Hi, this is Batu ,soon to be your new tutor.
I have been in Australia for more than two years now. I’m Turkish and 26 years old. I’ve actually started wanting to be a teacher when I was at 5th grade but one thing let to another and made a mistake. I chose the dream job over my dream job but it’s never too late I guess 🙂
Got my high school degree from an Anatolian Teaching school then got into one of the best technical universities in Turkey (Middle East Technical University) by scoring 537/600 (by placing as 6th thousand in 2.5 millions of students who took the uni exam in 2012) and started studying Mechanical Engineering.
Then I realised I was not happy about studying engineering and started tutoring as I have always wanted. I tutored about 20-25 students in 6 years from different grades. Some of them for about a year, some of them from 7th grade to 12th for 5 years.
I can say I come as a package deal if we’re talking about from 6th grade to 11th because I’ll probably be able help out with most of the subjects they will need tutoring for from all the science subjects to maths.
For me teaching is one of the most satisfying experiences that one can have and there’s just so much more to it than just teaching. Starts with building trust with both parents and the student because anyone can teach, but the important part is shaping the student to be willing to learn. Otherwise watching videos from YouTube could do all the work for free but if that was the case you wouldn’t be here to find a tutor that can actually help.
I am not a qualified teacher. What makes me different is having the skills to shape the conditions and making the student ready to receive the info that most tutors already have but can’t pass on to the student. I am not always gonna be on your side, I am most likely to be on the student’s side at the beginning so that I can set everything and become someone they actually trust-listen. After that, anything can be thought.
If that sounds like what you’re looking for, give me a call and we can take it from there.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I understand due to Covid-19 situation in-person tutoring is not ideal but I don’t think an online tutor can get you more than YouTube can so I would prefer to tutor in person but we can figure something out if we need to.
Right now I live in Bondi Junction but I’m planning to move to Mosman in couple of weeks. I do have a motorbike so travelling would not be an issue if it’s not too far from where I live.
I will usually be available all the time during this pandemic so we can set up something anytime you’re available.
And the hourly rate is gonna differ according to the subjects, the location and the student. We can talk about this over a meet up if you decide to hire me as your new tutor.
