I am a former Design and Software engineer in the aerospace, defence and IT sectors. I have also been the primary carer for my son for 3 years. During that time I became aware of the great need for additional tutoring support in mathematics and science for school students in Australia and especially western Melbourne. I hope I can help your child greatly improve in maths and science whatever their ability level in their current learning environment.
I am committed to helping you achieve your goals and will strive to nurture your self confidence and ensure you develop good study habits for the future.
I am a dedicated tutor and am passionate about seeing my students grow, think for themselves and realise their full potential.
I am devoted to developing independent learners that have a passion for knowledge and personal growth. I establish genuine connections with my students that allow them to thrive under my mentorship. With a vast and in-depth education in many fields, I will be able to tailor my tuition to your child's specific needs and implement learning strategies best suited their individual learning styles.
The headmaster of my former high school once said that he is just as proud of the boy who gets a 98 ATAR as he is with the boy who was planning to drop out of school but finished his VCE with a comparatively lower ATAR. I didn't believe him at the time, but now I can see how what he said was true. Whether it's the student who is doing well and seeking to excel, or the student who is struggling and just seeking to get on top of things, everyone needs a bit of support from time to time - "no man is an island". My role as a tutor is not to replace a teacher, but to be that extra pillar of support in a student's studies. I believe that in school (and life in general for that matter), we succeed best when we focus on our strengths, but acknowledge our weaknesses and seek ways to improve upon them. As a tutor I seek to identify students' strengths and weaknesses at all times. Sometimes there are no major weaknesses in a student's abilities, and a better understanding of the subject matter can simply be achieved by having the same content explained in a different way (this is where tutors such as myself can greatly compliment a teacher's work). But sometimes a student does have a specific weakness, at which point I seek to work with the student's strengths to teach the student the content they struggle with. Sometimes this may be quick and simple to do, other times I may prepare a written reference teaching the content, complete with worked example and practise questions. I've been volunteering with high school students in various programs since 2012, and find that I can easily communicate with and relate to young people. I am committed to seeing all the students I tutor succeed: the greatest reward I can get from tutoring is seeing a student succeed in an area where they used to struggle. "Hope is a good thing. Maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies."
I completed the Victorian Certificate of Education in 2013, undertaking studies in Psychology, Health and Human Development, Further Mathematics, Physical Education and English. I received academic awards from my school for excellence in Health and Human Development, Physical Education and English. I also received a Year 12 High Achiever Award. I am currently studying a university degree in Health Science and Arts (majoring in history), as well as a certificate in Education Support. After my tertiary studies I hope to go on and become a school teacher. I can offer you or your child an engaging learning experience in a fun, safe environment where 'having a go' is encouraged and questions are welcomed. I am able to adapt my tutoring styles to meet individual student needs and learning styles to maximise confidence, content retention and success.
I am a conscientious and enthusiastic student currently in my final year of Primary Education at the Australian Catholic University. I aspire to be a positive influence in student's lives and to pass on my love of learning. Additionally, I believe strongly in inclusive education and helping all students reach their fullest potential by catering for individual learning needs. Consequently I go to great effort to understand each student, their interests, and how they learn.
Not your average tutor. I've been teaching at University level for a few years, and also volunteering with a tutoring programme so I'm up-to-date with high-school maths, physics and chemistry. The feedback from my students is that my sheer enthusiasm can make very dry material interesting. I've had a very varied career plus a multitude of side-projects where I've used a lot of the material we're covering. I like finding real-world examples - for electromagnetism we looked up a YouTube video of the experiment where a wire jumps out of a magnet once a current is running through it. As well as getting you on track with your subjects, I'll hopefully give you a wider sense of why you're learning all this stuff!
I've always been more of a words and language person rather than a numbers person, and over the years I've developed a love and passion for language and linguistics. I would be more than happy to be able to share that passion with students and help them connect with language in their own way in order to help them in their studies, and also in their lives outside of school. Language can be a great asset in every aspect of our lives, and it would be my pleasure to spread the love of language and show students that they, too, can have a good grasp on using language to their advantage no matter what the situation.
