About

IB 45 | 99.95 ATAR | *Currently Offering Holiday Discount*
Hi, my name is Josh Perera! I recently graduated from Trinity Grammar School where I completed the International Baccalaureate Diploma. I received a perfect IB score of 45/45 (99.95 ATAR), earning me the privileged position of Equal First in the World. I am now studying a Bachelor of Laws and Commerce at Sydney Uni.

Having begun tutoring immediately after the conclusion of my final exams, I have 250+ hours of experience since then (as of May). As a recent 2021 IB graduate, I can offer unique guidance and support for my students. I have a deep understanding of the syllabus and requirements and can provide the tricks and tips that will ensure your success in high school and improved results.

Marks achieved and IB subjects tutored:
7: Business Management SL/HL (Ranked 2nd)- Raw mark of 84 in Business Management HL, beating the grade boundary by 15 marks including 45/50 in Paper Two.
7: Economics SL/HL (Ranked 3rd in cohort)- Achieved a raw mark of 81 in Economics HL, surpassing the grade boundary by 12 marks.
7: French SL/ab initio (Ranked 4th) - Received a raw mark of 87 in French SL, exceeding the grade boundary by 8 marks including 97% in the writing examination. I am currently taking Advanced French at University.

7: English Literature SL/HL - Scored a grade 7 in English Literature HL, and ranked 6th in cohort.
7: I accelerated Mathematics SL and received a raw mark of 89. I am able to tutor IB Mathematics AI/AA SL, including support with the IA (my IA was modelling disease spread and received 18/20).

A: I wrote my EE on English Literature and received a mark of 32/34
TOK: I received 7 in my Theory of Knowledge Essay and a raw mark of 9/10 in the presentation.
CAS: Over 200 reflections and over 550 completed CAS hours.

Having balanced many activities with the IB, I have developed valuable organisational and time management skills and study techniques, that can help you be more efficient. I can also help improve your assignments and exam preparation. I have experience working with high school students of all ages and abilities, and teach in a relatable, understandable and friendly manner that is adaptable to the individual needs of the student. Currently, I also work as a Debating Adjudicator for the ISDA Debating Competition and Archdale Competition.

I am also happy to sell my subject notes, internal assessments (IAs), past paper responses and provide marking/feedback to students who don't have lessons with me. Please contact me for this!

I can tutor in-person and online, on any platform of your choice. I also offer tutoring for Year 7-10 subjects and have substantial experience working with younger students. I also provide support with University Admissions including the Law Admissions Test (LAT).

I am able to provide tuition for HSC subjects that have overlap with my IB subjects, including: English (Standard/Advanced/Extension), Mathematics (Standard/Advanced/Extension), Business Studies, Economics, PDHPE and French (Beginners/Continuers/Extension).

My hourly rate includes preparation for the individually tailored lessons and post-lesson feedback and follow-up. Students are also able to receive complimentary resources and out-of-lesson support through messaging and emails whenever they need assistance.

Reviews

Josh is a great Tutor, highly recommended!! I have had 5 lessons with him and have found them very helpful as they cover a range of subjects: study habits, useful tools for increasing productivity, essay/GLA writing, and more.
Josh has great experience and insight in increasing all-round success. But especially within the IB context, he has proven to have some great tips and resources that have increased my productivity and allowed me to get a head start on the course content.
Would definitely recommend it to anybody who is going into the latter years of highschool/preparing for their final exams.
Brilliant and Fun Tutor! 5 Stars
