About

5+ YRS EXPERIENCE | STEM SPECIALIST | UNSW HONOURS GRADUATE | ONLINE TUTORING AVAILABLE | EXCELLENT REVIEWS (see below) | SCIENCE EXT MENTOR | TRILINGUAL

Hi, my name is Kenneth and I am an experienced and highly capable STEM tutor. I have more than 5 years of experience tutoring primary and high school students privately and have worked as both a mentor and teacher for over 25 students at a professional tutoring center. I am proficient in explaining core concepts in STEM subjects to students, and I fully understand the importance of building a solid foundation in these subjects, as that is the key to fostering a continuum of success in the senior years of high school.

Currently, I'm tutoring 15 students privately with highly tailored lessons, where teaching methods are individualised for each student depending on their levels of competence and needs.

I’m also providing mentorship to my Science Extension (a newly added HSC science subject) students regarding their scientific research. With my experience in post-doctoral research on Nanoparticle Catalysis under the School of Chemical Engineering, I offer detailed reviews on research reports and constructive recommendations on further research developments based on individual projects.

I am a very patient and dedicated tutor, and I always cater my lessons to each student’s individual needs and capabilities. My teaching method includes using various ways to explain exam questions, highlighting efficient ways of approaching questions, and pointing out likely areas of error in light of exam preparation.

To further my continued excellence and passion for STEM subjects during high school, I have recently completed an Honours degree in Bachelor of Engineering, specialised in Chemical Engineering at UNSW with DISTINCTION average.

Reviews

Kenneth is a wonderful and highly skilled maths and chemistry tutor, and has helped my son a lot since he started learning with Kenneth.

Kenneth can explain complicated and confusing maths concepts in really clear ways, and my son says Kenneth has taught him many fast methods of solving mathematical equations, and pointed out common errors and pitfalls in exams, which helped him get 95% for his recent exam. Chemistry was initially also challenging for my son, but with kenneths assistance my son recently achieved 100% for both his latest exams, and really enjoys chemistry too.

I would not hesitate to recommend kenneth, he is an excellent and extremely patient and knowledgeable tutor.

Kenneth is an absolutely amazing tutor. I found Kenneth on High School Tutor’s.com for my son’s Math tutor. I concerned the Math at High school is getting hard to fully understand for my son when he reached Year8 ( Currently Year 9 ), I scrolled all tutoring web site with little hope as I was not sure it is the best way to find one on the internet. But I am one of the luckiest mum that could find Kenneth who is very talented with any subjects including Math, so passionate with teaching and has management skill to organise the class in any situation especially during Covid-19 lock down situation, he has no hesitation to runs the online session which was fully organized well by him and so easy to follow for my son.
My son’s Math mark & report improved dramatically since he started studying with Kenneth. I really appreciate with Kenneth for what he does and so does my son, he really enjoys studying with Kenneth. If you are looking for someone who is absolutely you can count on for your child or for yourself if you are student, I guarantee you will be so happy with Kenneth.

I highly recommend Kenneth, he tutors me HSC Maths Ext 1 and he has explained the concepts and how to get to the equations in a lot of clarity. I recently had a 30% improvement on my last exam with his help, would not hesitate in recommending him!

Kenneth is a great tutor who is currently assisting me throughout my HSC Mathematics General Course, he has helped me boost my grades in Maths by providing useful tips and tricks when tackling complicated equations and my marks in comparison to Year 11 have shown his teaching to be extremely effective. He is very patient and always eager to provide the quickest yet practical solution to any mathematical equation. Would 10/10 recommend!!

Kenneth is insanely good at giving examples to you when you are stuck or need help on the question. He is very patient with you while you're working out and is extraordinarily kind. I appreciate him as my tutor and my math results have excelled greatly.
