***Mathematics***

As a current student of The University of Sydney studying Computational Data Science and Discrete Mathematics and Algorithms, 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.

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.

Expect our sessions to be highly challenging and demanding - I expect the best and 100% effort from all of my students - yet rewarding with not just high marks but satisfaction in the knowledge that you are well equipped for high-school and university level Mathematics.

I will provide multiple resources, not limited to: textbooks, exercise books/sheets, past papers, research papers. Feel free to bring your own resources to our lessons, and we can discuss further.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions regarding my Mathematics courses and I can provide a general summary and some sample sheets and resources.


***Music***

Realising a passion for music at a young age, I have strived to learn the intricacies of both Classical Piano and Contemporary Vocals to an extremely detailed extent, always looking to improve technically, physically and emotionally.

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, HSC 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.


Please contact me via my phone number or email address and we can discuss the best time to hold lessons:

- Phone number: 0481 773 909
- Email: skim3471@gmail.com

Due to increased demand, I am currently holding lessons online at a reduced fee. However, we can discuss the possibility of in-person lessons under special circumstances. Please note that in-person lessons will include a travel fee of at least $15.

Experience

I have 6 years of tutoring experience, ranging from primary school students to university students.

For MATHEMATICS, I am qualified to teach all ages from Primary to High-school, including HSC. I have tutored 3 students for Extension 2 Mathematics, 6 students for Extension 1 Mathematics, 7 students for Advanced Mathematics, 12 students from Year 7-10, 4 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, two of my Extension 1 students to place 1st in their year group, and 5 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 6 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 nominated for the HSC Music Encore Concert - one for Piano, and one for Vocals.

Qualifications

I am currently in my third year of studying a double degree in Computational Data Science and Discrete Mathematics and Algorithms at the University of Sydney and have extensive experience in tutoring Band 6 level HSC Mathematics, Year 11 Advanced, Extension 1 and Extension 2 Mathematics, Year 7 - 10 Mathematics and Primary level Mathematics for 6 years. I graduated from the Sydney Church of England Grammar School (SHORE Grammar School) with an ATAR of 99.50, ranking 9TH IN THE STATE FOR EXTENSION 1 MATHEMATICS SCORING 99/100 AND 11TH IN THE STATE FOR EXTENSION 2 MATHEMATICS SCORING 49/50. I MAINTAINED 1ST RANKING INTERNALLY IN SCHOOL COHORT THROUGHOUT YEAR 12.

I completed my PIANO AMEB AMUS levels and my ASSOCIATE DIPLOMA IN MUSIC, AUSTRALIA MUSICIANSHIP - CLASSICAL in YEAR 11 during high-school. I RANKED 10TH IN THE STATE FOR HSC MUSIC 2 SCORING 99/100 AND MAINTAINED 1ST RANK INTERNALLY IN SCHOOL COHORT THROUGHOUT YEAR 12.

I was TRAINED AT WonK Entertainment AS A CONTEMPORARY VOCALIST FOR 8 MONTHS IN 2018 and TRAINED AT YG Entertainment AS A VOCALIST FOR 1.5 YEARS FROM 2018 - 2020.

As I have recently experienced the ordeals of the HSC that my students now face, I will provide study tips and advice on how to maximise your ATAR and work towards your dream course.
