 Canberra - Braddon

Expert maths High School teacher with 15+ years of exp

Canberra tutor in Algebra, Calculus, Geometry, Statistics, Maths, Maths Methods, Maths Specialist, Further Maths, Mandarin

Humorous, fun and sometimes can be little crazy just to make people laugh. I am great at connecting with anyone in particular teenagers. I am approachable and pretty chill at all times, but when it comes to work, I am serious.

Learning should be fun and enjoyable but serious at the same time. I have a reasonably high expectation on myself so I also expect the same for my students in order to learn to take responsibility and have accountability for their learning. I will guide them along the way. Throughout the journey, I also teach students to be resilient and persistent.

I am currently teaching at one of Canberra's high schools.

Experience

I have 15+ years of Maths teaching experience in many different curriculums, ranging from Australian National Curriculum, IB Diploma Program (DP), IB MYP, IGCSE, NSW HSC to ACT BSSS at various levels. I have taught at many different schools including public, private college, private independent schools as well as oversea international school.

I am an expert in almost all areas of Maths. My main experience comes from IB and HSC, where I have taught it up to High Level in IB and Ext 1 in HSC. My most recent teaching experience in high level maths would be the IB Maths Application and Interpretation course in 2021 where one of my students received the highest grade of 7 as well as an IB dux of 45/45.

My other teaching experience is Mandarin where I have taught it for couple of years at various schools.

As well as that, I have also tutored many students for Maths who were failing maths to loving maths, and gained confidence in tackling maths at any level.
