Hi everyone! I’m Jonathan and I graduated in 2019 with a 99.95 ATAR, Perfect IB 45 and as Dux of Carey Baptist Grammar School. I am currently studying Doctor of Medicine at Monash Uni. As part of completing the International Baccalaureate I attained the maximum score for all my following subjects:
7- Physics HL
7- Chemistry HL
7- Economics HL
7- English A Lit SL
7- Chinese B SL
7- Maths SL
A- Theory of Knowledge
A- Extended Essay in Economics
For me, high school wasn’t a walk in the park by any stretch of the imagination. However, I was fortunate enough to have a fantastic tutor to support me along the way. Having experienced firsthand the immense benefits of tutoring, I also wish to offer you the invaluable guidance and advice that having a tutor gave me.
I have past tutoring experience and will be predominantly covering content for IB subjects, TOK and EE where I will teach you exactly what you need to do to score highly in the IB. Rather than just memorizing, I’ll help you understand difficult topics and content in an intuitive and personalized way while providing useful skills and study habits.
Lessons will also include strategies on effective notetaking in class, techniques for strong essay writing, analysis of question types, work throughs of past exams and breakdowns of high scoring exemplars. Moreover, I will be reviewing all your IA’s and essays and providing constructive feedback on what is already excellent and what you can do to improve. I can help you elevate your work to achieve the results you want, whether it be developing a level 3/4 essay into a 5/6 standard or refining already high scoring scripts to secure those coveted 7’s.
Having studied the IB which is renowned for its daunting workload, I understand getting the results you want whilst also balancing other commitments can seem like quite the impossible challenge. However, as an IB graduate who’s experienced all this, I can assure you that with the right study techniques and strategies it is definitely achievable!
I am also eager to help students Years 7 to 10 who are looking to get a head start and will be tutoring Unit 1&2 VCE subjects as well. I previously accelerated VCE Maths Methods and Chinese Second Language before studying the IB. For those looking to take the UCAT, I obtained a very competitive score in the 96th percentile and will likewise provide you with key techniques and mentoring for success.
