Experienced and professional private educator

My name is Zakary Nicholls, I'm a private mathematics educator and scholar based in Newcastle, with eleven years of experience in the field of education and training. I'm a qualified VET mathematics teacher, and I hold academic qualifications in commerce, mathematics, and science.

I am one of the most experienced tutors in the Newcastle region, having tutored well over four hundred individual students in primary, secondary, vocational, and university courses, over the course of the last eleven years.

My main area of academic expertise is mathematics, but I also teach a range of associated subjects including: business, economics, physics, and science. My students routinely demonstrate fantastic academic and personal improvements, and it brings me great pride to help students to achieve their best. From a results perspective, my students have achieved better than expected results through my teaching and tutoring.

One former student was a high performing HSC student, she was scoring about 80% (and above) in all of her HSC subject (with Advanced Math being the exception, where her early year 11 average in math was about 40%, as with many students English was her strength and Math was her weakness). Her mother called me in to help her improve her results in Math, as she strongly wanted her daughter to complete the Advanced Math course. I taught her for 2 years up until the HSC exam, she received a final mark of 79% for Advanced Math. She was accepted into her first university choice a Bachelor of Speech Pathology at Newcastle.

An additional former student was a young man interested in getting an electrical or civil trade, he received a year 7 final mark in math of around 30%. His father had called me in to help his son improve, as he was concerned his poor performance in math might be an issue for later trade applications. After one year of tutoring this young mans performance had improved substantially, he received around 50% at the end of year 8. I continued to tutor him until his final exams in year 10, he continued to perform well and he received a final mark in Math 5.2 stream of about 65% (which was one of the highest marks in his class). At the end of year 10, he had applied for both an electrical trade and a civil trade, he was offered both, and ultimately he took the civil trade.

Being an experience and trained educator, my lessons are tailored to the needs of each student, whether that is focusing on learning and understanding of core concepts or applying existing knowledge to practice advanced problems and exam style questions. My aim is to ensure that every student comes away from my lessons with an improved understanding of the content, improved academic work ethic, and improved self confidence.

Unlike many experienced tutors and firms in the private education industry, my lessons are priced to be very affordable, and as a consequence, I am a very high volume tutor (meaning that I typically teaching around thirty to forty lesson hours each week during the school terms). Because students under my tutelage usually show improvements, I have many long term students. This means that my teaching schedule is typically quite full, however I am always willing to take on additional students if we can find a mutually appropriate timeslot. I run term based lessons, a full term of lessons runs for 8 weeks from week 2 through to week 9 of each term (the initial term is charged pro rata).

Term lesson prices start from $40/hour and vary based on subject and lesson format, If you would like to book lessons, please send me a message I'll be in touch with any suitable availabilities and prices.
