(14 student reviews)

I have more than 16 years experience tutoring students with different academic backgrounds, and learning styles. I believe all students can learn the fundamentals of Physics and Maths with the right approach. I am very passionate about helping students achieve their academic potential by making the topics interesting and enjoyable. I do this by relating the topics to real world examples and conducting small demonstrations to encourage active learning. Adaptability and student engagement is fundamental to my teaching, and if I find that a student is not responding to the content at the level that is required, I will use another approach.

I have also successfully prepared students with varying backgrounds for Physics component of the GAMSAT Exam. Many of these students have never studied Physics before.

For my GAMSAT students, I have prepared Physics lessons covering the units required for the GAMSAT exam. This includes a thorough explanation of each topic, before solving the different types problems which may arise in the exam. I will teach different strategies that can be used to solve each problem, and assist you in applying them. Only after my students are able to independently solve the physics problems, will I move onto the next concept. Most of the problems I will use are the same style and difficulty level as the actual exam, so we will also discuss strategies to maximize use of time.



I have 9 years of experience teaching Primary and Secondary School Maths, and
Secondary School Physics (including IB Physics Standard and Higher level, AP Physics
and SAT Maths and Physics) in International Schools.

I have more than 16 years experience tutoring year 5-12 students Maths and Physics as
well as university students Biomechanics, Mathematical Modelling, Physical Aspects of Nature, Engineering Physics, Physics of Exercise, Theoretical Basis of Audiology, Radiation Physics and GAMSAT- Physics section.

"Irena was an amazing physics tutor for the Gamsat exam. She was very organised in going through the course. In each lesson, she would go through the concept in simplistic terms and even used small, practical experiments to explain the practical applications. She made concepts interesting by how they applied in my day to day life. She would then demonstrate the types of questions that may arise from each concept and explained really straight forward approaches I could use in correctly answering the questions through applying the formulas. After showing me a step by step approach, she would help me attempt some questions independently and showed me where I was making my mistakes and how to correct them. One of the things I really appreciated about Irena was her flexibility in teaching. Since I have not studied science in many years, I sometimes had trouble understanding the concepts. When I had such difficulties, she would change her teaching approach until I did understand the concept. She also made sure to spend extra time on areas where I was weak. As I had gone through some bad tutors before finding Irena, I cannot say enough about her teaching skills. I would definitely recommend her for anyone studying for the Gamsat exam, especially those who, like me, have never studied physics before."
