Hi, thanks for visiting my profile! My name is Michael Alford, and I am a third year Chemical Engineering student at UNSW who has been tutoring professionally since late 2017. As well as tutoring HSC subjects, I am also a Teaching Assistant at UNSW where I help teach first year engineering subjects. I graduated the HSC in 2017, achieving an ATAR of 97.15. I attained band 6s in all the subjects I tutor: 93/100 in Physics, 91/100 in Chemistry, 91/100 in Advanced English, and 91/100 in Advanced Mathematics.
My high scores in these subjects indicate both my thorough knowledge of the subject matter and my ability to communicate this knowledge to answer HSC-style exam questions. I am eager to teach these skills and knowledge to current students, and provide them with a thorough overview of the entire syllabus.
My current engineering degree provides me with further knowledge of maths, physics and chemistry and feeds my passion for these subjects, enhancing the tutoring I am able to provide. I believe this helps me engage more strongly with students and help them develop their own passion for their subjects.
Success in the HSC is dependent both on a thorough working knowledge of the syllabus and being able to clearly and succinctly communicate that knowledge in an exam situation. I have developed these skills and am keen to share it with my students to ensure they can fully utilise their knowledge in their HSC exams.
I answer my students’ questions via email and text 7 days a week.
I am happy to tutor students of all ages, from primary to Year 12.
