Hey! Thanks for considering my tutoring profile!
I completed my VCE studies at Glen Waverley Secondary College (GWSC) in 2015, graduating with an ATAR of 99.70. I achieved a raw study score of 48 in Biology, 47 in Chemistry and 49 in Methods. I’ve also been Dux of GWSC for three years. I am currently studying Medicine at Monash University.
I am extremely passionate about teaching Biology and Chemistry. I understand how students may find these content-heavy subjects difficult to understand or even dull and boring. I aim to bring enthusiasm and energy to tutoring lessons to help my students find a passion for their subjects. I want my students to feel engaged with the subject and avoid simply just “rote-learning.” Especially with Biology and Chemistry, it is difficult to perform well by only memorising content and having a superficial understanding. My theory is that with a genuine interest and a profound understanding, students will be driven to achieve their best scores.
I have a thorough understanding of the current curriculum for Units 3/4 Biology and Chemistry, and have an array of skills to teach, including:
- SAC and exam preparation
- Insight into the latest trends for exam questions
- Perfecting short answer responses
- Teaching scientific models, theories and concepts using a variety of resources (visual aids, personal diagrams, videos, prior high school material)
- Tips and tricks to when it comes to performing in the exam/SAC
If you are willing to hire me as a tutor, you will have FREE access my personalised notes (with helpful diagrams and visual aids), as well as practise questions and solutions. I also offer phone and email support 7 days a week, especially for those burning, last minute questions you may have before SACs and exams. I understand how sometimes teachers are not available 24/7 and even Google cannot provide the right answers. Hence, I always make sure I am available for my students.
Location, Availability & Costs:
I live in the Wantirna South area and am willing to drive to you, if you live in the nearby suburbs (15km radius). I am also able to have lessons at public libraries or Monash University Clayton campus. I hold a vaild Working with Children’s Check and Victorian Driver’s Licence.
