I completed the IB Diploma with a 99.85 ATAR (44/45 IB) and am currently studying Bachelor of Science/Doctor of Dental Medicine at Sydney University (majoring in Physiology and Philosophy)
I offer IB tutoring in the following subjects: English Literature HL/SL, Biology HL/SL, Economics HL/SL, Music HL/SL, Mathematics SL, Italian Ab Initio.
Additionally, I can provide extensive guidance on TOK/EE, IAs, essay writing/feedback as well as high school/primary levels specialising in Selective/OC testing, Scholarship entrance and interview skills.
The key to success in the IB is striking a balance between three key skills; thorough learning, consolidation and effective application to past paper questions. One of the fundamental errors that students make is to study for endless hours, making detailed notes without absorbing any of the information that is actually essential in the exams. I was prone to procrastination during school, which meant that when it came to exams, I often found myself with limited time to prepare. Despite being a highly detrimental habit, it forced me to develop a concise, compact study technique, meaning that I learn what is necessary with accuracy and efficiency.
Having undergone the daunting process myself, I am now eager to share what I have learnt to help you realise your full academic potential and achieve results you may have never thought possible. Alongside my extensive collection of questionbanks and concise study notes, I will walk through each step of the process with you; first by breaking down the content to ensure full understanding, then through regular consolidation with past papers to provide the examiners with what they are seeking. Having worked with primary/high school aged students, I have developed skills of flexibility and communication that can easily adapt to suit your learning strengths and target your weaknesses.
It is my belief that with effective study technique, a strong work ethic and clear guidance from a reliable mentor, there is no reason why a band 7 should be unachievable.
On top of our sessions, I am happy to provide detailed feedback on essay submissions and IA guidance.
I am happy to discuss location – we can meet in libraries, homes and other suitable places (preferably near public transport)
