Shining light of calculus solves Natures darkest mysteries

Sydney tutor in Calculus, Engineering, GAMSAT, Maths, Physics, HSC Mathematics all levels

One to one tuition in the comfort and convenience of students home or public place such as library

The first lesson is a trial lesson . If satisfied with quality the parent/ guardian must book another 5
lessons and pay in advance.
The fee is based on $60 per hour

My contact number is 0412 995 933.

During first lesson:

- I ask questions and assess quality of answers and time taken to answer questions.
- Show how to correctly answer questions from high school teachers or other sources (e.g., textbooks).
- Explain fundamental concepts in detail and using examples show how fundamental concepts are used to answer specific questions from school or tuition.
- Emphasise the importance of showing all steps legibly and in logical clear order.

I set homework based only on topics and examples discussed during tuition.

I focus tuition on future examinable topics as outlined in exam notification sheet. I find out the date of next exam and topics and prepare appropriately.

I have a working with children check approval from NSW government.



David ...0412 995 933
Former HSC marker in Physics.

High school Mathematics, Physics and Science teacher of ten years teaching years 7-12
I have been tutoring for 21 years.

For year 7 - 12 students fee based on $60/hour of High School or IB (Mathematics , Calculus, Physics)

If the student finds that the first lesson (charged at half price) is good
and wishes to continue
then future lessons are booked and paid for in advance up to a maximum of 10 lessons.

Students should prepare a list of questions and concepts causing difficulty to be discussed during
tuition...this will enable me to determine the students academic level and plan an appropriate program of learning.

By offering one to one tuition, this allows me to focus my full attention on the student and to answer any questions they may have without delay.
As there are no other students present, the student need not feel embarrassed asking questions.

My emphasis is to explain the fundamental concepts in mathematics and physics in simple terms and ideas - whenever reasonably possible using existing fundamental laws to deduce more laws, equations and rules. When students understand they begin to learn and enjoy the subject.

** Please note that Year 11 students will follow the revised (2020) Physics syllabus which is far more difficult and of higher standard then the previous syllabus. It is far more appropriate in terms of scope, depth and choice of subject matter for students wishing to study Engineering or Science at a university level.

Homework is given at the end of each tuition session and is based on what has been taught in tuition and at school.
All steps needed to find solution should be written legibly in clear logical order.
Students should study written examples and explanations given in tuition before attempting homework which should be attempted as soon as possible after tuition.

Students should not spend too much time correcting a solution if the answer is wrong as this can be frustrating and demoralising .The attempted incorrect solution should not be rubbed out. It is better to let me find the source of error which in many cases is a very simple mistake.
