Hi! Thanks for taking the time to visit my profile.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science at the University of Melbourne, and in 2016 I graduated as Dux of Wesley College with raw study scores of Maths Methods (50), Physics (44), Specialist Maths (42), and a perfect 5.0 for Uni Maths (through UMEP). I was also top of my class for Methods, Physics and Specialist Maths for both Units 1/2 and Units 3/4.
I have a very in-depth knowledge of each subject (Units 1/2 and Units 3/4) and wish to pass this on to other Year 11 and 12 VCE students to help them achieve their very best. In addition, I have a very strong passion for Maths and Science, and I believe that this passion comes across when I tutor my students.
Many students and peers have commented that the textbook can be boring and disengaging, but my aim is to totally change that! As many students have different styles of learning that work best for them, I will adjust my teaching methods to accommodate for each and every student to ensure fun and efficient lessons.
I cater to all abilities and ages, whether you’re a top student aiming for high 40’s, a student who is falling behind and lacking motivation, or a student in Junior or Middle school looking to form a solid foundation in Maths and Science.
As your tutor, I will provide you with many tips, resources, and support to help you achieve the results you’re aiming for.
I am familiar with the current curriculum and offer the following resources:
- Sample SAC’s
- Past and trial exams
- Practice questions with answers
- Marking along with feedback and worked solutions
- Phone and email support 7 days a week
- Study notes and tips
Location, availability, and costs
I am currently available every day of the week and will do my best to accommodate my students’ weekly schedules.
I am based in Bayside and hold a valid Victorian Driver’s Licence so you’re welcome to come to me, or I can come to you – whichever suits. However, if travelling becomes a timely factor, a travel fee may be required.
I also hold a valid Working with Children’s Check
I am only charging $50 per hour for one-on-one sessions and $30 per hour (per person) for group sessions (2-4 students is best!). Please note that I offer phone and email support 7 days a week so I am more than happy for students to send me work in-between sessions if they need further assistance or have assessments coming up.
Please feel free to get in contact with me if you have ANY questions!
James is very professional, punctual and gets straight to the area my son needs a better understanding of. My son tells me he is really enjoying tutoring from James and feels a lot more in control of his maths after a session with James.
