About

Hello! I'm Will, a recent graduate of Newington College who completed the IB program with a score of 44/45 (equivalent ATAR of 99.85). I'll be studying a BA in Jurisprudence (Law) at the University of Oxford late this year, and am offering tuition for a range of subjects, specializing in English, Latin and Economics.

From the get-go, I want to hear about you - how you learn and where you are at currently. With 18 months of tutoring experience, I understand that everyone requires something different, and will adopt a top-down approach comprehensively tailored to your needs, whether that involve catch-up work, pre-exam prep, subject acceleration or the building of specific skills.

For IB students, I have a bank of past papers and top band exemplars for subject IAs as well as EE and TOK essays at your disposal. Additionally, I am more than happy to mark and offer advice on your written work, whether it be the aforementioned assessments or homework pieces.

I can also help with the UK application process for Oxbridge as well as the US application process, and also provide advice for university courses in NSW, including Medicine, Law, and others.

There's a lot of time between now and when I leave for Oxford, so I'm very flexible! If you have any questions regarding time or location, feel free to contact me at 0413863795, or at my email, willmai745@gmail.com.

Character references

During our time as students in the IB diploma program, Will and I spent lots of time completing homework, essays and major assignments together. Most importantly, we frequently graded each other’s work and drew from each other’s subject and general knowledge. What I can say about Will is that his depth of knowledge across all of his subject areas in the IB - especially in English and Philosphy - is immense and the way he writes essays is something everyone should learn from. I would recommend Will to anyone looking for an extremely clear source of knowledge for their subjects.
