About

Hi my name is Micah Wong. I graduated from Waverley Christian College, achieving an overall ATAR of 99.50. Currently, I am offering tutoring for VCE Methods, Specialist, Chemistry and Physics as well as Year 10 Mathematics and Science. I study at Monash University under the Bachelor of Commerce and Actuarial Sciences.

During VCE I achieved 47 in Physics, 46 in Mathematical Methods, 41 in Specialist Maths and 41 in Chemistry as well as receiving awards for Mathematical Methods 1/2, Mathematical Methods 3/4, Specialist Maths 1/2, Specialist 3/4, Physics 1/2, Physics 3/4 at my school (these are given to the student who achieved the highest average SAC scores in their cohort in that year).

As a complement to teaching mathematics, my Actuarial Sciences degree, involving highly complex mathematical techniques, will allow me to explain mathematical concepts with a background that most maths teachers will be unable to offer. Achieving an overall high distinction score in first and second year level maths units in Monash University (92/100) and an overall WAM of 86.55, I have enriched knowledge of the mathematics I will be teaching.

My tutoring will offer:
-Clear explanation for otherwise complex concepts across all subjects
-The patience to re-explain certain concepts if the student is struggling and willing to go overtime if necessary
-A variety of questions across different textbooks and question-books for each subject.
-Practice exams for Methods and Specialist from 1999 to 2017 including the new study design. Practice exams for Chemistry and Methods from 2012 to 2017 including the new study design.
-Willing to create challenging questions that fit to the current study design for preparation for SACs and the final exam.
-Willing to offer assistant for students online anytime I am available.

Fees:
For all Year 10 and 1/2 subjects, at home face to face tutoring will be $30/hour and for all 3/4 subjects; $35/hour
For students who want tutoring at a public location, fees may vary depending on said location. I am willing to travel within 10 km radius from where I live, preferably at either the Knox or Glen Waverley Library.

Experience:
Aside from my VCE and University academic record, I have one year experience in teaching all of the subjects listed and have tutored students from a variety of schools: Waverley Christian College, Wesley College, Box Hill Secondary School, Melbourne High School and Balwyn Highschool.
