Hello! I’m Nicola – thank you for taking the time to read my profile.
I tutor years 7 to 10 Science, Maths, Biology, and Chemistry, as well as years 11 and 12 Biology, Chemistry, and Maths (General, Essential, and Methods).
I am a second year Science student at the University of Queensland, majoring in Plant Science. I am endlessly fascinated with the scientific world and have a passion of sharing this fascination and growing understanding with others.
I have achieved the following grades in the relevant subjects at UQ:
Course Type Course Code Grade
Maths MATH1040: 6
Statistics STAT1201: 6
Chemistry CHEM1100: 6
Biology BIOL1020: 5
Biology BIOL1030: 6
Biology BIOL1040: 6
I have had a colourful journey that has led to Science. I graduated high school in 2009, completed a film degree by 2013, all the while working at optical companies where I became a staff trainer for Queensland in a Nation-Wide Optical Chain by 2018. It was my journey through the latter that unlocked my passion for teaching, Maths and Science.
Through my high school years, I did not place value in these subjects as I do today. I am here to encourage you away from self-imposed limitations, and towards the self-empowerment of taking control of your learning. I understand these subjects can be daunting, however they become interesting when you’re able to discover your learning styles and the particular learning strategies for each subject.
