About

Hey, I'm Emily! I completed my HSC at St Ursula's College in 2020 with an ATAR of 98.00.

My marks for the relevant subjects were
Mathematics Advanced: 96
Studies of Religion II: 94
Physics: 91

I'm currently studying to be a high school Mathematics and senior Physics teacher at UNSW. As such, I am super passionate about helping students and always have been! I have experience working with children and older students as a Dance teacher and Party Hostess and have tutored many students - even throughout my high school experience. Being a 2020 graduate, I am part of the only year group with new syllabus Maths Adv knowledge, and one of two year groups with new syllabus Physics knowledge.

I always give heaps of helpful feedback and strategies so you know what to do next time and am all about how to improve moving forward and how to efficiently and effectively study for trials and HSC. I finished Year 11 coming first only in Physics, then by Year 12 came first internally for 2 of my subjects (Maths Adv, Business Studies with a raw trial mark of 98) and second for another 2 (SORII, Physics), and then achieved the top mark of my school in the HSC for all Maths Adv, Business and Physics - I know what strategies are required to continually jump up the ranks. I attribute these ranks to HSC trials where I really made my improvement, so Yr 12s, it's not too late!

I am a very charismatic, energetic, and entertaining person which is conveyed in my teaching style. I understand how stressful the whole HSC journey can be, and how tough it can be at times to listen to hours of content and absorb it all in, so if you are the sort of person that struggles with online learning or concentration levels, I make sure to be the sort of tutor that makes it easy to remember what I say and all the little tips and tricks on how to tackle tricky questions. Lessons with me typically include answering any questions you may have, then endlessly providing you with those tricky end-of-exam questions that we work through together since trials and HSC style questions are so different to routine textbook questions.

I always make short term achievable goals for my seniors that help them see the endgame HSC/Prelim exams as that bit more achievable. As my student, you would be assured my complete dedication and commitment to seeing you achieve the best you can, whether that be bringing you lollies every time you give me an essay that blows me away, creating mock exam papers personalised to your specific exam topics, or hopping on a Zoom call to answer your last minute questions at 11.59pm the night before an assignment is due for no extra charge (all things I have done for my current Year 12s on various occasions).
