Hello! My name is Jess and I have recently graduated from North Central College (USA) with my Bachelor of Science with Honours in Biology. I spent my childhood years absolutely fascinated by the life of plants and animals in the pond of my backyard, which is where my passion for study of life began! I have four years of experience conducting biology research, I have assisted teaching in a biology lab and I studied “abroad” for two semesters at La Trobe University in Bundoora.
Biology is a content-heavy subject and can appear daunting. However, that does not have to be your experience! Rather than spending hours of your time on memorization, we can work together on strategies to study smarter. These skills will allow you to achieve your best study scores and still have time to devote to your other subjects or hobbies!
I watched my students develop into academically strong and articulate individuals in my past role as a university biology lab assistant and my top priority is to work together with Year 11 and Year 12 students to unlock their academic potential and be successful in VCE!
I am familiar with the 2017 VCE Biology curriculum for Units 1/2 and Units 3/4 and am enthusiastic about extending my passion of the wonders of biology to my students!
I have an engaging and patient approach to tutoring and aim to guide students to develop the skills to:
- organise and understand key concepts
- improve critical and scientific thinking
- articulate written responses
- maximize multiple choice question performance
- understand how scoring is broken down
- feel confident going into each assessment!
My services include phone and email support throughout the week for any questions that may arise, as well as supplementing notes and resources that I have prepared for each tutoring session.
Availability and Location
I am available Monday through Friday after 4:30pm and on weekends. I occasionally have some flexibility with weekday mornings.
I live in Carlton North and I am available to tutor from my place, a local library or I can come to you within surrounding areas or the CBD if accessible by public transport.
I offer private tutoring for only $45/hour with a free first half hour of the first session! This includes additional support via phone and email throughout the week, learning resources from each tutoring session, and transport costs!
I hold a valid Working with Children Check.
