This service provides students with an additional, and most critically a different set of eyes to their teacher, parents or peers, review of their work. The importance of prepared assignments in all high school / university performance scoring systems is highly undervalued and often not complete by student's to maximise marks.

A little about me:

I hold both a Bachelor of Biomedical Science with Class I Honours and a PhD from Griffith University. I am currently completing my MD. My areas of research interests are in biochemistry, haematology and analytical science. Importantly have a real passion for all aspects of science and thoroughly enjoy and revel in seeing my students achieve academically.

My approach to Academic Coaching and Tutoring:

I structure sessions around the needs of the student, whether it be helping students to understand content or scientific principles or in the completion of assignments or other assessment. Wherever possible I challenge my students to think outside the scope of their content and tie together content from varying spheres of knowledge. This style of thinking is highly valuable to the QLD performance scoring systems, the Higher School Certificate (HSC) and International Baccalaureate (IB) systems.

My previous experience / success stories:

My students enjoy a vast array of academic success from improving their secondary school grades to maintaining high university GPAs. I have graduated five students from elite Southeast Queensland secondary schools with ATAR scores well above 99.00. (See reviews for a selection of student feedback).

No matter whether you are a high school student needing to cement the basics to a university student needing assistance with conceptualising advanced intracellular pathways - I can help.

Please give me a call to discuss your, or your child's, academic needs. I am a valid and current Blue card holder.

"My son was really struggling with chemistry in Year 11, after performing so well in previous years. Given his grades were solid in other subjects, we felt concerned there was just something missing in Chemistry. Evan was amazing at alleviating my son's fear of failing chemistry and really explained the concepts in a completely different way than his teachers. His ability to almost immediately recognise where my son was going wrong was incredible, having gone through 4 previous tutors prior to sessions with Evan. Not only did my son's grades in Chemistry improve but we started to see his results in both Biology and Maths increasing: he ended up topping both Chemistry and Biology at his school! My son is now studying Medical Science and still utilises Evan whenever he gets stuck with any concept!"
