Experienced Biology, Chemistry, Indonesian and GAMSAT S2 Tutor

Melbourne tutor in Anatomy, Bahasa Malaysia, Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, ESL, Essay Writing, GAMSAT, General Science, Human Biology, IELTS, Indonesian, Microbiology, Nutrition, Physiology, Psychology

I am an experienced tutor in Biology, Chemistry and Indonesian Language for both VCE and IB students. Having completed the IB Diploma recently, I also have experience tutoring other IB subjects such as Psychology, English SL and Extended Essay/TOK essays (I achieved all 3 bonus points in the IB for Extended Essay and TOK). Additionally, having graduated Biomedicine this year, I am well-versed in all university-level Biology, Biochemistry and first-year Chemistry subjects (e.g. anatomy, physiology, molecular biology, etc) so I can easily offer help to high school subjects related to Chem and Bio.

I am available to tutor on weekdays and weekends, either in the afternoon or evenings. Best way to contact me is via my mobile number (0452239861), but I am also contactable through email ( My preferred meeting places are in the South-Eastern Suburbs (Glen Waverley, Clayton, Monash Uni, Rowville, etc) but I am willing to travel to other suburbs and also am willing to have Skype lessons if students prefer. I can meet students for lessons either at a library, at their homes or at my home, and I am more than willing to accommodate students' preferences for meeting locations/times.

Having completed the IB with a score of 42, including achieving all 3 bonus points, I am well-versed in the format and assignments of various IB subjects listed above. I am willing to help with internal assessments such as the IA, school exams as well as preparation for the major final IB exams. I am also offering help with EE and TOK essays, and can provide examples of excellent essays. For IB Psych HL, I have numerous high-quality example essays for various exam questions that will be provided for revision.

Also, having graduated Biomed with a WAM of 80+, I am well-versed in biological sciences, so I can provide structured assistance for high school Bio and Chem subjects, as well as additional tutoring for university-level biology-related subjects (e.g. within biomed or science degrees). Also, having completed the GAMSAT with a S2 score of 80, I am experienced in the process of writing excellent GAMSAT essays and I do offer essay correction services along with additional GAMSAT S2 tutoring on how to structure essays, and how to produce an excellent GAMSAT essay.

I am also a native Indonesian speaker and have received formal education in Indonesian language since I was 7-17 years old. I also completed IB Indonesian language as one of my subjects. I have experience tutoring VCE students for Indonesian Language subjects too. As I am a fluent native speaker, I am able to provide assistance with vocabulary, sentence structure, and I also can proofread assignments and offer assistance during the process of completing assignments too. My approach in tutoring Indonesian Language subjects has been successful thus far, with students improving their results in Indonesian language subjects, both in VCE and IB.

I structure my tutoring lessons with the student in mind, and I will discuss with students and make detailed and targeted lesson plans based on their needs in order to achieve the best results possible. I also know how stressful studying for exams in high school/uni can get, so I can offer guidance and advice on how to manage and minimise stress related to exams as well.

I will provide my own notes for various subjects, and additional worksheets for added practice too. Having been through the same process as many of my previous students, I am experienced in offering guidance to students for the best possible results, and can make this journey much more manageable with a structured lesson plan which can take the guesswork out of the whole studying process.



I have been tutoring privately for 2 years in various subjects, including Indonesian language (at a secondary level) as well as various subjects in the Biology field (including high-school Biology tutoring e.g. VCE and IB, as well as university-level biology subjects such as anatomy, physiology, microbiology, biochemistry, etc. for first and second year students in either Bachelor of Sciences or Bachelor of Biomedicine degrees. I am a native Indonesian and Malay speaker, so I am fluent in these languages and am able to help non-native speakers excel in learning and understanding various complex aspects of these languages (vocabulary, grammar, sentence structure, proofreading and correcting assignments, etc). I am also experienced in tutoring GAMSAT Section 2, and can provide sample essays as well as essay marking services.
