Dr Jess Tacchi

Hamilton, Newcastle

Newcastle Tutor in Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Essay Writing, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Human Biology

All-round tutor for secondary and tertiary science students in the Newcastle region.

I offer personalised and flexible sessions, tailored to the needs of individual students and focus not just on content, but communication as well. With a PhD in biochemistry, I can offer tutoring in Biology and Chemistry to University level and Physics and general sciences to a HSC level. My focus is on developing confidence in course material and problem solving skills that enable students to perform well in exam situations and also in critical thinking. As I am currently undertaking my Masters of Teaching (secondary science - all areas), teaching is something I am very passionate about and I am well-equipped with teaching strategies to suit all students. My students admire my creative, enthusiastic and encouraging teaching style. I have worked as a tutor in high schools with the University of Newcastle as well as demonstrating and lecturing undergraduate laboratory classes at the University of Technology, Sydney, and I have developed original course material for the current high school science syllabus.

I am available afternoons and evenings during the week with full day availability Saturday and Sunday. I additionally offer online support via Discord or google hangouts through chat, calls and video link and can facilitate online tuition sessions (particularly for last-minute assignment assistance) via google docs.
