 Melbourne - North Melbourne

Learn Science with a Scientist!

Melbourne tutor in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, General Science

I'm Tristan, A professional research scientist who is looking for motivated VCE/University Chemistry students who are searching for a tutor that is different to what they get at school - being taught a concept from a scientist's point of view is one of the most beneficial perspectives I can provide.
I take an applied approach to teaching chemical principles, using practical experiments and real-world examples to ensure a foundational understanding in my students. I have always taken an individually styled approach with my students, catering to a wide range of learning styles, strengths and weaknesses. My tutoring sessions also include lessons on exam technique and how to maximise your scores by studying the right way, and practising exam style questions from Day 1.

My speciality and area of greatest value is in VCE Chemistry, however I am happy to help with general science, mathematics up to Year 10. Any Tertiary Chemistry tutoring or Post-Graduate mentoring, Scientific Writing/Journal Publishing is also welcome.

If you'd like to ask me any questions at all, please get in touch and I'm more than happy to discuss individual needs, as every student is unique.

My tutoring sessions are conducted in my home in North Melbourne.

$60 per hour - standard session is 1 hour. Any session less than this will need to be discussed.

If you are interested in group sessions or sharing the costs with other students, I am happy to take on groups of up to 4 students. Please get in contact for pricing for groups.



I have spent the last 15 years tutoring a range of subjects across Secondary and Tertiary science, both privately and for Universities.
My area of expertise is in VCE, Tertiary chemistry, where I have focused on helping students achieve high marks by fostering a deep understanding of scientific principles that are robust under examination.
