Hi there!

----- About me -----

My name is Ming.

Here is a summary of my experience/qualifications:

∙VCE: 50 raw Specialist Maths and 48 raw in Maths Methods
∙Bachelor of Commerce (Actuarial Studies) from the University of Melbourne.
Worked for Cambridge University Press (publisher of VCE maths textbooks), Edrolo, Texas Instruments, and more!
∙I have presented videos tutorials for Cambridge University Press, error checked, edited, and written material for 30 VCE/HSC/high school mathematics and science textbooks. In addition, I have advised authors on their work for several mathematics texts.
5 years experience, with past students scoring in excess of 45 raw for both Maths Methods and Specialist Maths.

----- Objectives -----

I teach in a way so that there is an emphasis on the “why” component. Students tend to enjoy mathematics when they understand and make meaningful connections between concepts.
∙I ensure that my students do not become dependent on me. I strive to have students be able to think independently and on their own feet. This will help them not only in their academics but also in the long term.

I believe that every child has the capacity to succeed in academia, however, the underlying problem is that not all children can envision this. With the right support and guidance, your child’s confidence will naturally elevate in that they know that they are doing it right. Every single time.

----- How can I help you? -----

Students come to me for all sorts of reasons, such as:

∙ Not enjoying maths or not 'getting' it
∙ Unmotivated
∙ Poor grades and wanting to improve
∙ Working hard but unable to translate this into results
∙ Good student but wants the extra edge in achieving top results

Students who perform well in mathematics are not necessarily those who have natural ability, but rather those who employ the correct strategies and techniques. Contact me to discuss how I can help you (or your child) improve in maths, or to achieve that extra edge you need to smash out your exams.

----- Why choose me? -----

∙My experience extends from my years of tutoring to results of my students, to my personal results, and to work for the many educational companies who are directly involved in the VCE. ∙I am well versed in all topics from Year 7 to Year 12 and even tertiary subjects.
∙I have access to all the latest information and materials which is critical for any student who is to succeed.
∙I have successful first-hand experience of the VCE and know the secrets to success.
∙Tutorials are recorded so you can revise later.
After-hours support is free and encouraged at any time.

I have tutored over 100 students from various schools, including Avila, Brighton, Canterbury Girls, Camberwell, Dandenong, Glen Waverley, Haileybury, Mac.Robertson's, McKinnon, Melbourne High, Mount Waverley, Kew High School, PLC Burwood, St Catherine's, Scotch College, Strathcona, Wantirna, Suzanne Cory, Vermont and first-year university subjects (University of Melbourne, Monash University, Swinburne and Deakin).

"Ming is incredibly knowledgeable and dedicated as a tutor. In our first session he created a custom lesson plan to match my school's teaching schedule and was always prompt whenever I needed help. Compared to some other tutors I've been to, Ming has always been easy going and fresh in explaining various concepts to me. He is genuinely helpful and motivating and I felt like that I have benefited greatly from him helping me out during this year."
