As a current student of The University of Sydney studying Computer Science, I have a strong passion and desire to maximise my knowledge in Mathematics. This propelled me to tutor my students to not just master the content of the school curriculum, but to extend their knowledge beyond school and how what they've learned actually applies in the real world. Placing 11th IN THE STATE FOR HSC EXTENSION 1 MATHEMATICS and 10th IN THE STATE FOR HSC ADVANCED MATHEMATICS was my greatest achievement in mathematics during Highschool.

My method of teaching encourages students to both learn and then fully understand and master the concept so that they can apply that knowledge in any situation with confidence and accuracy. Students and parents can expect a slightly different approach to learning, borrowing from the CPA learning mechanism (Concrete - Pictorial - Abstract), where discussion and further external reading is highly encouraged. Applying this method allows me to adjust the learning scope so that I can expertly teach all ages across Primary to Secondary education.

When students deserve compliments, I am not stingy with my compliments. However, expect our sessions to be highly challenging and demanding - I expect the best and 100% effort from all of my students.

***Music - Private Tutelage***

Realising a passion for music at a young age, I have strived to learn the intricacies of both Piano and Contemporary Vocals to an extremely detailed extent, always looking to improve technically, physically and emotionally. Placing 10th IN THE STATE FOR HSC MUSIC was my greatest musical achievement in Highschool. Achieving AMUS WITHIN 6.5 YEARS of starting Piano was my greatest achievement as a Pianist. Being accepted and trained as a vocalist by HIGH PROFILE ENTERTAINMENT COMPANIES such as YG Entertainment was my greatest achievement as a Vocalist.

For Piano, I specialise in strengthening technique and aural components, and am confident in teaching at the HSC level and students preparing for their AMEB examinations. During lessons, I will be drilling in the foundations of technique until it becomes second nature, while also balancing the emotional and 'feel' based aspects of the instrument.

For Vocals, I specialise in a contemporary style, but also draw from technical aspects of musical theatre to create a healthy and strong, yet modern tone. I provide strong technical guidance and will choose a handful of songs for students to practice specific techniques outside of lessons along with vocal exercises. I also let students choose a selection of songs they want to practice.

For HSC Music, I provide theoretical and aural guidance, extensive feedback and mentorship for any instrument at any level to ensure that my students are playing to the guidelines established by NESA and at a level which separates them from the rest of the cohort.

I will provide required materials and resources such as sheet music, lyrics, etc. But if students have work they are assigned to do - e.g. AMEB students - I am more than happy to work on that.

I am open to tutoring at any age, but must see dedication, motivation and effort from students.



I have 5 years of tutoring experience, ranging from primary school students to university students.

For MATHEMATICS, I am qualified to teach all ages from Primary to Highschool, including HSC. I have tutored 2 students for Extension 2 Mathematics, 4 students for Extension 1 Mathematics, 3 students for Advanced Mathematics, 3 students from Year 7-10, 5 students from Primary level. All of my HSC students which have stuck by me have achieved Band 6, with one of my Extension 2 students to place 1st in their year group, and 2 of my Advanced students to place in the top 5 of their respective cohorts.

For PIANO, I am qualified to teach HSC and AMEB AMus level. I have tutored 9 students in Piano, in which all of my AMEB students achieved a minimum A mark in their examinations, and my HSC students achieved a minimum 95% in their performance examinations.

For VOCALS, I am qualified to teach a contemporary style of any age. I was trained by some of Korea's leading musical theatre and contemporary vocal coaches. I have tutored 7 students in Vocals, whom have all gone on to either pursue a music career or enter a music school.

For HSC MUSIC, all of my students have achieved Band 6 and have led two of my students to be selected for the HSC Music Encore Concert - one for Piano, and one for their composition major work.

"I had consistent lessons with Simon over the course of about 1 year, and he has been fantastic in helping me achieve my goals. I passed my AMEB exam with an A+, and was successfully cast as main characters in 2 musicals over the course of our lessons. Thank you simon for all the lessons and guidance !"
