About

Thank you for looking at my profile. I have a passion for mathematics and science, and for the past decade have been teaching and researching in geophysics as a post-doctoral fellow at Curtin University and CSIRO.

I tutored in high school level mathematics and physics while I was studying for my Ph.D (Geophysics) and found it to be a rewarding and enjoyable experience. I have also taught first and second year university level mathematics and physics to Geophysics students while working at Curtin.

I have decided on a change in direction, and am hoping to build a career as a professional tutor. All students learn differently. Some are visual thinkers and benefit from graphical and geometric illustration, while others are more comfortable with a detailed mathematical proof. I have a talent for identifying the conceptual problems a student may be struggling with and deducing the most effective way to assist them.

Rather than relying solely on exam preparation and rote learning, I prefer to ground a student with an understanding of fundamental principles. I find that this builds a students confidence and critical thinking skills, and allows them to tackle any type of problem that arises.

Education

Bachelor of Science (Geophysics) First Class Honours from Curtin University.

Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D) (Geophysics) from Curtin University.
