## Travel policy

I can travel a fair distance to tutor. For long travel times I might add a small charge, contact to discuss.

## 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.
