Hi, my name is Jonathan. I graduated from high school in 2020 with an ATAR of 88.80. This year I’m am studying Biomedical Science at Monash University.
I am able to tutor Unit 3/4 Chemistry (40) online, which is the subject I most enjoyed. My aim is to inspire students to enjoy their study as well as gaining results they are happy with!
I enjoy the challenge of studying and especially Chemistry, where every topic I studied was interesting and engaging. Last year, completing VCE largely at home was quite difficult but I was fortunate to have LearnMate tutors to guide me and help me with topics as I tackled them. This meant I could really benefit from the enthusiasm of the tutors and the 1:1 teaching and it has inspired me to pass this benefit on to other Year 12 students. I would like to not only help students achieve the ATAR they want but also to really enjoy and be interested in their subjects.
During my Biomedical Science course at Monash Uni this year I will be gaining further Chemistry knowledge (doing Chemistry electives in addition to core Chemistry) and will have deeper understanding to tap into if needed for more in-depth explanations.
I enjoy explaining Chemistry concepts, using diagrams and explanations and going over ideas quite a few times if students have trouble understanding. During my lessons I will run students through each concept in detail first before guiding them through different types of problems and then allowing students to solve them on their own, assisting them if they continue to have trouble. I will also provide students with tips and tricks on how to deal with particularly tricky problems. We would work from past paper questions from week 1 and focus on perfecting exam techniques.
My availability will be quite flexible (dependent on my uni timetable) and I’m happy to tutor on weekdays after school and on Sundays as well. I will also be happy to answer questions between lessons if needed. I’m friendly, approachable and because I’ve just completed VCE, I’m very aware of the challenges students face, especially during Covid times.
Also, I’m happy to have feedback from students to make sure I’m helping them effectively and will keep asking them as we go for their feedback and adjust my tutoring to that.
