(8 student reviews)

PhD from Monash, tutoring calculus, linear algebra and statistics, including VCE maths subjects (Specialist, Methods & Further), with customized course materials using the most valuable resources from the university, covering all the essential areas of study plus useful tips for tests or exams at secondary and tertiary (undergraduate) levels.

Also providing structured training for teenagers to take Selective School exams, with cutting-edge materials and contents showing proven results of improving analytical and reasoning skills, plus test items aimed at consolidating basic elementary skills and knowledge.

My philosophy of teaching is simple—making learning maths fun! It is derived from years of research work in learning theories and analytics as a PhD in Monash, which confirms that sustained interest is the determinant of great performance. With this in mind, I've been improving my teaching methods over the years based on research work and experience from real-life teaching, coaching or tutoring, catering to the varied needs of students from different age groups and cultural backgrounds, using analytics and models to improve their academic performance, while focusing on the crucial role of mathematical thinking and reasoning in knowledge acquisition and problem solving, helping them build up their interest, confidence and capability for learning and self-learning, to nurture intrinsic motivation and create positive feedback loops for future success.

So if you are looking for an experienced tutor able to provide the most effective, up-to-date training contents, an expert of pedagogy capable of helping you develop an enduring passion for learning and self-learning, and/or a trainer who has excellent communication skills for delivering courses both in English and Mandarin, I am the one to meet your needs.

By the way, due to a number of work commitments, I am currently only available for tutoring in nearby suburbs.

"I am an international student from China. I saw jimmy's ads and turned to him just 2 weeks before the exams. This bilingual tutor was tremendously helpful to my economics and statistics. I was almost desperate when I turned to him for help. But soon enough he taught me a few special techniques of solving typical university exam items. As a matter of fact, he was so experienced that lots of test items were exactly what he had told me during the tutes. His advice was amazing and it worked so well. I got 2 A's for economics and statistics. His mathematical skills were wonderful! And I strongly recommend him to other students! By the way, I also received lots of help in written English from him which was so important for short answer questions. A great tutor indeed!!!"
