Graduate Mathematician and Computer Scientist
Brisbane tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Engineering, Maths, Programming, Statistics, Web Development
QUT graduate with a high distinction in Applied Mathematics and Computer Science. Four years tutoring tertiary, high school and primary. Three years of industry experience in software development.
With the current one size fits all schooling model it's understandable that some of us find learning tedious. This is why I've invested a large portion of my time and money into learning about all the possible ways we can learn. Along the way, through many hours of tutoring and courses, I've learnt how to utilise your learning strategy to work for you not against you. Now, I can confidently say, I know exactly what it takes to re-kinder the enthusiasm we all have for learning!
Tutorials are structured to meet your individual learning preferences and course requirements. Group sessions welcome!

Here is a sample of the subjects and students I've tutored with the achieved outcome.
Large number of tertiary students for programming and mathematics in courses such as CAB202, MXB102 and advanced stats.
Moha (Cab202): First time programming and was failing the unit half way through semester. After many hours of white boarding, Moha was able to not only understand programming logic and syntax but achieve a distinction in the unit!
Grace Simpkins tutoring (primary and high school):
Demi (Year 12 Maths C and B): On a B average, Demi and her mother wanted A's for the OP cut off into Med. Within one semester she was on A's in both Maths subjects.
Tristian (Year 10 Maths): Was failing Maths and believed that he wouldn't ever "get it". By the end of the year he was on a B and more importantly enjoyed learning Maths. The turning point occurred when he realised that learning can be hard but trying and learning is okay - there's no such thing as failure!
Henry (Year 2 Maths and English): Henry was considered too hyper to sit down and finish his homework, only wanting to play soccer, fair! We leveraged his interest in the sport to help him learn, leading him to create many learning focused games involving soccer balls, Maths and English. The result? His teacher noticed he sat still for longer in class and his Mother was significantly less stressed!
