I’ve been a freelance tutor for high school and university level mathematics and physics in ACT since 2012. As well as tutoring, I have taught first year undergraduate physics at ANU since 2016. I’ve also taught as a substitute at ANU College, working with final year high school students.
I’m passionate about science and science outreach. Through outreach with ANU, I inspire members of the public and high school students to get involved with physics, explaining the role of my own research, ANU’s current research foci, and the current state of physics research at large. Since 2015, I’ve volunteered with the National Youth Science Forum (NYSF), engaging with final-year high school students to experience real-world science and inspiring them to pursue a career in STEM subjects.
My approach to tutoring is tailoring an individual approach for each student, working with them to build confidence. I do this by grounding our work in what they already know – often more than they themselves realise – before building on the lessons they receive in school. I work with each student to establish their preferred learning style, factoring in any additional needs.
I’m proud of my track record of retaining students for multiple years as they progress through their education. This often extends to other students in the same family, as well as referrals to family and friends.
I completed my VCE in 2011 with an ATAR of 95.35, and graduated with a BSc (Hons) in Physics at ANU in 2016, and an MPhil in quantum electrometry in 2019. I’ve begun my PhD at RMIT, continuing my research into quantum sensing applications.

My daughter is really enjoying her sessions with Mitchell. He is positive, encouraging and has lots of patience. He explains things really well and in different ways and is helping to build her confidence too. He listens well and is working thru the things she wants addressed, she says it feels really practical and helpful. tks
