Hi!

I have been tutoring students for the past 5 years as a tutor and lecturer at Victoria University and University of Melbourne. I have ample experience with one on one tutoring and specialise at 'at risk' students (those that are falling behind) and at pushing top students to get into the the high 90%'s. All of my GAMSAT students who have stuck to my strategies have achieved their goals of achieving scores above 60, with dedicated students achieving well into the 70's. All my students who I have trained for medical interviews have been offered places!

These are some of the university units that I can tutor you in:

Medical Interviews
GAMSAT / UMAT
Research Paper Writing
Scientific Writing / Assignments / Lab Reports
Anatomy of the Trunk
Anatomy of the Head, Neck and Back
Functional Anatomy Human Physiology (All years)
Medical Biochemistry
1st year Chemistry and Physics
Human Biology Paramedicine (Science and medicine based theory)
Nursing (Science and medicine based theory)
Nerve and muscle physiology
Advanced renal and cardiopulmonary physiology
Immunology
Pharmacology
Medical Ethics
And many more in the biomedical and clinical sciences... Just email me :)


I can also tutor Primary and Secondary in:

All maths and science up to year 10
Year 11 and 12 Biology, Physical Education, Psychology, Health

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, mainly in the fields of biological and physical sciences. 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!

My availability varies but we can organise a time to suit and I can tutor at your home (dependent on your location with an additional fee), or at a mutually beneficial location.

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 docterate of medicine with Deakin university whilst concurrently completing my PhD in Medical Research (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.

Some examples of my publications can be found here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5385327/
and here: https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s00280-016-3045-3

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 science to VCE students through to university students of all ages working through their diploma's, bachelor's, and post-graduate degrees.

"First of all I'd like to send my greeting and thanks to James who was my tutor for last two weeks. James is friendly, patient and qualified. My own experience, I promise, I felt confident to do my genetics exam. Before meeting James I was like don't want this exam. Now, I'm waiting the next one on 31 of May this year. In a simple words, James worths every penny you spend with him. Although English is not my first language, James would come down to your level and build your knowledge until you reach the stage you want. Thank you so much again James. Regards Fahd"
