Wollongong tutor in Biology, Chemistry, General Science, Human Biology, Physics
I am a qualified, practising and dedicated teacher and tutor, with experience (since 2010) teaching High School Science including HSC Physics.
I have a passion for working with teenage students to help identify their strengths and weakness and build on these to achieve their potential. I enjoy extending students who are Gifted & Talented, as well as supporting students who find Physics a most challenging and complex subject.
As a teacher and physicist, I understand the full requirements of the syllabus and how to support students to apply the rudiments to the most academically demanding questions. I have a strong focus on problem-solving and checking techniques, so I can guide students to develop their own strategies and solutions to become independent learners (I don't do students' homework for them).
The students I have tutored have achieved strong academic results.
I have Accreditation at Professional Competence with BOSTES and continue to attend relevant conferences with the Board of Studies and the NSW Association of Science Teachers to ensure my knowledge remains current.
My working with children certificate is current.
While my passion is in HSC Physics, I also teach Science from years 7-10 and am available to tutor Science years 6-10. My professional manner and a large range of learning resources can be used to efficiently scaffold learning to improve the educational outcomes for Science students aged 12 and up.
The email below is testament to my success
I received my results for Physics this morning and I am sure you will be glad to hear I got in the Distinguished Achievers List! I got 96 in the HSC exam and my rank of 6th at the end of the course meant I got 92 for the assessment part of the HSC, resulting in an overall mark of 94 for Physics.
I just wanted to send you this email to say thank you for your help throughout the past year. When we first started I remember showing you my results in the final Prelim exam of 68%, and now my final HSC mark is 94. I wouldn't have improved this much nor achieved these kinds of results without your assistance, so thank you for that, and otherwise I wish you the best of luck with your future tutoring!
