About

***NOTICE: Unfortunately my schedule is currently full as of March 2019, and I am no longer taking any new students. Feel free to leave me a message if you would like me to keep you in mind if any vacancies open up. If you are looking for OC/Selective tutoring, I am currently teaching Years 4 and 5 classes at North Shore Coaching College (Kogarah branch). Just let the Campus Director know you would like your child to be placed in my class when you enrol. For more information, feel free to contact me or the Kogarah branch director at kogarah@north-shore.com.au.***

Hello! My name is Eric Rong — yes, the Eric Rong you may have heard about or seen in tutoring ads at Hurstville! I am a recently graduated Sydney Grammar School student (ATAR: 99.70) offering high quality, affordable tutoring for primary and high school students of all abilities. Highly enthusiastic, empathetic and experienced, I endeavour to make my lessons as helpful, productive and rewarding as possible to help students achieve their best, while also gaining fulfilment through their work and an appreciation of learning. Where useful, this includes making my own worksheets and resources tailored to each individual student's goals and learning styles; I'd be very happy to share some examples upon request! I am patient, thorough and collaborative, aiming to elicit deep understanding through curiosity and inquiry.

Eric is the best tutor on the market, the only tutor I would recommend above him is myself, of course ;). In all seriousness, great personality, crazy smart and devoted to a student’s pursuits. Great method of instruction.
