About

Hi, I am a current Grade 12 student looking to begin tutoring students over the summer holidays and beyond, to help them prepare well in advance of the new year! I am available to do tutoring over Zoom/Microsoft Teams/Facetime, as well as in-person (see travel policy).

I am currently studying Mathematics (Methods and Specialist), Chemistry, Biology, English, and Chinese (as a second language). I also took the UCAT this year and achieved a score of 3140/B2, and have received an interview for UQ Provisional Entry Medicine.

My marks before externals are:
Specialist: 47/50
Methods: 47/50
Biology: 49/50
Chemistry: 49/50
Chinese: 74/75
English: 75/75

I have experience as a group tutor of Grade 8 and 9 students, both teaching material and educating them on good study habits over a semester-long period. Additionally, I was a mentor for a group of Grade 8 girls, and I understand the unique way that younger high school students learn. Finally, my experience as Student Vice President has improved my communication skills, allowing me to connect with tutees of all ages.

I also understand how to best apply to different learning styles, having taken 2 university subjects whilst in high school.

My teaching style is to help students gain knowledge to answer questions, but most importantly, provide them with the logic and reasoning skills to approach all questions in all subjects with confidence. I also dedicate time to helping students understand exactly what is being asked of them through task and criteria sheets, ensuring that they meet the objectives and get the best marks with minimum wasted time.

As a tutor, I can provide full high-scoring assignments for all my subjects, as well as detailed Mathematics and Biology subject notes, and fully worked examples for tricky questions.
