Hi there! I’m Mike, an HSC Geography (94), Business Studies (95), English Advanced (91), Economics (89) and Japanese (86) tutor, and I’m here to teach you in an engaging manner so you can reach your potential!
Hey there, thanks for taking the time to visit my profile!
I graduated from Shore School in 2015, attaining an ATAR of 97.6 and gaining entry to a Bachelor of Commerce at the University of Sydney. I achieved this ATAR through hard work and diligence, and want to pass on my knowledge to Year 11 and Year 12 HSC students. Making sure my students follow the subject’s syllabus and understand the content is my top priority, which I believe can be achieved most successfully in a fun, but studious work environment.
I thoroughly enjoyed the subjects I wish to tutor, and would now like to help transfer my knowledge to HSC students. I am able to alter my teaching methods to account for all students, and help students to discover the method of study which is most effective to them. I have an energetic personality, which I believe creates a more interesting learning experience to what is sometimes perceived as boring.
What I offer:
Each HSC subject has its specific learning structures which allow maximisation of marks. My sessions involve help with concepts, as well as specific assistance such as:
- Extended response/Business report assistance and marking
- Practice multiple choice and SAQ’s
- Essay assistance and marking
- SAQ’s and skills
- Help with the discovery module
- Essay marking for Hamlet, Metropolis/1984 and WH Auden modules.
- Extended response marking
Part of my offering also involves phone and email support for 7 days a week, so if you have any questions throughout the week or need last minute help with an assessment, I can offer help. I will also provide extensive practice questions and tests, as I believe practice is one of the most effective methods of achieving HSC success. Furthermore, if you struggle with organisation, I would support you by providing study plans to allow you to work as efficiently as possible.
Availability and cost:
I live in the Lane Cove area, so we can meet in a library close to you, or at your place (travel times of over 30 minutes (by car) incur a fee of $10) – whichever suits you. I am available 7 days a week, but please enquire so we can find a time that suits you best. Individual sessions cost $50 an hour, with group sessions costing $30 per person.
Thanks for reading my profile, and contact me now if you want to start your road to success!
I have a valid Working with Children check and own a driver’s license.
