**Specialising in Year 11&12 HSC**
**BCom (Finance, USYD, 2019), BLaw, Scholar & J.P. Morgan Investment Banker**

Hey Guys! I graduated from Trinity Grammar School in 2016 with ATAR of 99.50, where I placed first among my peers in English/Ext English, Business Studies, Economics, and Modern History and was the DUX of my school.

I specialise in tutoring Year 11 and Year 12 HSC students, however, I am also able to tutor all high school years and teach the necessary skills and foundations required to be successful in the final years of high school. I am extremely passionate about the subjects listed and wish to pass down my wealth of knowledge and understanding to others. I specialise in Business Studies and Economics - I have had the opportunity to work alongside two former senior economic advisers to Australian Prime Ministers Kevin Rudd and Julia Gillard as an economics author and researcher for a market leading HSC economics textbook (Pearson Education) which has sold over 50, 000 copies since 1999. I have co-authored Economics Workbook 'The Market Economy' (Edition 7, 8, 9) and Textbook 'Australia in the Global Economy'.

I have a no nonsense approach to tutoring; my aim is to maximise your marks! As my economics teacher would say, "I'm going to get you into a University course you weren't destined for!" I understand the learning approaches and attitudes that students take to subjects and how to motivate students into reaching their potential. I have a great understanding of the HSC and what each specific course requires to do well.

- As a tutor, I aim to be of assistance in any way required and to be available at all times. I hope to be able to provide detailed one-on-one guidance, knowledge, and feedback into the syllabus and the specific sections of course work. Further, I have a wealth of resources available for my students, including; -sample assessments, practice questions and answers
-textbook guides, syllabus summaries and my own personal subject notes
-model essay responses and scaffolds

"Michael is an exemplary and commendable tutor, assisting me in significantly improving my grades for Business Studies and Economics. He boasts a plethora of resources for each subject with notes that are clear, concise, and easy to learn. His experience in authoring major economics textbooks combined with his knowledge as an investment banking analyst ensures his lessons are structured with a layer of real-world context and information that deepens the extensiveness of his sessions. His tutoring methods are easy to work with as he is open-minded to a student's work ethic and thus, willingly takes the time to readjust to the student's preferences. Quite importantly, his feedback to practice essays and reports is very helpful and constructive and he takes the time to guide the student to a better writing flair as required by the HSC and asking for extra help from him is often quick and convenient. Overall, he exceeds his mandate towards making sure that the student is able to learn efficiently and without difficulty in all of the student's subjects, as he had done for me. Although he advises following his own content and teachings, he is nevertheless able to tackle any problems that may arise from work and teachers at school, becoming a valuable mentor equivalent to his tutorial powers. I highly recommend Michael as a tutor for all those whose pursuing the subjects he covers."
