Specialist VCE Biology Teacher 'Biol is the Meaning of Life'
Melbourne tutor in Biology, Study Skills
Hello VCE Biology students, I have been a passionate VCE Biology teacher for over 32 years. I am a specialist teacher who has a deep understanding of the 2022-2026 Study Design (VCE Biology 1-4 classes)
I am expanding my tutoring availability times in 2024 so I should be able to cater to student preferred times. Just reach out and contact me!
The Best way for students to contact me is by mobile phone initially. Just send me a text and I will ring you back ASAP.
Currently taking students for school holiday Biology Head Start (Summer Holidays 2023/2024.) Taking expressions of interest now for 2024 students.
Online tutoring means you can get support from the comfort of your own home and never stress about being late for a session. I use a Google Meet link that you can join.
I am an exceptional online tutor, presenting great interactive lesson notes, visuals, animations, and review focus questions. I have taught in four prestigious independent schools over the course of my teaching and my own students have thought of me as incredibly knowledgeable, and reliable, who sets high standards.
Tutoring 1 to 3 students is truly rewarding. It is a great opportunity to 'unpack' key knowledge and develop a meaningful understanding.
My approach to tutoring is to make it interesting, get the student to comprehend, analyze, and evaluate key knowledge, allow the student to ask questions, AND encourage students to rehearse processes, outlines, and definitions.
I come resourced with my own tailored review focus questions for each Area of Study, daily practice challenge problems, AND my own lesson notes. Wait there is more....I have notes with exemplar examples of outlines like CRISPR, Trp Operon regulation AND vocabulary definitions of all the 'buzz' terms
I also like to start off every lesson with a Biology joke...here is one for your enjoyment.

'Biology Is The Meaning of Life'
I have been a passionate VCE Biology teacher for over 32 years, tutoring hundreds of students. I am a specialist teacher that has more time available to expand my tutoring services, recently deciding to teach only VCE Biology 1-4 classes.
I am an exceptional online tutor, presenting great interactive lesson notes, visuals, animations and review focus questions.
I have taught in four prestigious independent schools over the course of my teaching and my own students have thought of me as incredibly knowledgeable, and reliable, who sets high standards, knows the VCAA Biology Study Design back to front (2022 -2026), and makes the subject matter 'come alive'
I have been tutoring many online students either individually OR in groups of 2 or 3 from the same school, proving to be very economical for the student. 1 student = #130 2 students from the same school = $100 each, 3 students from the same school - $80 each
Tertiary level Science Degree, Diploma of Education, employed VCE Biology specialist (32 years), Biology tutoring (20 years)
Attended annual VCE Biology STAV Conferences and Professional Development events at GTAC (Gene Technology Access Centre)
$80 is based on group tutoring of 3 students from the same school. Normally, students will create their own small school group and then book me as their tutor. Group tutoring is very economical and has worked really well academically with students 'bouncing' off each other's understanding.
One-on-one tuition is perfect for catering to individualized SAC preparation, home learning and asking for help with specific Checkpoint Q's
3 students from the same school - $80 per student/session 1 hour
2 students from the same school- $100 per student/session 1 hour
1 student - $130
