HOW I WORK:
Something awesome I hear quite often from my students is, 'This is so much easier than I thought". In addition to having key examination knowledge and techniques, what's equally important for students is also learning and eventually knowing HOW to study VCE Biology.

From my experience, the amount of information schools provide can be taught differently - it can be taught in a way that allows students to remember and digest huge amounts of information more efficiently and easily; emphasizing what's actually important to know, what questions will actually come up on exams, and how to interpret questions, write concise answers and apply relevant facts to get full marks.

Part of studying for any VCE subject is also understanding each person's unique learning method. Students will be able to obtain information more efficiently and be more productive in their studies. Within a shorter span of time, students often find they've practised and achieved more than their peers. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT (as a starting point):
✔ Compiled notes: These concise notes cover the most important details, skills and exam techniques. They have had amazing reviews and would be given to my students for FREE.
1. Relevant notes for each session and all the theory that needs to be understood
2. Exam questions (that are relevant to changes in the new course)
3. Exam and study techniques

✔ Probably the most important thing for students who find Biology difficult is to provide content that breaks down large amounts of information and let them know exactly what students need to understand:
1. What facts they have to know
2. What types of SAC/Exam questions there will be.
3. How to answer those questions
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
GENERAL INFORMATION:
✔ I am available 24/7 for any questions and also provide help outside the normal sessions. Students have said this was helpful especially right before going for SACs or the exam. I attempt to reply to emails or texts immediately but promise within 24 hours. ✔ Mainly tutor at Prahran, Blackburn and State Library of Victoria

I offer tutoring in the following subjects:
✔ VCE Biology 3/4
✔ VCE Biology head-start preparation (This is for students planning on learning VCE Biology 3/4 next year and would be to prepare ahead of time)
