I tutor because I love maths, so I try hard to develop enthusiasm for the subject with my students. My students are of all levels of mathematical ability, from the mathematically challenged to the natural genius. I take equal pride in being able to help all my students progress, irrespective of ability. Unlike many tutors, I focus on maths (all levels) and English/ problem solving skills (primary level)

I have taught many students preparing for the HSC. Students benefit by being guided to the activities that will optimise the use of their time (for example attempting past trial exams before their actual trial exams). Often the learning of such study skills can be applied to the study of other subjects too. 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. Extension 2 students are very welcome!

Frequently my students have classes with me for many years, often starting in year 5, and finishing in year 12. It's important to develop a good working relationship with students, and a consistent structure to lessons allows students to focus on productive activities. Students in year 5 and 6 are often concerned with being optimally prepared for their future High School studies. There are also many students who take the NSW Selective High School Placement Test, and students of mine have gained places at James Ruse AHS, North Sydney Girls HS and Fort Street HS. Others have become successful scholarship candidates for Newington College, Meriden, Trinity College, SKEGGS and Santa Sabina College. I particularly enjoy teaching writing to my primary school students, which is an important component of any scholarship application.

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 and scholarship applications - previously I was the senior manager at the AGSM at UNSW with responsibility for admissions.

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.

My classes are currently mostly delivered online using Zoom. I use a professional graphics tablet in conjunction with the Zoom whiteboard. I have a FTTB (fibre to the building) internet connection to guarantee problem-free connectivity (90Mb/s download / 36Mb/s upload speeds). At the end of each class, students receive a copy of the whiteboards created during the class, as well as screenshots of any work done directly onto an online textbook. I'm also happy to deliver face-to-face classes in Annandale, but my online classes have been so successful that the online delivery mode will continue into the future.

If you think I can be of help, please call me on 0409 841330.
