Mr Philip Noonan


Experienced VCAA Exam Assessor

Melbourne tutor in General Science, Maths, Physics

Service areas
Melbourne and Regional Victoria

I have over 20 years of VCE Physics teaching experience. And I have a signature method that guides motivated students to results such as:

*Over forty students with a 40+ study score. Over ten in the 48+ range.
*Two students with a perfect study score of 50.
*One student who received the Premier's Prize for Physics - awarded to the top five students in the state of Victoria.

Having a teacher who understands the course thoroughly with a gift for sharing their skills and knowledge makes a difference.

Central to my experience is seven years as an assessor on the VCAA Physics Exam Assessment Panel where I marked over 5000 exam scripts.

My secret sauce is to methodically train students to achieve 'full marks' on multi-mark questions that most commonly appear in external exams. That way you can be confident you’ve not left marks on the table when it matters most.

I teach from my home in East Keilor, 5 minutes from the Western Ring Road and Tulla Freeway. And in my own Virtual Practice. The technology supporting online learning is proliferating. I utilise the Zoom Whiteboard feature together with my digital pencil. And we can screen-share textbooks, worksheets, and real-time physics simulations.

I maintain and deepen my knowledge by reviewing every page of the VCE Physics textbooks used in Victorian schools, and regularly going through the VCAA-issued exams and examiner reports. As well as VCAA study design updates.

I enjoy seeing students grow in confidence, get ahead of the game, and avoid the anxiety and sense of overwhelm that needless emerges when things get left too late. Students of mine have established solid careers in medicine, optometry, aeronautics, information technology, and mechatronics. And future graduates will be in high demand in robotics, personalised health care, Artificial intelligence and quantum computing.

What will this kind of service mean for you? Will it make your enjoyment of physics and entering your dream tertiary course more effortless and real?

Your introductory lesson comes as my gift to you and is your opportunity to discuss how physics is going, your goals, and how I can help you achieve them in the most efficient way possible.

Lessons are scheduled and confirmed with payment in advance via my online booking calendar

Congratulations on taking concrete steps to achieve great results in physics. I can't wait to help you accomplish your goals.

Philip Noonan.
