Hey everyone, my name is Alex Karathanassis and I am currently studying Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne. After finishing VCE, I realised that I didn't want to waste the countless hours of study put into gaining and mastering knowledge of the subjects I took, so I decided to begin tutoring in order to pass on that same knowledge to my students. Throughout school, I was always interested in maintaining a high level of academic performance based on a deeper and wider understanding rather than just the plain memorisation of content.

I have just graduated from Balwyn High School with an ATAR of 99.35, with the following results: 42 scaled English Language, 46 scaled Chemistry, 47 scaled Physics, 44 scaled Methods, 52 scaled Specialist and 46 scaled Further. Additionally, I was awarded the 2020 Balwyn High School unit 3/4 Physics award for the highest average SAC score during my final year (96%). I also sat the UCAT exam and achieved a 97th percentile (3120/3600).

As of this year, I am looking for an opportunity to share not only the wide range of knowledge I have gained within my VCE subjects, but also to let students discover concepts and strategies in order to perform at the top academic level and achieve the marks that they desire. I thoroughly believe that the key to success in VCE is to maintain a healthy but intense study ethic throughout the entire year. The ATAR ranking isn't just about knowing the content - it's a measure of who works the hardest.

As a recently graduated VCE student, I know how tough it is to balance multiple demanding subjects whilst aiming for top marks. My lessons are designed such that you get ahead of your school study timeline while also training you for assessments and exams - something that many schools forget to do. With my help and expertise, I guarantee that your results will improve, however, I also aim to help students realise the hard work that is required in order to reach the top.

Overall, I am flexible to follow your school's study timeline, but I also believe that accelerating and extending beyond your normal schoolwork to get ahead of classmates is a key factor in improving your academic results. I write my own weekly notes that will aid you to not only discover and learn new concepts, but also allow you to consolidate and review those concepts, helping you to retain and eventually call upon this knowledge in SAC's and exams. With months of tutoring experience, I will ensure to influence your academic capability and understanding.

I currently offer the following subjects:

- VCE Physics units 3/4

- VCE Specialist units 1-4

- VCE Chemistry units 3/4


My prices are as follows:

- $40 per hour

A trial lesson is always provided at half price and a referral policy is present!

Thanks, Alex



I have over 2 months experience tutoring VCE Physics, Chemistry, and Specialist Mathematics, as well as training for the UCAT. This includes not only teaching but also writing and compiling weekly notes and example questions to help my students learn, then reinforce their understanding of each core topic they face in their subject. Having recently completed VCE, I understand the challenges that students face in school, and I am therefore able to help them overcome these challenges and excel in school.


I graduated from Balwyn High School in 2020 with an ATAR of 99.35, with the following results: 42 scaled English Language, 52 scaled Specialist, 44 scaled methods, 46 scaled Chemistry, 47 scaled Physics and 46 scaled Further, making me very qualified to teach these subjects. Additionally, I have been the recipient of an academic award every year since 2015 at Balwyn High, as well as the 2020 Balwyn High Physics subject award for the highest average SAC score in units 3/4. I also achieved a 97th percentile in the UCAT exam in 2020 and was invited for a first round medicine interview at Monash University. Throughout my years at school, I have also received many distinctions in competitions such as ICAS English, Science and Maths.
