Mr Vinuja Fernando

 Sydney - Carlingford


Sydney tutor in Chemistry, English, Medical Interviews, Physics

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 FOUR years of ongoing tutoring experience.
In that time I have tutored all of:
- Chemistry
- Physics, AND
- English

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.

Something that I have personally noticed in students is that most are able to understand theory content well and are even able to put principles into practice to a certain degree. However, the most common shortcoming amongst the bulk of HSC students is an inability to answer the question to a level that meets the marking criteria. To do this I believe it is fundamental that students learn to "break down" the parts of a question so that with practice they can virtually predict an exhaustive marking criteria.

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

- One-on-one $80/hour
- Group tutoring $40/hour

I have 4 years of private tutoring experience now since graduating from Baulkham Hills High School in 2017 and have tutored over 100 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.
