Hi! I’m Prerana and I am very excited to offer personalised one-on-one or group tutoring for VCE Chemistry (42) and Biology (48)! I am a qualified tutor with 4 years of tutoring experience under my belt.
I graduated in 2014 from Glen Eira Secondary College as the DUX, attaining an ATAR of 98.05. Alongside my VCE subjects I also completed Extension 1st year Biology (UMEP) at University of Melbourne in which I scored a High Distinction (86%). I graduated from The University of Melbourne with a Bachelor of Biomedicine (Honours) in 2018.
My Tutoring Approach
Biology and Chemistry are both extremely engaging subjects and while they are difficult at times, it is certainly not impossible to perform really well in them. Students who struggle in these subjects often require a little bit of guidance and need to maintain a strong work ethic – an attribute I’ve always valued and intend to instil in my students.
I strive to cater to every learning style and my tutoring approach is tailored to your needs. I aim to be very flexible & patient in my approach; I can go over concepts as many times as required.
During our classes I will be guiding you and helping you with the following:
- Explanations of difficult concepts
- Understanding and application of concepts
- Practice questions tailored to your needs
- Correctly approaching and structuring answers to exam style questions
- Techniques for SAC and exam preparation
- Correcting practice exams and providing detailed feedback
- Effective time management strategies for SACs and exams
I also provide extensive out-of-class help (via texts, emails or social media) at any time during the day or night for any spur of the moment questions or doubts.
You will also have access to my library of detailed and comprehensive revision notes and other supplementary materials free of charge!
I understand the value of a satisfactory tutor and I know that I would be able to deliver a very high standard of tutoring while engaging my students in a fun filled atmosphere. Making sure my students fully grasp conceptual knowledge and be able to apply that knowledge is always my top priority!

Ilaria’s chem tutor Prerena was great! She explained the lesson well was very through and above all engaging! Ilaria really likes her!
Prerana was a very good at explaining the concepts. She repeatedly ask some questions and this helped Shehanee retain it. She also provided her with notes which she found very useful. So far, we are very happy with how the sessions are going.
She is amazing. I don’t know what I would’ve done without her explaining things to me in a way I can understand. Thank you so much.
