About

5+ YRS EXPERIENCE | STEM SPECIALIST | 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 over 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

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.
