Hi! My name is Vinuja and I am currently studying Medicine at UNSW. I graduated from Baulkham Hills High School in 2017 where I ranked 1st place in Subjects of Chemistry, Physics and English. In my HSC I achieved an ATAR of 99.90 and have since had 2 years of ongoing tutoring experience.
In that time I have tutored all of:
- Chemistry
- Physics, AND
- English

Before proceeding, I would like to make a note that the HSC Syllabus HAS changed for the above subjects and that I have received adequate retraining to specialise in the subjects listed above - especially Chemistry.

My lessons are structured around a simple principle of study that works for HSC study. That is, a thorough exploration of theory content as well as ample engagement with practice questions to ensure that students are able to apply the content that they have learnt.

However, something that I have personally noticed in students in the past, and even in a younger version of myself for that matter, is that most are able to understand theory content well and are even able to put principles into practice to a certain degree. The common shortcoming however, amongst the bulk of HSC students is an inability to answer the question to a satisfactory level. To do this I believe it is fundamental that students develop the ability to "break down" the parts of a question and really brainstorm how to meet the marking criteria.

I have seen countless times, how this last step really has been the key to unlocking success in many HSC students - including myself. As such, I place great emphasis on analysing the following when working through practice questions:
- NESA Directive terms
- Breaking down ‘parts’ of the question
- Mark value and possible mark allocations
- How to exhaustively answer the question

Pricing
- One-on-one $70, hour
- Group tutoring $30, hour

Experience

I have 2 years of private tutoring experience now since graduating from Baulkham Hills High School in 2017 and have tutored over 50 students primarily in Year 11 and 12, specialising in the NEW HSC syllabus for Chemistry and Physics.
My students have come from schools such as Baulkham Hills High, James Ruse, Sydney Boys, North Sydney Boys, Oakhill College, Cherrybrook Technology etc.
Over this time, I have taught students in a 1-on-1 setting as well as small (4-5) and large groups (>20 students) and find myself flexible enough to accommodate for the different environments with students of varying calibre.
