About

Hi there!
Firstly with a little bit of history, I've been a tutor ever since I was 16, first starting in tutoring music, piano specifically. Throughout the years, I have had the privilege of being employed at multiple companies to be one of their distinguished tutors, and have had many mentors show me different approaches when teaching different people. Being experienced in tutoring both on a personalized and academic level will benefit the learning experience that the student will have, and I believe that it is very important that as much as the student should learn from the session, that they should also be happy, satisfied and feel accomplished after each and every tutoring session.

My teaching approach for each individual student is as follows

-A quick assessment to determine current level of ability in comparison to what is needed.
-Tailored lesson approach, suitable for their learning style and personality.
-Informative explanations of content that are succinct and easy to understand.
-Providing assistance with homework, assessments or assignments
-Providing practice papers, past papers and specialized selections of questions tailored to their weaknesses.
-Finally, giving a safe, friendly and optimistic learning environment, where boredom is at an all time minimum.

It is of my utmost importance to enlighten and inspire the new generation of students, that sometimes the syllabus isn't as difficult and daunting as it seems, but because of poor explanation from some teachers out there, it may seem as if acing the HSC is an insurmountable task.

As a person who gets inspired by others, I want to be a beacon that can carry on the torch of the people who have inspired me, to inspire even more and show that with a good teacher, a good attitude and a great beaming smile, anything can be achieved, no matter how difficult it seems.

Merlin as friend of mine, he is absolutely unique person, who loves to help people and tries his best to do so. As co-worker in tutoring, all his students love him, they also get motivated to do work from any primary of secondary education. Because he puts undeniable effort into his work. Picking him as your tutor will be the best decision you will ever make.
