Melbourne Tutor in VCE Further Maths, VCE Maths Methods, and High School Maths (8-10).
I have extensive tutoring experience and have supported many students to achieve academic success in high school maths, VCE Further Mathematics/Methods, VCE Psychology, VCE Legal Studies, and Law School Subjects (LLB and JD).
I enjoy working with students that need assistance building solid mathematical foundations in early to middle school, with a view to helping them succeed in VCE mathematics.
My tutoring style involves ensuring that my students understand problems through a variety of learning methods and perspectives. In addition to helping students with the current subject matter covered in their classes, I provide additional instruction and exercises to close exisiting gaps in the student's knowledge and problem solving skills. I also encourage and provide ongoing support and coaching between sessions to ensure that my students are kept engaged with the material.
My professional experience in Neuroscience involves working at Harvard Medical School in a neuroscience laboratory (MRI imaging) for two years, as well as completing two summer internships in neuroscience at the National Institutes of Mental Health and the Stanley Brain Research laboratory.

I also completed seasonal clerkships at top-tier firms (Intellectual Property), and worked as a volunteer solicitor in a community legal service for a year.
I also have considerable general experience in teaching adults and kids of all ages, as I was a part-time tennis coach for 3 years, in addition to having worked as a volunteer assistant tennis coach for the MIT women's tennis team while I was in Boston.
