Experienced Tutor (Secondary/Tertiary) - 12 Years Teaching Experience

I'm a certified VET teacher (specializing in economics, mathematics, and physics) with over a decade of experience in education and education management. I've taught over 800 students in past 12 years and have a strong track record of student improvement.

I was born, raised, and currently reside in Newcastle, Australia, and I am one of the most experienced private educators in my home region. I offer online tutoring to students in NSW, VIC, and QLD.

All lessons run online and are offered as full term only. Monday-Saturday full term lesson prices range from $550-$1400 (prices vary depending on subject and lesson duration, lessons offers are subject to availability). I typically have a fairly full schedule, so if you're interested in booking lessons, please send me a message with the student year and subject and I'll be in touch with any suitable availabilities.
