About

- NEW SCIENCE SYLLABUS TRAINED -

Hi there! I'm Katherine and I'm currently in my second last year of my Secondary Science Education degree at the University of Sydney. I am very passionate about helping and motivating students to achieve their best and kindling curiosity in science.

As of 2018, new year 11 science syllabus' have been implemented in schools (year 12 starting term 4, 2018), with the introduction of 3 new science units: Investigating Science, Science Life Skills and Science Extension. My current studies at university have prepared me for interpreting and teaching these new syllabus', with many of my university mentors being involved with the construction of these syllabus' at NESA.

I have previously gained experience working with many students at schools of various learning abilities and needs. As a former student myself, I understand how difficult science can be at times. Science was a subject that I loved learning about, but always found difficult due to complex terminology and concepts. These factors have inspired me to be part of the teaching profession and to help students achieve and appreciate science. I greatly value teaching and learning strategies that help overcome misconceptions and simplify complex content.

As your tutor, I will work closely with you to establish learning goals, and identify your strengths and weaknesses with science. The structure of our learning sessions will be designed to tailor your learning needs and goals. You can:

- learn how to approach and attempt exam questions (exam technique)
- learn and revise syllabus content
- engage in discussion and interactive learning activities
- be given and have access to up to date resources and learning materials
- be part of a of an online learning platform


Our first session will be spent getting to know you and discussing your learning needs and goals. We will also establish where you are at in class, and develop goals and plans for our consequential sessions if you decide to continue tutoring with me.

First session: $25 for 1 hour
Following sessions: $50 for 1 hour
$65 for 1.5 hours

* group sessions for up to 3 students are also available, ask for prices.
