About

Hello! I am currently a 3rd year UWA student majoring in Medical Sciences and Exercise and Health, and in the direct pathway to medicine. Upon completion of my Undergraduate degree, I will commence my Doctor of Medicine in 2020. I have been tutoring high school students for the past 3 years, ranging from Year 9 to 12) all over Perth.

I own a Working with Children's Check (WWCC).
I own a National Police Certificate (NPC).

I have experience in and currently tutoring:
- Year 10 Mathematics
- Year 10 Biology
- Year 10 Science
- Year 11 Human Biology
- Year 11 Methods
- Year 12 Methods
- Year 12 Human Biology

I studied in the rigorous education system in Singapore for 12 years, completed GCE 'O' Levels, then studied in Monash University Foundation for a year and did the VCE examinations, prior to coming to UWA. So I completely empathise with the struggles of studying and stress!

I would love to create an informal, fun, positive, and effective learning environment for students. Friends describe me as someone optimistic and cheerful. I aim to encourage students who resent math/science to love it again and to do well in it! I also tailor my delivery in teaching according to students' strengths and weaknesses so that they can benefit maximally during tutorials.

I thoroughly enjoy math and science (human biology) and love teaching and imparting whatever knowledge/tips I have obtained from studying the past 14 years, and motivate the student as much as I can!

Reviews

I spent two years being tutored by Edwina in Methods and I've never had so much fun doing maths! Originally my mathematics skills were fairly horrendous and I struggled to do any study, however Edwina taught me not only how to analyse the question and apply the correct maths techniques, but also how to structure my studying and overall timetable to make the most of my time and take in all of the important information without slaving over the excess. She inspired and showed me how to become better at such an invaluable subject, to the point that I was able to gain acceptance into my goal university and area of study! Thank you so much Edwina, I am forever grateful <3
