I’m Ben, thanks for taking the time to look at my profile! I have been tutoring for a year, and can tutor in all levels of English and Drama, most levels of Maths and Y11/12 Psychology. In Year 12, which I completed in 2018, I obtained scores in the A range for most assessments in these subjects and received an ATAR of 93.35. I am now at Flinders University studying to teach high school Maths and Drama. Having such a unique combination of subjects helps me be versatile in the way I teach and tutor and ensures that I’m always using both the creative and the logical parts of my brain. I am interested in tutoring and teaching because I love being able to share my knowledge and help others grow and have always had an appreciation for the empowerment education provides. In my tutoring, I am patient, enthusiastic and dedicated to bringing out the best in my students. While ensuring my student keeps up with their curriculum content, I also aim to build general skills that they will always be able to apply to their subject(s), and when explaining concepts and methods, particularly in Maths, I make sure my student knows not only WHAT to do, but WHY they’re doing it and HOW it works, as I believe having a deeper understanding is crucial to truly honing your knowledge.
MY LOCATION, COSTS AND AVAILABILITY!
I live in the Balhannah area and can easily get to anywhere in the surrounding Adelaide Hills, including Woodside, Mt Barker, Nairne, Bridgewater, Stirling, Crafers etc. As I go to Flinders University, I can also tutor in suburbs in that area, such as Bedford Park, Blackwood, Upper Sturt, Belair, Mitcham etc.
I am available Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, Thursday afternoon/evening and all weekend (excluding Saturday mornings).
Primary School to Year 9: $45/hr
Year 10/11: $50/hr
Year 12: $55/hr
For group sessions, the price per student is decreased by $5 for every student in the group.
(Please note these prices include travel cost and commission charged by LearnMate)
I also offer online tutoring through Zoom – a great way to keep your child engaged with school during these difficult times. Prices for each year level group are the same for online and in-person tutoring.
Thank you for considering me, I hope to be working with you soon!
