 Profile

IMPORTANT: I DO NOT write essays for students, especially at a university level - that's not tutoring, it's plagiarism and could get you kicked out of your university and me kicked out of mine. Please reconsider your decision if you're looking for someone to write an essay for you!

I am a PhD student at the University of Sydney who has been tutoring for over five years now with proven results, including Honour Roll students - references available. I am a relaxed, friendly and professional tutor who tries to bring a sense of humour to class! I believe in a holistic approach to tutoring including working on exam technique and revision and essay-writing skills, but am definitely NOT going to try to turn you into an HSC machine - I believe that the best results (and the happiest students!) come from a healthy balance of rest and social and extra-curricular activities as well as study and solid understanding of the set material. That said, I make sure that I teach with continual reference to the syllabus and provide advice on study habits in my lessons, and will give you homework - but I do understand if there are some weeks that you just can't do it because you have too much work on, and that my subject/s can't always be your first priority. (Although, you do need to realise that there is only so much I can do if you don't put the work in.)

I am currently only available on Mondays from 4-5pm and every second Tuesday from 5:30-7:30pm, but I am more than happy to put you on my waiting list and notify you when new slots become available :)
