Qualified Science and Mathematics Teacher offering tutoring to high school and under-grad uni students on Gold Coast.

Methodology

Lessons are informal and comfortable. I help explain things that are misunderstood and together we can work through examples and past exam questions. It is best for you to bring your own notes and any assessments or practicals so that we can go over them together. It is a very good idea to start going over past papers well in advance before exams.

Background

I am a fully Qualified Science and Mathematics Teacher and I am also currently completing my masters degree. I have been tutoring students from high school as well as first and second year uni students for 5 years. I am passionate about Life Sciences but am also able to teach Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry.
