(8 student reviews)

I completed my B.Sc. Special Degree in Physics from Sri Jayawardenapura University, Sri Lanka.

I offer tutoring for VCE students at Cranbourne , Mount Waverley and Dandenong.
I also do lessons online via a real time collaborative app.

In my 7+ years of teaching experience I have produced excellent results. Many of my students are enrolled in reputed universities.

I have also worked as a secondary school Physics teacher back in Sri Lanka.

I have a through understanding of the current VCE Physics syllabus. In addition to the completion of the syllabus I also help with homework, making summary notes, preparation to the SACS.

My lesson goes for 2 hours split into several topics from an area of study, each topic is a combination of detail theory explanation and popup questions to make sure each student is concentrating well and is on the right track understanding the core concepts.

Upon completing each topic, focus will be on application of the theory learnt with questions from the textbooks in class. Furthermore an additional homework sheets with exam type questions will also be given for more practice.

On completing an area of study, a test will be given to assess each student to workout areas that need more work.

Maximum in a group class is only 6-8 students so I can focus on them individually.

Unit 3&4 Extras
Discussion on questions from the ‘Checkpoints for VCE Physics‘ book.

Completion of the syllabus for units 3&4 is usually done by the end of July and then revision and past paper discussion will be carried out until the mid of November.

Minimum of 30 trial papers will be done and assessed individually before the exam.

Students have to maintain two books, one to do questions that I’ll be providing from recommended text books for VCE. The other one is to maintain a summary for each lesson along with learnings that should be carried forward on mistakes done on answers so they’re not repeated going forwards.

If a lesson is missed, students are encouraged to join on another group class that covers the same topics in that week.

I hold a working with children certificate.

"Dharshana has been an amazing and exceptional physics tutor. Her extremely organised vce plan and easy to follow classes,is extremely reassuring, as it would be hard to be stressed with the exam preparation Dharshana offers. Dharshana not only teaches the fundamental understanding of physics, but how to write and explain in exams these difficult concepts to a proper standard. With Dharshana’s plan I completed and went over with her about 25-30 exam papers. Dharshana’s kindness and care towards her students is truly inspirational, and I strongly recommend her to all students."
