My aim is to develop a deep understanding of concepts, to then build skill.
Teaching Experience for Mathematics

Mathematics was my best subject in the VCE, and I have a great love for this subject.
I’ve always been very interested in maths and have always had a passion for it during my whole schooling.
This does not mean to say I have not struggled while attempting to learn and complete mathematical principles or problems. However, I always worked hard to overcome this.
Because of this, I understand how hard maths can be sometimes, but also how rewarding the subject is, and how fascinating it can be if given the opportunity. So, I am positive that I will be able to help anyone in need regardless if they are the top or bottom of their class, and if they only need a tiny bit of help to boost their confidence or if they as much help as possible!!
I find that creating a very deep understanding of concepts and theories, and then practicing questions and problem solving is the best way to succeed in maths as it sets a foundation of knowledge and understanding, which can then be built on and challenged.
This is how I did well and felt confident, so I would help you to feel the same by helping you do this too.

Teaching Experience for Physics

I studied physics in year 11 and 12 for VCE. I have really good notes that are extremely helpful which I can share with a student.
I have a deep memory and large understanding for the models, concepts, theories, and so on which are a part of the ¾ physics criteria/study design.
I am very interested in the science and as a result have many ways of explaining topics in ways that others wouldn’t.
I received the top mark in my class (98% - 1 mark lost due to spelling mistake!) for the independent research project which I completed. I am happy to share this and show how I created it.
I’m also happy to help non-VCE student with physics as I briefly began learning it before VCE, and know more than just the study designs criteria due to my own reading and research about other concepts out of interest.

Teaching Experience for Geography

I studied geography in year 11 and 12 for VCE. (I have also studied it my whole life). I have really good and clear notes that are extremely helpful which I can share with a student.
I have a deep memory and large understanding for the models, concepts, theories, and so on which are a part of the ¾ geography VCE criteria/study design.
I received the highest marks in my class for many of my SACs (tests) and was constantly told by my teacher how well I performed and how much I clearly knew.
I am also willing to help non VCE students with geography as I have a sound knowledge of many topics.

Teaching Experience for Psychology

I studied psychology in year 11 and 12 for VCE. I have really good and clear notes that are extremely helpful which I can share with a student.
I have a deep memory and large understanding for the models, concepts, theories, and so on which are a part of the ¾ psychology criteria/study design.

Teaching Experience for Rowing

I have rowed at school for 2 seasons. Before this I had not rowed at all, and was competing against people at my school who had been rowing for 5 years+
I love rowing and have extreme determination which allowed me to get into the 3rd 8+ and then advance to the 2nd 8+ after only half a season.
I had coaching from the coaches at school as well as private coaching when I was at home (I went to boarding school), so my technique is extremely strong and I’ve been told by many that it is much better than the average rowers. So I would love to pass on my knowledge and tips to someone who is starting out or wanting to get better.
I also know some really great workouts to do on the erg, in the boat, on land, and in the gym which will strengthen the muscles that are required in rowing, but also the ones that are more likely to be injured/damaged if not strong enough.
I am happy to create race plans, and I’m also happy to suggest cox calls (but they are up to the cox of course in the end and should be developed based on the crew and race) as well as food to eat to sustain energy and power (I am not a dietician though and am not responsible for performance outcomes in relation to food intake, I am only offering my own advise on this :)).
I’m also happy to row in a pair or bigger crew with anyone looking for someone to row with, or for somehow who can row but is not very confident yet. I could cox as well if needed however I have not done this before properly (have done it twice but no more).

Teaching Experience for English Standard

I have studied English throughout my whole life, and have consistently received high grades.
I really enjoy studying the subject and being able to apply my knowledge and skills particularly with essay writing.
Due to this I have a very strong skill set and knowledge of the subject, and as a result I would be able to assist those wanting help in the subject, and I would demonstrate techniques and principles that will ensure a sound understanding of the topic/methods in order to increase the confidence and proficiency in this subject.

Special rates:
Will be happy to review work in between/after or before a tutoring session (for example, reading through an English essay and offering tips and advise); this will cost $5 extra per 2 pieces of work (essay, maths paper...) per week/session. (If it is just, for example, one maths question or a short paragraph, I will do this for free).

I’m also offering a discount if multiple sessions in a week are required/wanted. Two sessions will be $55 rather than $60, and 3 sessions will be $78 rather than $90. :)
If 4 sessions or more are required, this can be arranged/discussed further.

Depending on the time and location I am happy to do half an hour sessions. However, these will cost $17 unless a student wants to do an hour with a break in between for discussed reasons (such as they have health issues or learning issues which require breaks or regular observance/attendance to), in which case the overall price will remain the same.
