Hi there! My name is Lap and I currently studying physiotherapy at La Trobe University (2015 ATAR cutoff — 98.65). I’m a very dedicated and approachable tutor, who aims to provide the best tutoring service for students who will be studying Mathematical Methods and VCE Specialist Mathematics. Not only am I here to maximise your study score, by providing additional assistance, but to also journey through VCE with you as a companion, who is willing to share his personal experience as a past VCE student. Hopefully, this will motivate you in your studies and prevent you from making the same mistakes as I did.
As I have mentioned before, this year I will be offering tutoring service for VCE Mathematical Methods (Raw 43 -> 47.5) and VCE Specialist Mathematics (Raw 40 -> 50.5). I consider myself to be a person who is competent and well-versed in these two subjects, because I thoroughly enjoyed learning them at school and had attained some degree of success in them.
Furthermore, the fact that I attended John Monash Science School, which specialises in science and mathematics means that I’m exposed to all areas of study in significant detail. I am fully aware of the new changes in the curriculum and will definitely cover those topics to the best of my abilities.
What I can do for you
How I can help you to DOMINATE your maths subjects:
⁃ Explaining key concepts in a concise manner
⁃ Providing an eclectic range of SAC and exam resources (Practice makes perfect; I will also teach you how to use your CAS calculator efficiently!!)
⁃ Helping you to avoid careless errors by teaching you my own techniques
Preparing you mentally for upcoming assessments and exams
For the past 4 years John Monash Science School has been top 5 in the state for VCE Mathematical Methods and VCE Specialist Mathematics, with almost one third of its cohort achieving a raw study score over 40 in both subject. These incredible results are obtained not by coincidence, but by students’ continuous exposure to exam-style questions or even questions that are above and beyond the standard of VCE.
So when the time comes for the real exams, students just breezed through them; just like professional athletes, who are well-trained, and mentally hardened. As a past student, I have gathered all the JMSS SACs from 2011-2015. Hopefully, this will expand your pool of knowledge and boost your confidence as a VCE student.
Other than JMSS SACs, I also have a stack of notes and a whole heap of other exam-style questions that I found extremely helpful during my year 12. Hopefully, my further assistance and notes will clear-up your misconceptions and help you grasp the important concepts in a more efficient manner. This will guarantee results in both your school SACs and also your final examination, which are both very crucial.
Minor mistakes are killers in all exams, especially math ones. Marks that you could have easily gotten were unfortunately lost due your carelessness. I have personally been a victim of this, but later on I found strategies to overcome this problem and was able to minimise the number of errors I make. Furthermore, have you ever under-performed in an exam? This is because you are probably stressed-out. I am here to alleviate this stress, by sharing with you my own ways of coping with stress to ensure your handwork does not ‘go down the drain’ at the end of year exam.

Yes, it went very well, thanks Dmitri. Mitch said Lap was great and explained things in a slightly different way which helped his understanding.
