(2 student reviews)

As I have 30+ years teaching, tutoring & examination marking in all Year 11/12 Maths/Physics subjects, I can comprehensively evaluate an individual students skills & weaknesses.

I have taught Year 11/ 12 Physics and Maths at such schools as.
St Hilda's Anglican Girls School - Mosman Park
Penrhos College - Como
Sacred Heart - Sorrento
Kolbe Catholic

I will supervise, assess and improve test/exam skills.
Teach all curriculum requirements & then extend conceptual understanding of all of the "tricky" skills/concepts. Skills that are used by exam creators to sort the 80% student from the 99% student.

Assign specific revision / homework / study
supervise & monitor curriculum pace and workload.

I always assess each student individually and design a program to fill in their missing knowledge/concepts whilst enhancing their skills with their ongoing course to maximise results.

"I changed tutors from a 3rd year Uni student for my year 11 studies to Ian for my year 12. He was recommended to me by my cousin who pointed out having a teacher was a huge difference. I noticed the difference in tuition immediately. From the first lesson he planned out the next month - covered my first two weeks of theory and managed to identify concepts I stuggled with from year 11. He made sure I understood all the concepts before expanding on them. Gave me a huge amount of materials to read and questions to tackle. He really does have a mountian of resources, past exams/tests with marking guides and the examiners comments were really helpful. Having a teacher look over my shoulder and correct every little mistake I was making was frustrating at first but it didn't take long before I really noticed the difference in how my exam answers improved and how the little specific things I changed managed to take me from a average test result of 55% to an 85% on my first test. That 85% was my lowest test result all year. His help organising my study and monitoring my progress through the course really helped me plan around my other units in the same way. I was always ahead and ready for assessment clashes. The difference in pressure I felt compared to year 11 was immense. Year 12 Physics was a breeze thanks to Ian's help. Nothing was ever a bother and to be honest Ian is a really funny science geek, he will have you in stitches. The 2 hour sessions once a week flew by and looking back now, we would get more done in those 2 hours than my teacher could cover in 2 weeks of classes. REALLY REALLY RECOMMEND HIM!!! Thanks Ian"
