Matching Students and Tutors

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 had no knowledge of physics when I began studying with Irena, but I am amazed at how quickly I progress with her clear, structured and patient approach. Irena has organised the GAMSAT content into a logical sequence that allows me to build on what I learn every week. I benefit greatly from the textbooks and practice questions she provides to give me experience in GAMSAT-style problems. Irena’s explanations are very clear and she is always happy to repeat herself, so I feel comfortable asking as many questions as necessary. I recommend Irena whole-heartedly to anyone looking for a kind, knowledgeable and well-organised physics tutor!"
