I've been tutoring WACE Chemistry, Economics and Biology for 3 years now and my passion for teaching continues to grow! I love seeing my students improve and succeed and am committed to ensuring that I prepare them well for their assessments. My teaching methods vary from student to student and between subjects, but I always provide explained notes and homework questions inspired by past exam questions. Having been in the first cohort to go through the new WACE syllabus I am very familiar with what is expected of students in these courses, and being affiliated with tuition agencies and task forces has also helped me remain up-to-date since graduating too.

A bit about me: I attended Willetton Senior High School (WA's largest high school) where I was Dux of 4 subjects, being the top student in Chemistry, Economics, Biology and English. I was also awarded a WACE General Exhibition medallion and Excellence and Distinction awards.

I also achieved a score of 98% in the UMAT, which alongside my high 99+ ATAR has secured me a seat at UWA for the MD Doctor of Medicine course. So if you are also looking to pursue Medicine, I will be able to guide you through the admissions/interview process too, having attended several interviews and received offers from universities nationwide.

Availability-wise I only have slots available on the weekends now, as I am busy with Uni and other commitments during the week.

Feel free to call/text me on 0433 333 265 if you have any queries, thank you ! :)



I have been a tutor for the Senior GATE tutoring program at WSHS, where I tutored year 11 and 12

Alongside this, I have been doing private tutoring for Year 12 students for 3 years now, as well as older
students studying Chemistry/Medicine subjects at TAFE and University.

"She's an absolute legend. Saved my life at the end of Year 11 last year, and is now really helping me get through year 12 Chem too! Knows her stuff inside out, and always gives out notes and sample answers to take home and look through Uma has such a real quirky way of teaching, often I've wondered how she comes up with the weird acronyms and stuff she passes on, but the number of times I've relied on those during tests and exams is insane!! they actually work! Great person, I would recommend to everyone, whether you're sitting on 25% or 95% atm in Chem, she'll get you closer to 100% than you'd ever imagined you could be !"
