English, Drama and History

I’ve been teaching the HSC English syllabus since 2012 and in that time have finished my Master of Arts specialising in English Literature at Macquarie University. I’ve taught countless students of all ages and abilities, and have a fine eye for tailoring lessons to each student’s personal temperament. My goal is to inspire students to realise their limitless potential, whilst communicating with parents every step of the way.

Teaching is about listening to your student, and tailoring the lessons according to their personal needs. English helps to unlock creativity and the many modes of human expression. If my students walk away with improved confidence, sense of direction and an invigorated passion for learning, I am one happy tutor!

English, Mathematics, Tutoring for Special Needs Students

I’m currently in my seventh year of teaching English and Maths to primary and high school students. Being a recipient of English and Maths private tutoring during my high school years has inspired me to give back to students in a one-on-one setting. My background in Psychology and disability care has also encouraged me to extend my services to special needs students.

I strongly believe that tutoring is more than helping a student pass a test or write an essay. It’s also about ingraining skills, habits and techniques that will help them to learn, think critically, and solve problems throughout their school years and long after. This will help to ensure they’re well equipped to go out into the world and achieve great things. My goal is to attend to each student’s academic needs so that I can help them get there.

Mathematics, Sciences

I graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Chemical & Biomolecular Engineering (Hons) and proceeded to work for a well renowned beverages company as a Quality Assurance Engineer. I have been a private tutor for more than five years and the passion in making my students achieve their very best potential is what has kept me drawn to it. I try to help my students find a newer perception towards concepts and areas they previously found difficult. Knowing that no single approach is the right one for all individuals, my lesson plans are tailored according to what is required and who I am tutoring.

In my free time, I enjoy drawing and reading and I have also recently discovered that I can cook, so I have been trying that as well. I am grateful to be given the opportunity to invigorate a renewed passion for areas in Mathematics and Sciences that were first deemed impossible.

English, Legal Studies

I graduated from the University of Sydney in 2011 with a Bachelor of Health Science/Masters of Nursing. During my time at Sydney University I was accepted into the Golden Key International Honour Society, which is open to students whose academic results fall within the top 15% of their cohort. I have been working as a registered nurse in aged care since 2012, and in 2013 I started studying a Bachelor of Laws degree at Macquarie University. In 2016 Macquarie University awarded me as the highest achiever in an International Environmental Law unit. I expect to complete my Bachelor of Laws degree in early 2018 and hope to continue academic studies in both law and nursing in the future.

I believe that when teaching it’s important to explain complex information to students using words and examples that they can understand. It is also about providing students with the framework needed to be able to critically evaluate topics and consider their practical significance in day-to-day life

Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry

I challenged the norm by obtaining a BSc in Science Education from one of the most prestigious universities in Africa, and have been teaching science subjects such as Mathematics, Biology, Chemistry, and basic science at the Primary and Secondary school level since 2013. I possess a strong track record in motivating my students to achieve high levels of academic excellence, and have experience teaching students from diverse cultural backgrounds. I have the ability to break down complex concepts to make them easier to understand, and tailor lessons to meet the unique strengths and weaknesses of each individual student.

I teach with a high level of dedication and commitment because I believe in the teaching philosophy “Care first and Impact knowledge”.

I am an Engineering graduate with first-class honors, as well as a master’s degree from one of the world’s top-ranking Universities, the National University of Singapore (NUS). I have more than 15 years of teaching experience ranging from high school to tertiary students. With my in-depth knowledge of the curriculum for the Australian Secondary School Certificate (HSC, VIC etc) and IB Diploma, and alongside my experience with the Cambridge GCE O’Level and A’Level, I believe I will be able to help draw out the full potential of each student I work with.

I have the ability to teach a culturally diverse student population, while developing individualised plans for students at different learning levels. I also pride myself on my ability to improve student numeracy and maths levels through innovative activities and lesson plans. I possess a strong track record in improving test scores and teaching effectively.

I am a good listener, a good motivator, and caring, especially to those who are having difficulty in coping with their studies. “Nurturing Talent – Sharing Success” is my personal motto while transforming the dreams of my students into reality.

I graduated from the Australian Catholic University with a Bachelor of Nursing in 2017 and currently work as a registered nurse. I had been a tutor for nearly two years back home in Nepal, where I taught students of different age groups with various levels of learning ability. My tutoring specialised in Science, Mathematics and primary-level English.

For me, being a tutor does not simply mean assisting students with homework or preparing them for tests. I believe tutoring should be tailored to meet each student’s needs and requirements, and should guide them towards reaching their full potential.
