I am able to come to your home to tutor or I can tutor out of Griffith University Library.

Hi, my name is David Athan and I am an English tutor. I am also capable of tutoring several first year and second year subjects in the health sciences. I am a fourth year university student currently studying the second year of a Doctorate of Medicine at Griffth University, Gold Coast campus having completed the high achievers' accelerated Bachelor of Medical Science (BMedSci).

I also teach Clarinet at all levels having being awarded an Associate and Licentiate diploma of music in clarinet from the Australian Music Examinations Board. (A.MUS A, L.MUS A dist.). I love teaching students and I am a warm and personable individual who enjoys tailoring my teaching style to the person that I work with.

I achieved at ATAR of 99.70 in 2014 (High OP 1) and also gained highest possible scores in English and Music as well as top results in the sciences. I finished rank one in English, Literature, Biology and Music Performance during my high school in 2014 in Melbourne.

I was awarded the Brian Taylor Prize for Excellence in Biology (Dux of Biology 3/4), the J G Morrison Prize for Excellence in English (Dux of English 3/4) and the Sir John Latham Prize for Excellence in Literature (Dux of Literature 3/4).

I structure lessons based on the student's needs. I ask that you bring along past work to the first few lessons to allow me to discover strengths and weaknesses. I tailor my lessons to suit what teachers require students to achieve during their school assessments.

I have tutored in Gold Coast for three years - and am very well versed in the Queensland curriculum and system.
I enjoy teaching and marking students' work. All throughout this year, I have provided coaching to students online who have needed help with English and through many discussions at school and marking friends' work, I have perfected my method of tutoring. Each lesson is structured around your needs. On our first lesson, I would request that you bring past work and assessments so we can discern your weaknesses and rectify them for next year. I believe that in all subjects, it is possible to score very highly if you study effectively and I can definitely provide that advice to you.

If you are interested, I encourage you to give me a call so we can have a chat! Looking forward to hearing from you!

"David is a great tutor thats committed and dedicated to his students. His methods of teaching are brilliant and very effective. At the begging of the year I was worried that I will not be able to achieve high goals for English and sciences however with David's help, I achieved these goals. He is a complete professional at what he does. From a few lessons, I believed that I was already improving in the areas of science and english. I highly recommend David as your tutor."
