About Tom

  • Learn and achieve your maximum potential with an experienced, engaging and responsible tutor who scored an ATAR of 99.90!

Hello there! I sincerely appreciate your precious time in visiting my profile. 😊

Little bit about myself first 😊: I am a university student who worked with LearnMate in the past two years to assist the students in achieving the best of their abilities. I attained raw study scores of 50 in Further Maths, 49 in English EAL, 49 in Psychology, 48 in Chemistry, 47 in Biology, 42 in Mathematical Methods and 40 in Specialist Maths. I achieved an outstanding ATAR of 99.90 through VCE (Dux of The Geelong College in 2017), and I am currently studying The Bachelor of Science as part of the high achieving Chancellor’s Scholars Program. After lots of formal tutoring experiences (10+ students every week) and interactions with many teachers, I truly understand what defines a great tutor and the responsibilities as a tutor to motivate the students in achieving. It is the importance of connecting with the students and caring for their needs that inspire me to provide the best tutoring experiences.

Back in the high school days, I’ve had invaluable experiences through informal tutoring with my high school friends on a weekly basis, which they find extremely helpful and inspirational as I not only assist them with various subjects, but also provide confidence in their studies. I was also honoured to be a house prefect, culture prefect and the badminton captain of the school which provided enriching experience on organization and leadership. My goal is to spark the passion within the students and guide them towards success.

2018 and 2019 had been absolutely amazing, I’ve worked with more than 30 students in the past two years and I wholeheartedly enjoyed every single moment with them. Their different strengths and weaknesses constantly inspired me to discover how they learn best, and to customize my lessons accordingly. Most students improved an average of 15% on their results and the best improvement was from <50% to straight A’s around 90% in chemistry. All my year 11 students are super excited in continuing with me in their final year of high school which I found to be a huge achievement.

I am tutoring the following subjects: Chemistry, Psychology, and Mathematical Methods. I can also provide some degree of help with Biology, Further Mathematics, English EAL and Specialist Mathematics. Feel free to contact me anytime for more details. 😊

I am kindly offering assistance through phone calls, texts and emails. So, if there are any questions, whether it is about study or general concerns, feel free to contact me any time and I will respond without hesitation. I will have lots of customized notes for every chapter, relevant exam questions, key concepts and other useful materials whenever you need. Also, I will have detailed worked solutions ready as soon as possible after I receive any questions, your time is precious to me.

I live in Point Cook, so you are welcome to come to me, or I can come to you. I am more than happy to travel so whichever is more convenient for you. I am available 7 days per week; please see the times when I am available to tutor you. Your convenience matters a lot to me, so I will try my best to work out a time that suits you.

I also hold a valid Working with Children’s Check, and a valid Victorian Driver’s Licence with a car.

I am only charging $50 per hour and $10 for travel (if applicable). I am also planning to conduct group lessons! Contact me today, let’s work together and achieve the best of your ability. You will surprise yourself!

Tom is easy to understand and a great explainer.

Amanda Current Student

Tom brings in extra little helpful tips and methods to remember certain content as well as teaching important details about the topic.

My daughter leaves the lesson with a greater overall understanding of her subjects. I believe she learns more with Tom, compared to with the teacher at the school. She enjoys her lessons with Tom and I can confidently say that Tom has a huge impact on Amanda’s learning.

My tutor was very helpful at explaining difficult concepts that we had learnt in class, which enabled me to comprehend the lessons much better.

Overall, my tutor helped me a lot in a subject I found very difficult and made it easier to grasp.

Joyce Current Student

Explains difficult concepts using analogies that help retain those concepts.  Has an excellent set of notes. Tom is also very organized, he knows  which area of the course the student is struggling and how to improve that efficiently and  effectively.

He helped me heaps throughout year 12. He was always available for extra lessons or any additional questions. Provides useful exam and study tips. Explains difficult  concepts very clearly.
