Hi there, I'm Edwin! ATAR 99.65. I am currently studying the Doctor of Dental Surgery at The University of Melbourne and was fortunate enough to have received an offer for the Doctor of Medicine at MelbUni too. I graduated from the B.Biomedicine at MelbUni, with High Distinctions in university Maths, Chemistry, Physics and Biology.

Congratulations to all my students! Having tutored over 200 students throughout the past 5 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:
2022 cohort: Highest student = 99.6, Median ATAR = 96.65 with 1 IN 5 STUDENTS SCORING 99+ ATARs
2021 cohort: Highest student = 99.2, Median ATAR = 96.5
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 recent years, 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, Mac Rob, Haileybury, Camberwell Grammar, Melbourne Grammar, Melbourne High School, Mentone Girls Grammar, Box Hill High, Vermont Secondary College, and many many more.

I am hosting fully prepared lessons across the 2023/2024 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 2024 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! *SPOTS ARE LIMITED*

My subjects:
- Chemistry (46)
- Physics (46)
- Biology (43)
- Maths Methods (47)
- Specialist Maths (42)
- Further Maths (42)

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.

"Before I joined Edwin I was a relatively weak student, averaging around 70% in most of my science and maths subjects. I felt very discouraged and I couldn't seem to improve my scores no matter what I did! One of my family friends recommended Edwin's tutoring to me, so I decided to give it a shot! It was the absolute best decision I made in my VCE journey. I was not only able to further my understanding, but he also helped me fill in gaps that I didn't know existed. Edwin was able to point out my mistakes and lead me in the right direction with patience and kindness. Ultimately, I received scores above 45 in all the subjects he tutored me in. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!"
