My name is John and I have been working with students for the better half of the past decade. I help my students to gain confidence and develop pride within their study habits and academics. Tutoring initially started out as a part time job for me, but over the years, it has devoloped to become my sole focus and area of expertise. This has largely stemmed from my enjoyment with helping students achieve those 'eureka' moments and helping them find their own joy within study.
I have helped students completely change their perspective on studies. For some of my students, they initially came to me absolutely hating mathematics, but ended up going on to finish the HSC with maths as one of their strongest subjects. I have also helped student's who were struggling to even maintain a near pass mark, to consistenly achieve marks of 80%+ over the course of a few short months.
I am able to effectively help my students as I am aware of the key 'sticking' points of each topic, that are crucial for a student to understand and comprehend properly for them to engage and learn at a much deeper level. This is a requirement for anyone aiming to achieve a band 6 mark as the learning curriculum requires a comprehensive understanding of topics and is thus examined this way in school and HSC examinations. My knowledge has been cultivated of my past years of tutoring and my exposure to a broad range of school exams (ranging from the top selective schools, private schools, and independent exam providers). I have also previously worked at a top tutoring centre and was heavily involved with the development of mock examination material.
My classes are run in a methodical RTDAP Method:
R - Review. The first section of the class is dedicated to review the prior week's lesson and run through any questions from the homework/ class material.
T - Talmud. An oral learning method cultivated from Babylonian origins. The new topic is introduced and discussed heavily at length with the student. Oral discussion stimulates much more deep learning and memory recall attribution which is a much more effective mode of learning when being introduced to a new concept.
D - Demonstration. Live demonstration of examples are worked through step by step, explaining the thought process behind each step and providing key tips for common mistakes.
A - Apply. Student's apply their learning to introductory questions and are slowly exposed to more difficult questions as their competence increases.
P - Perfect. Challenging questions designed to stretch and stress-test the student's understanding are vital for the perfection of topics.
Review assessments are also performed at regular intervals throughout the semester to check-in on the student's progress. Classes are also taught with my own original material that leverages the top teaching material available in the state.
As my availabiities are extremely limited, I can only offer very few 1 on 1 spots as my timetable is largely comprised of group classes.
If any of the above is of interest to you, please do not hesitate to contact me at 0426 966 466. Due to my schedule, if I am unable to take your call, please leave me a message and I will get back to you as soon as i can!
