Travel policy

I am willing to tutor at the Indooroopilly Library, the Toowong Library, any library at UQ, the Brisbane Square library, or SLQ. Please enquire for times at St Lucia. These are guidelines only - tutoring times can change a lot, and I can have a few timeslots that I can't easily display on here. Ask if you are unsure!

About

Hi, I'm James, an OP1 BSHS graduate from 2018. I received 7s for the two university maths courses I took in high school, and am continuing to pursue my interests by studying at UQ in a Bachelor of Advanced Science.

I continue to seek challenges in my studies, opting to take 3 second year subjects in my first year. I know the feeling of confusion, and I seek it out so that I may not be deceived by a false sense of security. To not be confused during learning means that your confusion will manifest during your exam, or any other challenge requiring those skills. I try to create an environment where students do not feel ashamed to be confused or to have issues solving problems.

I have been tutoring students for over a year, and helping my friends with school for longer. I love maths and chemistry, and showing people how and why the content that we are taught is useful gives me a certain satisfaction. To share my understanding of mathematics and the physical sciences brings me a unique brand of joy that I do not receive from many other pasttimes.

I hope to leave my students with some long lasting skills or methods of thought that will last longer than their knowledge of quadratic factorisations or integration. The problem solving and abstraction skills that can be gained from the subjects I tutor can help with future study or employment not necessarily grounded in the same direct content. Similarly, the study methods and skills required can open the eyes of students to the importance of efficient and regular effort, as well as persisting in the face of confusion.

My response time on high school tutors is generally within 1 day. If you contact me via phone at 0468829113, if I am awake I can usually respond within 5-10 minutes if I am not occupied with other obligations, even if it is just directing my attention back to the sites messages.
