Sydney Tutor in Calculus, Engineering, GAMSAT, Maths, Physics, HSC Mathematics all levels
One to one tuition in the comfort and convenience of students home .
During first lesson assess students level of knowledge and understanding by asking questions,
Show how to correctly answer questions from high school teacher or other sources eg textbooks
Explain fundamental concepts in detail and using examples show how fundamental concepts are used to answer specific questions from school or tuition
Set homework based only on topics and examples discussed during tuition
Find out date of next exam and topics and prepare appropriately by focusing tuition on future examinable topics

Parents and students
One to one tuition is conveniently held at students home at a mutually agreed time and day (weekends and weekdays are available)so parents avoid spending the time and hassle of driving and delivering student to and from tuition held at coaching centre.
For year 7 - 10 students fee $50 / hour
For year 11- 12 students fee $60/ hour
The first lesson only is half the above rates
Students should prepare a list of questions and concepts causing difficulty to be discussed at
Tuition is more effective if done on a one to one basis rather then tutoring several students of differing abilities and different ages and school years at same time in a group
One and half hours tuition for a group of three students at a time implies that each student receives approximately 30 minutes of one to one tuition .This is in general insufficient to cover background and understand the scope and depth of various topics.
My tuition is personal as possible as there is only one person in the group and the style of tuition is tailored to suit the learning style of the student ,to explain how to obtain correct answer to school and exam problems and other relevent questions.
As there are no other students present , the student need not feel embarassed asking questions. By the way if a students asks many questions there is no increase in fees...if a students asks very few questions there is no decrease in fees.
My emphasis is to explain the fundamental
concepts in mathematics and physics in simple terms and ideas and whenever reasonably possible use existing fundamental laws to deduce more laws equations and rules.When students understand they begin to learn and enjoy the subject. It is difficult if not impossible to enjoy a subject which is only partially understood.It is more interesting and challenging to derive an equation rather then receive it without background explanation and derivations.
I have also prepared some Mathematics / Physics experiments and there is excellent agreement between measured and predicted value.The apparatus for demonstrating conservation of energy along a frictionless path...Lenzs law
...acceleration on a ramp of various angles has been specially built by myself.. low fricion pulleys are used
These experiments in Mathematics help students bridge the gap between theory and practise and better able to understand the more abstract theories eg Simpsons rule...integration and Simpsons and Trapezoidal rule to find area...Newtons law of cooling...maximum and minimum turning points
For physics the following experiments are available:
potential and kinetic energy...parabolic motion...period of normal pendulum and conical pendulum.measurement of earths gravity...conservation of momentum for elastic and inelastic experiments
. ..Galileos experiment. etc..how to calculate
radius and mass of earth using three simple measurements and Newtons Law of Universal Gravitation, Lenzs Law . One good quality accurate experiment is a very effective learning tool and a means to better understand fundamental concepts.
Please note that Year 11 students will follow the new revised Physics syllabus starting this year 2018
It is far more diificult and of higher then the previous syllabus.
Homework is given at the end of each tuition session and is based on what has been taught in tuition.
All steps needed to find solution should be written in clear logical order.
Students should study examples and explanations given in tuition before attempting homework which should be attempted as soon as possible after tuiition This should preferablybe completed no later then 4 days after tuition ( while concepts taught in tuition are still fresh in the mind)
Students should not spend too much time correcting a solution if the answer is wrong as this can be frustrating and demoralizing.
All homework should be written into an A4 sized notebooks . These must be kept as a record of topics covered and the depth of coverage.A summary book will be developed by the student which will incude formulas examples and an index of topics

Marking of HSC Physics examinations.
1) How to find the value of e from first principles
Must first understand the concept of e
given that f(x)= B ( power x)
Does there exist a value of B such that
df/dx = B (power x)
(Unchanged by differentiation) and if so find its value
Using the fundamental definition of differentiation
(f(x+h) - f(x))/h= ( B (power (x+h)) - B (power x))/h
B (power x)= B(power x)(B (power h) -1)/h
1 =( B(power h ) -1) / h
h + 1 = B (power h)
Log (h+1) = h Log B (must use base 10 ..why)
B = 10 power(Log(h+1)/h )
Let h equal a very small number eg 0.000001
B = 10 (power( (Log 1.000001)/0.000001)
B = 10 power 0.4329
B= 2.718 (approximately value of e)
I would appreciate any feedback on this derivation...whether you agree or disagree
2) prove that there is only one value of e ( using calculus)
3) given length of each side of a triangle find its area
( without using Herrons formula or trigonometry)
4) prove that the sum of the lengths of two sides
of triangle is greater then third side
5) prove that
a (to the power of zero) equals 1
You may use the rule
a (power m) x a(power n) = a(power m+ n)
6) a rectangular prism has 3 faces of area 7 , 8 and 9 square metres
What is its volume and length of each side
What is the length of each diagnol for each
face of the prism
7) a star has a radius of 42673 4896875 metre
If its radius increases by 3.5metre what is its change
in circmference and surface area.
8) how to balance complex chemical equations using simple techniques ( no guesswork)
9) show that a (to the power of zero) = 1
10) at the end of 6 months the price of a house
Increases by 10%
In another 6 months the price decreases by 10%
How much has the price increased over one year?
