Experience

I have been teaching and tutoring now for close to 6 years from primary school students all the way up to university and PhD students. I love helping people learn because seeing that light bulb moment when a student understands a difficult concept or when we reach a goal together is invaluable to me.

I accept group bookings with a small increase in my hourly rate per person, so, the more you have the cheaper per person it becomes!

I am available weeknights from 3-9pm and weekends from 9am-6pm (Subject to availability) and can tutor you at your home (dependent on your location with an additional fee), at a mutually beneficial location, my home (in Prahran) or at Sunshine Hospital (Western Centre for health Research and Education).

My lessons will be structured around your requirements and your level of skill. I have a vast amount of resources that I can use with you, or we can use your material to work through. If you are a university student, I have huge range of lectures notes and tutorial materials that I have delivered in the past, and for students that are of primary and secondary level, I also specialise in creating fun and engaging lessons that use activities to help you learn! No more rote-learning or writing copious amounts of boring material. I pride myself in finding out how you learn, and tailoring our lessons to you, so you learn faster!

Qualifications

I am currently completing my PhD in Paediatric Oncology with Vic Uni, Melb Uni and the Australian institute for musculoskeletal science; investigating how chemotherapy can be improved with novel peptides in order to better treat childhood cancer, and improve the survival rates and quality of life of childhood patients.

I completed my B.Sc (Honours) in Biomedical Sciences (GPA=6.97, final Honours score 92) with VU receiving the most outstanding honours student award, most outstanding student alumni award and outstanding individual student leadership award. For my teaching, I am currently a sessional academic tutoring and lecturing students in biomedical and health sciences, as well as supervising honours students through their projects.

Over the past 6 years, I have tutored all walks of life, from primary school children in maths to mature age university students working through their bachelor, and post-graduate degrees.

"Throughout the years of being at school I have always found bioscience to be one of my most weakest subjects. James has helped me throughout the semester to ensure that I do well to pass the subject. He always had patience to explain things over and over when I did not seem to understand. James is a great tutor!"
