Hi, my name is Kelvin and I am currently studying Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Medicine at UQ. I graduated as the Dux of All Saints Anglican School with an OP1 (ATAR 99.75 equiv), coming first in my cohort for Maths B (now maths methods) and Biology, and second for Maths C (now specialist maths) and Physics.
Since graduating, I have helped over 20 students gain confidence and improve in their studies through private tutoring. I now specialise in tutoring Maths but I can also occasionally assist in other science subjects if needed by the student. I can also tutor Japanese (I am fluent in it and achieved a VHA10 in Japanese).
What makes me different?
There is more to tutoring than knowing the content and explaining it well. What I believe makes a good private tutor is being able to understand the core issues in the student’s knowledge—as well as study habits—and tailoring the student's learning during and after the session.
I take a proactive approach in my tutoring in that I:
(1) identify the areas the student needs to work on by testing them with practice Qs
(2) guide students on what needs to be done between each session and help plan their time
(3) ensure that students have actually learnt and are able to apply concepts with practice Qs/exams
Discounted group sessions
I offer discounted group sessions at the following rates:
- $30/hr for a group of 3 students
- $20/hr for a group of 5 students
I encourage those in year 12 who are preparing for their external exams to consider the group sessions, as the longer sessions are beneficial to cover all of the practice exam questions I set each week.
Privately tutored highschool students for 2 years (approx. 10-15hrs/week).
Class tutored for Year 12 Specialist Maths Class.
