Welcome to Hills Tutoring!
Students provided reviews (4.9/5.0) and positive outcomes.

Successful outcomes:
1. A top 10 selective school student keeps the top score at the school in the Japanese units (Continuers & Extension).

2. HSC result turned over 80% even just after 6 months of tutoring (2021)
This student came from a background that wasn't around the average level at the time when I started the lesson, however after 6 months, this student scored over 80% on HSC as well as at school. When a student's effort and tutor's effort combine well, the outcome reached the best result within the given time. (2 hours/week lessons)

3. Recently one of my students (university 4th year) received offers for full-time work from a Japanese financial company in Sydney and Common Wealth Bank while his 4th year of university. This student takes a finance major with a Japanese minor degree and I have been teaching the student since year 11 towards HSC continuer's Japanese through university's degree (5 years +).

"娘は在豪年数が短く、日本語で数学を教えて頂ける方を探してやっと見つけた先生です。 数学は英語力がないと、内容は簡単なのに点数を落としてしまうので、日本語で教わるのが正解でした。 駐在や留学等で高学年から渡豪された方には特におすすめです。 レッスンはZoomと、先生と共有できるホワイトボードのアプリを使用し、オンラインレッスンでも問題なくコミニュケーションがとれました。レッスン後のまとめも毎回PDFで送って下さり、復習も充分できたようです。 丁寧で指導力も高く、信頼できる先生です。 おかげで理解力がずいぶん上がり、自信を持ってHSCを受験す ることができました。"
