What differentiates John's teaching from other tutors : John is a mathematics lecturer at the Mathematical Sciences Institute at ANU. With over 10 years of teaching experience, John loves and cares about his students and their progress in maths, physics, and chemistry.
Many students who had experienced other tutors in the past agree that John's teaching especially helpful because he makes difficult concepts really easy to understand and interesting. He uses lots of everyday examples to help understand maths, physics, and chemistry. His teaching is concept-focused learning; he is passionate in making students really understand the concepts so that they can attempt worksheets on their own. John also helps with worksheet questions once students have enough understanding of concepts and his explanations are very clear and easy to understand. John always finds a way to make students understand fully the concepts and techniques behind each question.
Also, he has developed a lot of easy-to-memorize techniques so students can not only learn concepts well but also apply the rules to get through questions. Classification of concepts are also very important; John often helps to create a clear summary sheet with all the necessary information so that students can easily view all the concepts they have learnt and refresh their memory at one glance. This is especially useful if students often forget concepts.
His teaching is suitable for both advanced and weak students. Advanced students can learn from John by mainly going through worksheet questions while students who struggle currently can benefit from his concept-focused teaching.
