I am a high-achieving student, passionate coach, and expert tutor in senior Humanities, junior mentoring, and debating. I currently study a Bachelor of Politics, Philosophy and Economics at the University of Queensland, and coach several debating and rowing teams.

As an accomplished debater, public speaker, and coach, I can offer unique teaching strategies for students who are struggling to grapple with content or just want an extra competitive edge. I aim to develop both subject-specific knowledge and transferable assessment or study skills in my students, and have a strong record of helping tutorees achieve top-class outcomes.

Raph has been my English and Philosophy tutor in year 12 and I would definitely recommend him as your tutor. I was impressed by his professionalism and friendliness! Raph's vast knowledge and skills have really helped me achieve great results in English and Philosophy from a B to an A/A+. Not only does he teach well, but he was always willing to talk me through questions, give clear explanations and mark my work through email :)
