I tutor because I love maths, so I try hard to develop enthusiasm for the subject with my students. This has led to some great results - students of mine have gone on to study Medicine and the Bachelor of Commerce at UNSW as well as Aeronautical Engineering at the University of Sydney, and Physics at the University of Oxford. I have also taught Selective School Placement Test candidates who gained places at North Sydney Girls High School and Fort Street High School, as well as successful scholarship candidates for SKEGGS, Meriden, Trinity College, and Santa Sabina College.
I have extensive experience in tutoring mathematics at all levels, but I especially enjoy the work in years 9 to 12, and preparation for the Selective School / High School Scholarship exams. With HSC exams so vital these days, I am very happy to provide tailored, intensive tuition for students taking any of the HSC mathematics papers. Extension 2 students are very welcome! Additionally, I teach university mathematics in the areas of calculus, linear algebra and statistics.
I also offer GMAT preparation courses for those wishing to apply to take an MBA at one of the world's top business schools. I myself scored 740 on this test (98th percentile), and completed my MBA full-time at the AGSM (UNSW/ University of Sydney, with an international exchange at ESADE in Barcelona). Furthermore, I am happy to provide advice on the preparation of MBA applications - I was the senior manager at the AGSM with responsibility for admissions for two years.
Additionally, on special request I teach English as a second language, which I taught in Portugal, Spain and and Egypt for over 10 years (I am an avid linguist myself and have a good knowledge of Portuguese, Spanish, Italian, and German).
The service I offer is one-on-one. This allows us to work on those areas that present the greatest challenges to each individual student. In my view, maths is just as much an activity as an 'object of study', so I lead students through as many examples as possible, trying hard to increase their confidence. Leading up to examinations, the focus turns to completing questions from past papers and the development of examination strategies.
I am available on both weekdays and Saturdays (Sundays too in an emergency!). I am based in Annandale, but I work in the wider Inner West area too. I can sometimes visit students' homes during the week (my rates include my travel time and expenses), although some students find it more convenient to visit me in Annandale. All classes on Fridays and Saturdays are in Annandale.
If you think I can be of help, please call me on 0409 841330.
I began tutoring in 1989, while completing my Masters Degree in Pure Mathematics, and have consistently taught maths since then. I also spent 10 years teaching English as a Second Language (Portugal/ Spain), providing me with extensive exposure to students from a wide variety of backgrounds.
