Hello! Thank you for taking the time to visit my profile!
My name is George and I’m a recent SACE graduate (2015) who achieved an ATAR of 95.3 and am currently studying a Bachelor of Science (Advanced) at the University of Adelaide with a 6.889 GPA on a 7-point scale.
One of my proud achievements throughout Grade 12 include receiving straight A’s for all my subjects for the entire year. Overall, I scored a 19.2 for Mathematical Studies (achieving an A+ for the final examination), 18.8 for Specialist Mathematics, 18.2 for Physics, and 17.4 for English Communications. I also completed a Foundations in Chemistry course at the University of Adelaide for three semesters (2016) which covered grade 10-12, and first year university level Chemistry, with an average score of 18.6.
My success in Mathematics, Physics, and Chemistry comes from my awareness upon learning and truly understanding concepts and methodology behind answering questions; rather than just learning how to answer one specific type of question. As a tutor, I will be able to transfer this awareness and knowledge to my students in order to help them understand the notions behind certain questions and answer a variety of questions related to certain concepts; rather than just a single type of question.
In my opinion, what sets tutors apart in the Mathematical Sciences subjects is not their ability to show students how to do certain questions; but rather showing them the roots behind the questions and allowing them to understand the concepts behind the question. As a recent graduate and tutor, I can assure my students will be taught with the best methodology in order to receive consistently high grades.
I’ve also been on the other side of the tutoring community, and have experienced both engaging as well as just down-right boring tutors. Thus, I am now able to apply my experience as a student in order to make my lessons as engaging as possible; usually done so by applying the content into real-life scenarios. This will allow the student to see there’s a point to the work, as well as allowing them to look at the page with incentive rather than being taken aback at all the numbers and equations.
I am available 6 days a week from Saturday-Thursday for students of all grades, and will accommodate to my students’ weekly schedule. I charge $55 per hour and can tutor students within 10-15 minutes of Welland, SA 5007 as well as from Adelaide University. Please feel free to enquire about a tutoring session below! I look forward to meeting with you.
Quick results seen in my daughter’s physics!
