Hi everyone, I'm David and I'm currently in my third year of medicine at Monash University. I graduated from Trinity Grammar School in 2017 with an ATAR of 99.90 and a perfect study score of 50 in English and Further Maths. Prior to this, I received academic scholarship offers from 6 independent schools.
With two years of experience tutoring dozens of students, I tailor my sessions towards improving my students' weaknesses while reinforcing their strengths. I focus not purely on learning the content, but also how to effectively and efficiently target your exams to maximise your results. I offer tutoring for:
- VCE English
- VCE Maths
- VCE Chemistry
- Scholarship Exam Preparation - Year 1-10 Maths + English
Here are some experiences of my past students:
Lachie (Scotch College)
"My experience with Dave as a tutor for English, Further and methods has been incredibly useful. Not only does he understand my own ability and thus help me improve, but he is incredibly thorough in his teaching, resulting in drastic improvements in my essay writing and maths ability. Working with Dave has made my year significantly better and less stressful as I could always message Dave about any questions I had."
Brandon (De La Salle College)
"David tutored me for 3/4 English and Further Maths. He is very encouraging and will go to extended lengths to answer any questions after hours as well as provide plenty of learning resources to ensure you achieve your best! His one-on-one tutoring sessions are engaging with open discussions and will keep on persisting to teach you questions that are troubling until you fully understand. Couldn't have asked for a better tutor in the most crucial year of schooling. Gained a valuable friend!"
Carley (Mac Robertson Girls' High School)
"It has been an incredible experience with David as my Chemistry tutor for year 12. He is very supportive and is always keen to re-explain concepts I didn’t properly understand. In addition, he provides various learning resources that significantly improved my scores, such as relevant past exam questions during the lessons. He is definitely an exceptional tutor that I recommend!"
Timothy (Melbourne High School)
"There is no doubt in my mind that a great portion of my interview success is owed to David. I achieved a 99.10 ATAR and 89th percentile UCAT, meaning that an incredibly strong interview was necessary for me get a Monash Med offer. What I enjoyed most from our lessons together was not just learning, but also building confidence in myself. During our lessons, he always had so much to add to my responses to improve them. Towards our later sessions, I challenged myself and worked to reach a level where he would deem my response as acceptable, but the amazing thing is that he always had so much more to offer about what could be considered and said. This pushed me to aspire towards a level that I never envisioned, nor thought was necessary.
Come January 15th, I received a first-round offer into medicine at Monash. This was quite an unexpected outcome as I did not believe I was capable of achieving this, and it definitely attests to the amount of effort and preparation that David invested in me. Based on my personal experiences, I hope that future interviewees can take advantage of this opportunity to learn from David to ultimately put themselves in the best position when the interview comes around."
I offer both in-person and online tutoring. Please contact me through phone or email for more information or if you have any questions.
Currently I am a third year medical student at Monash university. I have been a tutor for the past 3 years and throughout that time have helped 15 students gain entry into medicine at Monash with an acceptance rate of 85% last year for the MMI.
