99.55 ATAR - Maths & Science Tutoring for Y7-Y12
Canberra tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Chemistry, Further Maths, General Science, Geometry, Maths, Maths Methods, Maths Specialist, Physics
Hello! I am Yangda and I graduated in 2020 with an ATAR of 99.55. I am currently studying for an undergraduate research degree at the ANU - PhB Science (Honours) - in pure mathematics, theoretical physics, and computer science. I have also conducted research into computational models used in galactic archaeology.
My approach to tutoring is to inspire students and cultivate the same passion that I have for teaching the subjects. As long as you love what you are learning, the marks will follow! I sincerely enjoy learning about mathematics and physics, and I love even more to share knowledge with students. With an interdisciplinary background, I will aim to put everything you are learning out of the context of an exam environment and into a broader perspective. Of course, I also have a lot of tips and tricks to maximise your marks as well! It's all about finding that sweet spot which is why each lesson will be tailored to your wants and needs. I normally conduct 1-on-1 sessions for students in person on the ANU campus or online via Zoom but am open to group tutoring requests.
My specialisation is with the HSC. I completed Advanced and Extension 1 Mathematics in Year 11. I have a thorough understanding of the HSC curriculum for mathematics and physics and effective methods for scoring highly on every piece of assessment. I achieved full marks in my Physics Depth Study (Y12) on the experimental derivation of Rydberg's constant.
I hope to not just be a tutor for your subjects but to be a mentor and help you achieve your goals in all aspects of life. Being involved in many extracurricular activities during my senior years in high school has taught me a lot about time management and maintaining healthy mental wellbeing. I strongly advocate for these things and will take a holistic mentoring approach to your studies which has made my high school experience very enjoyable.
I have 3+ years of experience with private and in-centre tutoring from kindergarten through to Year 12, including students with ADHD and dyslexia. I am open to teaching for the IB, ACT, HSC, and AP curriculums.
Outside of my STEM studies, you'll find me jamming on the trombone and piano or cooking up a curry!
I have worked as a private tutor for 3+ years, helping students achieve their academic goals and excel in their high school studies.
