Hi there, I'm Edwin! ATAR 99.65. I am currently studying a B.Biomedicine at Melbourne Uni, with High Distinctions in university Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology. Next year I will be studying the Doctor of Dental Surgery at MelbUni as well.

Congratulations to all my students! Having tutored over 50 students throughout the past 2 years, I have extensive experience helping students significantly boost their academic confidence. Here are a few statistics from students who have been tutored by me:
2020 cohort: Highest student = 99.15, Median ATAR = 96.2
2019 cohort: Highest student = 99.2, Median ATAR = 95.1
Most importantly, all of my students have successfully have been able to study their desired course - including extremely competitive ones such as medicine, dentistry, and double degrees. Furthermore, various students have also been able to score scholarships for their desired course.

Despite all the complications that have arisen throughout 2020, almost ALL my students have boosted their SAC scores from D/C/B's all the way up to consistent A's and A 's, with a few hardworking students even topping their cohort as rank #1 at academically competitive and prestigious schools such as Scotch College, MLC, PLC, Haileybury, Camberwell Grammar, Melbourne Grammar, Mentone Girls Grammar, Box Hill High, Vermont Secondary College, and many many more.

I am hosting fully prepared lessons across the 2020/2021 summer holidays which aim to give students a major headstart. This program has been extremely successful in previous years (all my top students joined this program) as it is designed to help students start off 2021 with a significant boost in confidence whilst having their workload and stress immensely eased. Feel free to give me a quick call/text to find out more and secure a spot on 0470 437 041!

My subjects:
- Chemistry (46)
- Physics (46)
- Maths Methods (48)
- Specialist Maths (42)
- Further Maths (42) *Raw scores

What is the secret to my personal success, and the success of my students?
I host jam-packed lessons for each of the aforementioned subjects, accompanied with a weekly booklet full of:
- tips & tricks (such as calc shortcuts or nuanced differences in particular command terms which many teachers are unfamiliar with themselves)
- past-exam questions, and all the sneaky variations of a question that exams will try to trip you up on
- and most importantly, explanation of concepts and theories in simple human English, none of that confusing jargon/terminology.

My teaching approach strongly encourages students to understand the content, rather than to simply memorise random facts/formulas. These lessons will fast-track you so that you're ahead of your school's timeline. As a result, you'll already understand all of of the content before you even start it in class.

I’ll also supply year 12 students with weekly practice exams starting from April-June so that you'll have OVER 6 MONTHS to begin nailing exams.

My lessons are tailored for students of all levels, not just those at the top end. As a testament to my teaching ability, two of my students from 2019 started the year off with mere 30% averages, but ended the year with 75% averages.

Furthermore, I've worked with another student who came to me at the end of 2019 who only scored a 40% on his end of year 11 exam. However, with my fun/silly analogies and high-yield practice questions, he was able to build up a much deeper and more conceptual understanding for all topics, enabling to climb up to the top of his yr12 Chemistry cohort for 2020.

"Edwin is a fantastic tutor! He has tutored my daughter for a variety of subjects including Units 1/2 Maths Methods, Chemistry and Physics. My daughter was initially a mediocre student before joining Edwin, and was relatively weaker in science and maths. After having joined him, her confidence, grades, and overall enjoyment for school and the above subjects have sky-rocketed. It's amazing that throughout year 11, she did not receive a single SAC score below 90%. I've seen him teach her and he is extremely patient and explains things in a really fun way that my daughter enjoys thoroughly. I cannot recommend him more highly enough!"
