(1 student review)

In my tuition, I provide an expert, exam-orientated approach to the preparation of senior chemistry and maths. My students generally obtain A or A+ in these subjects. I have great success with guiding students receiving very low grades (e.g. fail) in these subjects in year 11 to obtaining grades of B-A+ in year 12.
My tuition style focuses on exam preparation and assessment, efficient study techniques (e.g. Leitner flash card, spacing method, mnemonics). I am the author of the ExamMate Chemistry 3 and 4 apps: see for details.

I also tutor university level chemistry and the chemistry component of the GAMSAT medical entrance exam.

Reservations for 2019 are open - tuition can start at the end of 2018 and continue through the school break.

"Luke is a great tutor. When my son first saw Luke at the end of Year 11, his marks in MathsB and Chem were “low C” and teachers were concerned his OP would be around 9 not achieving the entry mark he needed for Uni. We were also thinking about changing MathsB to MathsA as he was struggling so much. Through Luke’s structured approach and great manner he assisted my son to improve in both subjects to end Year 12 with “A” in both subjects assessments. My son ended the year with an OP4 achieving his goal of 5 or better. Cannot recommend Luke highly enough."
