IB 45 | 99.95 ATAR | Beat Grade Boundaries by avg 16%
Hi, my name is Josh Perera :) I recently graduated from Trinity Grammar School (Summer Hill) 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. My strong academic achievements, coupled with my performance in the IB, including surpassing the grade boundaries by an average of 16% demonstrates my suitability to guiding you through your high school journey!

I have significant tutoring experience, having begun tutoring immediately after the conclusion of my final exams. As a recent 2021 IB graduate I can offer unique guidance and support for my students. I have a deep understanding of the IB syllabus and requirements and can provide the tricks and tips that will ensure your success in the IB 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.

Furthermore, I am able to provide support with HSC subjects that have overlap with my IB subjects. I have extensive resources, knowledge of the requirements to achieve a Band 6/E4, and experience, having done accelerated HSC courses in Year 10.
HSC subjects that I offer support for:
- English (Standard / Advanced / Extension)
- Mathematics (Standard / Advanced / Extension 1)
- Business Studies and Economics
- French (Beginners / Continuers)

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. For example, while in Year 12 I helped successfully mentor a Year 7 Debating team. My plan for 2022 is to study Law and Commerce at Sydney Uni, and I have received early entry offers and scholarships to study Law and Business at UTS, in addition to Law and Commerce at the Australian National University.

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

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
