ExperienceI have over 8 years experience in tutoring in Melbourne so I am familiar with the current syllabus for:
-University Foundation Chemistry courses: Deakin SLE 133, Monash CHM1011,1022
- I teach students in Primary, Secondary and Tertiary courses (Prep - VCE - Uni)
- Many of my students perform well in school and my senior students achieve great marks in VCE.
The tuition fee includes access to learning materials and practice exams. I understand that every student learns differently so my teaching is personalised and I always use easy to understand analogies to explain concepts. I back my teaching with notes that I have developed over the years and provide topic tests to keep track of student progress.
My classes are focused on:
-Strengthening understanding of current course material
-Motivating students, goal setting and providing guidance to improve study habits
-Highlighting potential pitfalls and common mistakes. Highlighting commonly examined/typical test questions
-Accelerated learning - giving the student the best chance to perform well
-Developing exam technique - systematic approach to problem solving to maximise your test scores.

My teaching philosophy:
I believe all students can do well in mathematics and chemistry and it is merely a combination of:
I always try to generate interest in the students to providing real examples of where mathematical techniques can be applied to daily life namely, finance, construction and engineering.
I have worked with students from varying abilities from those who are struggling to those who are looking for a challenge. For students who struggle with mathematical concepts I have assisted them to improve their marks by breaking down problems into simple step-by-step solutions. I lead students through:
• Identification of the problem
• Identification of relevant problem solving technique
• Practicing the steps of the technique
For students that want to get ahead, I have a full set of resources to facilitate accelerated learning complete with practice test papers and mock exams to ensure that learning is focused and progress can be measurable.
