Hello, my name is Isaac and in 2016 I graduated with an ATAR of 97.25 (Gladstone Park Secondary College).
As a tutor I aim to create an educational, well-structured and ultimately entertaining environment so that you can succeed in your studies and achieve your dream scores, all while having a blast along the way!
Qualifications: I achieved a score of 45 for Further Mathematics and 41 for Mathematics Methods in 2016, while achieving the third-highest ATAR in my school. Currently I am studying maths at the University of Melbourne, which has further reinforced my proficiency in all levels of high-school maths.
I have experience teaching younger students from my time as a non-commissioned officer for St. John’s Ambulance, where it was my duty to aid in the teaching of first aid to young cadets. I take great joy in helping others improve and understand new concepts, as well as understanding the importance of practice to consolidate the fundamentals.
I believe that a good maths tutor does not simply recite formulae for memorisation and application, but helps their students understand underlying ideas and concepts. As a devoted student of mathematics I have developed not only skills in understanding and applying formulae and mathematical concepts, but also logical, critical and analytical thinking skills. I hope to impart these on my students, as these will not only allow them to exceed in any academical field but also in other aspects of life.
As a fresh graduate myself I can also relate to the struggles that VCE and other high school students face on a daily basis. I am familiar with the curriculum for units 1-4 of Further, Methods and Specialist mathematics, and I offer online and phone support 7 days a week should you be struggling with any questions. I also allow all students access to my notes and worked solutions for any practice questions I provide.
I hold a valid Working with Children’s check, and I am willing to take on any high school student. I live in the Broadmeadows area, however I am willing to travel to a place of mutual convenience in the North-Western suburbs or inner city, such as a local library or your house. I have a versatile schedule and will do my best to accommodate you in any way I can!
I charge only $42 an hour (with a $10 surcharge should travel times be extensive), so contact me today so that I can help you on the path to success!
