I'm Michael, and I am not a recent high school graduate. I completed year 12 in 2009 with a terrible ATAR (or ENTER as it was called) then took 5 years to complete a 3 year Bachelor of Science at La Trobe University (physics major with maths minor).
I would expect you're now asking yourself "why should this guy be our choice for tutoring?". Let me try and give a good answer:
Since graduating in 2015 I have learned a great deal on what it takes to get motivated and stay motivated in order to succeed. I will tell you upfront that there is no getting around hard work, but that doesn’t mean studying has to be a chore. If we can identify a purpose for doing well in your final years of highschool, then I am confident it will lead to continuing success as you go forward into whatever it is you want to do.
What I’ve learnt can assist students greatly in VCE physics and mathematics (years 11 and 12). I am confident results will not only go up, but a positive attitude towards life long learning will develop. My hope is that this attitude will not only help students succeed at getting their best ATAR score, but also their future academic pursuits.
Since 2017 I've been studying at Swinburne University doing a double degree in Engineering (Robotics and Mechatronics) and Computer Science (Software Design). In that time I've maintained a GPA of 3.7 (essentially two High Distinctions to every Distinction), ran multiple group projects successfully as team leader, did a 12 month research placement with the department of defence, and most recently participated in the 2021 Study Melbourne Leadership Labs 4Impact in which our team achieved a top 10 placement in pitching our social enterprise concept for improving education quality amongst youth in Australia.
It is never too late to realise your potential.
With me as your tutor it’s not just about getting better grades, but in developing a fundamental understanding of the concepts that will help beyond any one test or exam. My competency in physics and mathematics does not come from memorising equations, but knowing how to develop those equations, and If you can do that too you might not even need a cheat sheet.
I am no VCE success story, but I have the experience of learning the hard way and still achieving success. If I can pass this experience on, I know it will effect the way students conduct themselves towards their studies and success, both now and into the future.
