(1 student review)
Maths and science were always my favourite subjects throughout high school, and they turned out to be my strongest subjects. I thoroughly enjoyed explaining the concepts to my friends as it consolidated my own knowledge. I feel like this built on my ability to explain and teach concepts in an easy, logical and well-paced manner - much like the way I understand them. Having lived in Queensland my whole life, I feel that I am very familiar with the academic system here. I have experience in group tutoring (up to 4), which is also an option.
I am currently in my fifth year studying Medicine (MBBS) at James Cook University (GPA 6.50) after studying a year of Dentistry (B.OH/Grad Dip Dent) at Griffith University on the Gold Coast (GPA 6.75). Location wise, I am quite flexible - however, unfortunately I am no longer able to do home visits. I usually tutor at JCU or any nearby public library.
My aim is to help students to understand concepts and be able to apply them, and is also my priority. I cover the school work that I feel will help students to grasp concepts first, before moving onto more challenging questions and problems that facilitate the application of knowledge. This is how I learnt my content in high school and am continuing to apply this method in university.
Apart from academics, I am also able to teach piano and flute. I have played the piano since I was 6 and the flute since I was 9. I was brought up surrounded by music and I continue to play because I thoroughly enjoy it.
Please feel free to contact me if you are interested to arrange times.
