Hi, My name is Ruby, and I conduct online tutoring in VCE Psychology, VCE Biology and VCE Music performance (theory). I can also assist in preparation for the UCAT exam.
In 2019, I achieved an ATAR of 91.00 as a rural student from Gippsland Grammar in Sale, 3850. Regarding my subjects- I obtained a study score of 43 in Psychology, 37 in Biology and 37 in music performance, however, I received and A+ on the final exams for Psychology and Music theory, and an A on my final Biology exam.
This ATAR allowed me into a Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne, which I am currently studying as a first year student. This course has thoroughly updated and enriched my knowledge of Biology, and therefore has given me a deeper understanding of relevant VCE concepts that I may not have had at the time of taking this subject early in Year 11.
I continue to have a great passion for Biology, and I hope to move on to a Doctor of Medicine once I have completed my Bachelor’s degree.
Psychology has remained an interest of mine, and I feel that I am still up to date with my VCE knowledge. I have experience in tutoring VCE Psychology this year, and I feel that with the right attitude and commitment to the subject, I can assist any student in achieving a study score greater than my own in 2019.
Music also remains a passion of mine- I completed my grade 8 AMEB exam for Piano with Honours in 2018, and my grade 8 AMEB exam for Violin with Honours in 2019. I also completed my grade 5 Musicianship certificate with High Distinction in 2019. With this experience, I feel I am able to comfortably assist any student with tutoring in theory.
I also achieved a score of 2700 in the UCAT in 2019, which is in the 80th percentile, resulting in being offered an MMI interview at Monash University as a rural student. Preparing for the UCAT is tough on your own- especially when you have no experience with the exam. I am able to provide advice and practice questions for students wishing to complete this exam.
I believe that anybody is able to achieve highly in these subjects, with the right guidance and enjoyment towards their studies- my aim is not only to assist students with top marks, but also to develop their interest and joy in learning about these subjects.
