Physics student at UOW - Highly experienced and dedicated to tutoring Physics and Math

Methodology

Each student needs a different teaching style. For all cases, I do what Elon Musk always talks about: It's best to break things down to their fundamental truths and reason up from first principles. Additionally, I firmly believe that "nearly everything is really interesting if you go into it deeply enough."

I see teaching Maths and Sciences much like what we'd do if we were to (say) go fishing. "Give a man a fish, and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, and you feed him for a lifetime." Let's find your own unique way of using the fishing rod and how we can apply it across contexts to catch fish.

With that said, the teaching method that tends to be the most successful in these subjects is interactive learning. I do not take the approach of simple assistance in learning and rote memorisation; I take the approach of making sure the student understands the concept entirely. This is done best with lots of examples and practice questions, in which I give the student a chance to think through it themselves, then guide them through the problems by asking the right questions and leading them into their own way of solving the problem or understanding a concept. I believe that everyone has their own style of solving a problem or approaching a concept, therefore I make sure to take this into account.

Lastly, I aim for the most effective studying with the following (although not necessary) recommendations based on research and experience:
-The session of (say) 2h to be divided into two 1h blocks with a 10-minute break in-between.
I will not charge for the break times or overtime that might be needed to finish off what we're doing

-We preferably do it earlier in the day as studies have shown that our learning and focus are significantly improved then.

-Eat enough for the whole session. Math and Science take up a lot of brain power and your brain is (by far) the most energy dependent organ.


From this, you let me know what you want to do!

Background

I've always had a passion for explaining mathematics and sciences. I started in 2014 by explaining concepts to friends and family, then tutoring classmates during High School where their marks were significantly improved. This followed onto university and, due to high demand, I began charging small amounts.

I took this a step further and joined online math and science help forums because I enjoy and believe I am talented in teaching these subjects. Due to students liking my explanations, I started a website where I've been posting some of these explanations for quick reference.

Details

In cases where I have to travel for over 5 km radius of UOW / Gwynneville, the extra cost of public transport will be applied depending on where it is I have to travel to. Two-way OPAL costs vary with a total of $5-7.

I have no strict cancellation policy. However, due to scheduling, I'd kindly request a 24 hour in advance notice.

Victor's CV

I am extremely passionate about educating people, explaining concepts, and especially in maths and sciences. I've had lots of experience which allowed me to develop exceptional time management, general employability and communicational skills, especially useful in the academic area.

-iUnivative, Team Leader (Winning team), Jan 2018:
As the Team Leader of the team we called the “iDucks” (due to the university’s mascot, a duck), my role was not only to solve the given problem with my team, but I had the extra task to to schedule team meetings, put together everyone’s tasks and keep track of progress and communication. I had to take action in terms of contacting the Wollongong Council for interviews to get a better understanding of the problem we had to solve, putting together the final project and presenting it to the Wollongong Council.

-Sales Assistant at Cancer Council, Jan 2017:
My job was to meet sales targets to help generate profit that can be used to develop and implement cancer research, prevention and support programs. I had to make a strong and valued contribution to the daily objectives of the shop by developing and using exceptional sales, customer service, interpersonal and organisation skills.

-Volunteered for Project Penguin, Jul 2014:
Assisted primary school students in making their projects about the importance of protecting the ‘little penguins’ of manly. We explained why they are becoming endangered and how we can raise awareness to help protect little penguins. We then followed by coming up with a way for the students to make a project themselves which will raise awareness about this issue.

-Volunteered to the University of Brasilia, August 2013
I volunteered as a collaborator of the environmental awareness workshop for students graduating in communication. This was carried out in the savannah of the "Imperial Chapada", taught by the Master of Science I. Motta and organized by Professor E. Bentes. The activity required good communication skills and an ability to simplify things for people who are unfamiliar with nature and animals.

I personally recommend Victor as a tutor. He is outstanding at breaking things down and explaining concepts. His extensive knowledge and problem-solving skills become immediately apparent and from my experience, my grades have drastically improved due to his exceptional teaching abilities. Again highly recommend!!
