Hey! My name is Joey and I am 19 years old!
I graduated from Carey Baptist Grammar School last year with a 99.40 ATAR and am currently studying a Bachelor of Design at the University of Melbourne, majoring in Architecture. I completed the IB program at School receiving 7’s in Biology SL, Spanish ab initio, Visual Arts HL and Maths Studies and 6’s in Literature HL and Psychology HL. I also obtained a score of 2/3 in Theory of Knowledge and the Extended Essay.
The people who know me would describe me as energetic, positive, approachable, patient and ultimately fun which I think are all essential characteristics to a successful tutor. I think that trust and a solid relationship between child and tutor is fundamental to a learning and teaching environment which works and gains results.
In my earlier years of high school I struggled quite a bit with maths however through getting good tutors and by changing my attitude to school I really began to thrive and ended up winning the award for Maths in year 12 and I think that this is one of the main reasons why I want to be a tutor. I know from personal experience how positive and successful having tutors for any subject at School can be and so I really want to help give students the chances that I got and which aided me.
