Hello everyone,

My name is Akash Stephen Thomas and I am taking a gap year in university (Planning to continue with part time study) in order to focus on my passion in teaching/tutoring students (Currently about 35 students a week). Throughout my life, I've had a fond interest in the STEM subjects, not just the plain monotonous use of formulaic expressions, but to look deeper and think wider on how they came to be and how they can be relevant to the real world.

Across all my years in high school and primary school, maths and science have been my best subjects and I absolutely enjoyed sharing and teaching students on the wonders of each of them and how important a skill it is to learn for our future. I've tutored many of my friends and siblings informally and due to my relative success, I have been encouraged by them to start a formal tutoring availability to other students who may need that extra help and determination.

Aside from the numerous high distinctions I have received in maths Olympiads, Australian Maths Competition and the ICAS maths, I was also rewarded the dux (Top student) in my year 10 cohort at Melbourne High School. Additionally, I had received academic awards from years 7-8 (Balwyn High) and years 9-11 (Melbourne High) consistently placing me in top portion of students in my year level. Additionally, I have been a recipient of the high distinction award for Geography competition in year 10 and recipient of multiple distinctions/high distinctions in ICAS science and chemistry Olympiads. My VCE results are as follows: 46 scaled methods, 46 scaled chemistry, 43 scaled biology, 47 scaled English language (ATAR: High 98's).

However, my biggest achievement so far has nothing to do with any of my results. At the start of 2020, I was tutoring 2 students a weekly, whilst studying fulltime in university. Within 2 months, that number turned into 20 students a week (Students leaving from institutions, such as James An, Kumon and other private tutors to come get tutored by me). This made it quite difficult in univeristy and made me realise my passion in teaching, which resulted in myself taking a gap year and putting my efforts into teaching and starting a business out of it. Currently, I'm lucky to tutor around 35 students, have an Ed-Tech company called Cenablecare, with entities set up in Melbourne and Bahrain (50 students in Bahrain) and always on the lookout for more students.

Cenablecare has one simple motto, the skill of ENABLING students to learn themselves. This enabling/assistance/facilitation along with a student's personal work is what will drive their results to the skies.

Overall, I'm very flexible to follow your school syllabus course, extending your knowledge and getting ahead of your classmates and I intend to create my own problems and find challenging problems that aren't usually found in a textbook to constantly keep you ahead. Homework will be provided every lesson and the willingness and dedication to complete the work will get you very far with your work ethic and marks!

- Methods units 1-4
- Chemistry Units 1-4
- Biology Units 1-4
- English Language Units 1-4 - Years 7-10 English/Math/Science
