STATE RANK MATHS TUTOR | 99.80 ATAR | HSC Preliminary 2U 3U 4U

I came 2nd in NSW in Mathematics Extension 1 and 3rd in NSW in Mathematics Extension 2 in the 2015 HSC. I specialise in individual or group tutoring for Mathematics (2U), Extension 1 (3U) and Extension 2 (4U). I will teach you the tips, tricks and techniques to help you reach your goals and excel in maths, whether you are aiming for a band 6 or even a state rank, or you are simply looking to improve. I cater to students of all abilities.

*If you want English tutoring, I can refer you to a great, state ranking English tutor.*

I have 6 years of tutoring experience and have taught students from schools including Sydney Grammar, Knox, Pymble Ladies, Shore, James Ruse, NSB, NSG, Normanhurst Boys, Abbotsleigh, Barker, Ravenswood, Sydney Boys, Manly Selective Campus, Killara and Chatswood. My students have considerably improved their school ranks with many being near the top of their grade. My students have a 90% Band 6/E4 success rate in maths subjects, with one student achieving a 99.85 ATAR in the 2018 HSC. I am happy to provide references from current and past students if you are interested.

My lessons are focused on:
1)Teaching the content clearly and thoroughly until you fully understand it.
2)Going through examples and exam style questions, during which I will guide you through my thought process on how to approach the questions. I will teach you different problem solving techniques and the most efficient ways to solve different questions. This will allow you to comfortably tackle any future questions you encounter.
3)Improving exam technique. This includes teaching you how to reduce silly mistakes and properly set out responses to maximise marks. In Year 11, I got 100% in every exam so I am especially confident I can help you out in this area.
4)Identifying your weaknesses and helping you improve in those areas.
5)Encouraging you to think critically and outside the box.

I am also happy to assist with assignments or investigation tasks under the new syllabus for year 11 and 12 students.

I am doing a Combined Law and Advanced Mathematics degree at the University of Sydney, a degree which has allowed me to continue my passion for maths. I have completed my maths degree with a High Distinction average. This has allowed me to gain a complete mastery of the high school material, which means I’m able to explain the content in different ways and simply enough so that my students can understand it. I am well equipped to teach the new syllabus as the main change is the introduction of statistics across all levels of maths. I studied statistics at an advanced level at university and it was the focus of my maths degree (I majored in Financial Mathematics and Statistics). I achieved first place in a senior advanced statistics subject and have done academic research relating to statistical tests. I have also learnt all the other additional topics in the new syllabus (e.g. vectors and proof) at university.

I have many past papers, resources and extra materials that I can provide to you, which will help you to broaden your understanding of the coursework and strengthen your mathematical ability. I also make my own exam style questions, which are similar in content and structure to your upcoming school assessments.

Rate:
Individual: 100/hour
Group: 70/hour per person

I am happy to help you with any questions you ask me outside of class by text/email for no extra fee (I'll respond within 24 hours).

Reviews

Raye is an excellent maths tutor. He can explain the concepts so well and in a very efficient and easy to follow manner, so he is able to cover a lot in an hour long lesson. He has answered many questions that my daughter had always wondered why it was so. His knowledge is amazing and he is able to show many different ways to tackle questions. I fully recommend Raye as a maths tutor!
