB exam 2022. His feedback was invaluable to my progress and understanding of the IB concepts and marking criteria for psychology HL. Aidan tutored in a very professional and competent manner and helped me to significantly improve my writing style and structure. He has a wealth of knowledge and skill, and I highly recommend him to anyone sitting the IB.

Aidan was very helpful in my UCAT study, he had clear advice for improvement and provided excellent advice and guidance in actions I should take to improve my performance, helping me receive a result in the 98th percentile

Aidan has undoubtedly been a central pillar to my academic development. Particularly before my medical interviews, my request for last minute advice was no obstacle for Aidan’s selfless and altruistic charisma. He continuously wants to help others, and has always found the time within his own schedule to accomodate for me. Not to mention the priceless advice that he gives without fail. He made sure I had a sound understanding of what to expect in the interview (i.e., structure, questions, interviewers) while respectfully upholding academic integrity. What I found especially invaluable was the tips that he gave. Assisting me with how to answer questions in a succinct and impactful way, appearing as an engaged friendly interviewee, and preparing mentally for the interview, all enabled me to pass the UNSW medicine interview.

In preparation for my upcoming medical interviews I relied upon Aidan T and his very helpful services! Aidan's lessons were a great opportunity to answer some questions that I had about medical interviews, medical applications and even about the medical course. Our sessions helped me gain a greater understanding of studying medicine in the future and ensured that I was not making any big mistakes in the easily overlooked yet important medical school application process. However, what I found most valuable was practising answering questions and taking time to review key questions that are tough and commonly asked in the medical school interviews. I believe that really made the difference in the end as I felt more comfortable in these unpredictable interview scenarios and felt that my responses were more polished than before. Additionally, I very much appreciate that Aidan took the time to respond in great detail to my medicine-related questions no matter what time of day! With Aidan's help, I was able to obtain an unbonded course offer to study Medicine at UNSW. I am very thankful for his assistance in achieving my goal and I would definitely recommend Aidan to others preparing for their medical interviews!

Aidan was a fantastic tutor! Aidan thoroughly understands the IB Syllabus. Aidan improved my TOK Presentation and Essay by helping me understand the IB mark scheme and how to achieve the very top marks. This allowed me to achieve an A grade in both components. Likewise, Aidan's support allowed me to achieve top marks in English Literature. I would recommend Aidan for all subjects he tutors as he is highly well-equipped and vastly knowledgeable.

Aidan provided me with valuable support for the past 2 years over many different subjects as well as more general IB organisation and planning. This was possible due to Aidan's versatility in being able to help with many subjects. Not only was Aidan very helpful and friendly within sessions, he provided me with many resources and was always available to answer questions outside of lessons. Aidan's support allowed me to exceed my academic goals!

Aidan tutored me throughout year 12 when I completed the International Baccalaureate. He specifically helped me with the Theory of knowledge (TOK) essay and helped me achieve an A which I was extremely happy about. I thought his tutoring style was very productive and useful as it is extremely easy to communicate with him and you can tell he cares about your goals. It is worth mentioning that he speaks clearly and concisely about topics you're discussing so that they are easy to understand. Lastly, Aidan is a very intelligent guy and although he did not tutor me in other subjects, I can 100% recommend him as a tutor.
- By Zak Murray on 8th January 2022

Aidan is well-equipped as a tutor with lots of resources and advice, and also very approachable. He is always happy to help with questions and makes lessons personalised to your learning style. He definitely helped me achieve the marks I was after!
- By Annie Chen on 7th January 2022

Aidan helped me significantly with UCAT preparation. His teaching manner was clear and the lesson was structured well. Aidan was was also easily accessible throughout the year, which aided my preparation remarkably. I ended up getting a 3100+ score and I couldn't have done it without Aidan's help. I would definitely recommend seeking his help for UCAT prep.

Aidan is able to explain difficult concepts to not only his students but his peers. Since knowing Aidan, his hardworking attitude and eagerness to learn has rubbed off on me. His sense of humour is also one of a kind.

I have had the pleasure of getting to know Aidan by studying alongside him in our degree. He is one of the most intelligent people I have met and has a great ability to teach difficult concepts in a simple manner. He is no doubt an extremely engaging and effective tutor, and guaranteed to produce the results that you are looking for. I would highly recommend him to students of all levels.
