I recently graduated from Trinity Grammar School (TGS) in 2021 and successfully completed the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma, obtaining a flawless aggregate high score of 45/45 (99.95 ATAR equivalent) and thus placing me in the privileged position of being in the top percentile of students globally. I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science (B.Sci) / Doctor of Medicine (MD) at the University of Sydney (USYD), majoring in Anatomy & Histology and minoring in Physiology (as well as dabbling in Musical Studies at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music 🎡). Acing high school and the IB 🎯: Upon reflecting on my high school journey, my academic success can be broken down into 3 key elements: proactive learning, consolidation through past exams and question banks, and honest self-reflection. With me at your side during your IB journey, I will utilise these 3 elements to help you navigate the IB and achieve your individual goals. I also recognise that everyone has their own distinctive ways of learning which is why I offer a personalised specialist service to all my students, catering to all abilities and learning curves. I will attend to each student’s needs so that they can reach their own potential. Nothing gives me greater personal satisfaction than to see my student’s cultivated efforts translate into results that they can be proud of. An Overview of Lessons πŸ§‘β€πŸ«: My lessons are run in two main styles. The first style involves me preparing material/content to teach during the lesson (didactic teaching). In the second style, these lessons involve the student bringing a series of questions/queries to ask me (student-directed session). After the lessons, students can contact me offline and I will respond as soon as possible. Subject Tutoring πŸ“š: As a recent IB 2021 graduate, I am intimately familiar with the syllabus requirements of the subjects that I tutor. I offer personalised tutoring in the following subjects which I personally achieved ALL 7s for: Business Management HL ~ Ranked 14/67 (Paper 1: 34/40) English Literature HL ~ Ranked 10/72 (IA: 37/40) Sports, Exercise and Health Science (SEHS) HL ~ Ranked 2/42 in Yr 11 & Ranked 5/42 in Yr 12 (IA: 23/24 - the equal highest mark in TGS 2021 cohort) Chemistry SL ~ Ranked 6/32 (IA: 23/24 - the highest mark in TGS history ever) Mathematics SL AA/AI ~ I accelerated Mathematics SL (2020) - Ranked 3/41 (IA: 19/20) Mandarin ab Initio SL ~ Ranked 1/11 (IA: 37/40) I also offer tutoring for the Extended Essay (EE) component (English Literature), having achieved an A for a 4000-word in-depth study on Gothic literature. Moreover, I can assist with CAS, having successfully completed all required hours and reflections. Internal Assessments (IAs) & EEs πŸ“: Having achieved a combined 91% average mark for all my IAs, I provide proofreading and feedback services for IAs, the EE, or any assignment. I can also help students plan their IAs by assisting them with drafts and polishing their final IAs. If you are not an existing student of mine, you can still send your IA/EE/assignment to me for feedback. Please do not hesitate to reach me via my email (found in traveling policy!) or through the high school tutor platform! Rates πŸͺ™: $110 per hour for 1-on-1 tutoring [**Limited Spots Available**] **From $110 per EE/IA/Assignment proofreading with verbal and written feedback (please inquire now) ***$65 per hour for group lessons, please inquire about pricing packages. Contact Details ☎️: Please do not hesitate to contact me with any potential inquiries. I’ll be honoured to assist you on your own journey. Happy studies and I look forward to hearing from you!!
