STATE RANK CHEMISTRY (7TH) NSW - 99.90 ATAR. CHEMISTRY ONLY TUTOR.
Sydney tutor in Chemistry
(1 student review)
Hey! My name is Kevin Zhang and I graduated from Sydney Boys High School in 2017, with an ATAR of 99.90 and a state rank of 7th in Chemistry. I'm currently a final year at Western Sydney University studying Medicine (MBBS).
I specialise in teaching ONLY CHEMISTRY, with over 4 years of experience and proven results from students. I can travel ANYWHERE within the Sydney region. Rates begin at $80/hour for 1-on-1 lessons.
I have developed a time-tested method of studying chemistry that ensures not only is your time spent studying effective, but it ensures you retain all the material you learn at the start of the year down the line by the November HSC without any lapses in memory. I have spent over 1000 + hours through constant lessons and feedback from students in developing and refining notes, questions and flashcards.
Looking forward to your messages!
Feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 0408218652.
UPDATE: Previously limited to 4 students due to my commitments with medicine. I have now completed my final exams and can take on many more students, and am taking the rest of the year to focus on tutoring. Contact me for your spot!
*********I understand that it is now late and the HSC exam draws closer. Given that my exams are over, I am able to do a crash course on chemistry available whenever the student is free. Contact me for further details.********
//FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
----Are the notes updated for the new syllabus?----
Yes! The notes are updated with continual review depending on what the newest HSC exam entailed.
----Do you tutor other subjects?----
Unfortunately not. I only tutor Chemistry. Specialising in one subject allows me to develop the best resources and help students get the highest marks possible. Rather than other tutors developing a set of notes and using those notes to tutor forever, I have written my own notes and questions, constantly refined these notes over four years and written over 2000 flashcards for these notes. Doing this for more than one subject is unrealistic.
----What is the lesson plan?----
Each lesson starts with review of the relevant notes pertaining to a certain HSC dot point, followed by testing and explaining the hard HSC questions related to that topic.
At the end of the lesson, flashcards (using Anki) will be sent to students for their own review and will be checked each lesson to ensure the student is up-to-date. Using this method, students understand the content and how to answer hard questions.
----What are Anki flashcards?----
Anki is an excellent way to study - it ensures what you have learnt sticks with you one year down the line without fail. It is a method of spaced repetition used primarily within studying medicine, but I have adapted and perfected it for chemistry.
I have premade flashcards using the best method (i.e. cloze deletion) to ensure that after the lesson, you have a VERY easy method of learning and retaining the information (not just reading the boring notes) while applying it to questions so that you never forget the content learnt. An example is in the sample section!
These flashcards have supplementary information from myself added for extra guidance, and the relevant section from the notes pasted underneath to ensure they can be your primary study resource throughout. The notes are also provided to you for extra reading if you have time.
----Why Anki flashcards?----
Studying is beneficial when its done. But it's hard to find that motivation to study. Studying would also be done more if it was easier. Anki makes re-reading the notes I have prepared a lot more digestible and easier. If you've ever had a problem studying, the methods I teach you will make those disappear. Study SMART, NOT hard.
