About

If you could never really “get” Mathematics, never really find an appreciation for it, then you need look no further. For me (and I hope for you too), marks were never of primary importance but the acquisition of knowledge itself. By all means I will help you to earn the marks, but that comes AFTER what is infinitely more important.

I am studying Pure Mathematics (and Philosophy) at the University of Sydney, having grown an insatiable love for this discipline. I now hope to impart to you this love.

Structure of Lessons
30 minutes: weekly 20 minute quiz and remaining 10 minutes for correcting mistakes
30 minutes: checking homework so as to revise past concepts
1 hour: new course material, with an equal emphasis on practice as on theory (i.e. HSC past papers); also possible to help with student assignments/projects

Each standard lesson is thus 2 hours in total. Shorter or longer lesson times are perfectly fine if due to upcoming exams or individual needs. From my previous teaching experience, however, 2 hours is ideal.

My email address is caleb.tjoan@gmail.com.Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.

If you are in need, then it would be my utmost pleasure to help, in aiming towards an ever increasing mastery of this beautiful subject we call Mathematics. Thank you, and I look forward to working with you! Caleb

Reviews

This man is so good at 3U math that he took it twice in 1 year!
All jokes aside, Caleb's help during my HSC was like the number 1 - rational and real.
Thanks Caleb for the knowledge!
