Personal Description:

A qualified, experienced VCE teacher with the skills, knowledge and drive to help you get the most from your VCE exams.

I also write Science Blogs for the Royal Institute of Australia (RIAus) **Removed By Admin**

My students have always enjoyed my teaching because of my fun, energetic and engaging lessons. I love my subject and it shows.

Tuition Experience:

I spent the first four years of teaching in Scotland before moving to Melbourne and teaching for the last three years at a very successful public high school.

My 2016 VCE Bio class got the best average study score of the five class in the school, with 45% of my class achieving an A or higher in the final exam!

Tutoring Approach:

Being successful in a VCE exam is about two things:
1. knowing the content, and
2. knowing how to pass an exam in that subject.

You can know the study design inside and out but if you don't know how to unpack an exam question and give the examiner what they're looking for, then you won't get the most out of your exam.

How can I help you to become successful in your exams?
1. Biology is freaking awesome! I know and love my subject - this means I can make the content more relevant, engaging and exciting. I'll break down the content into manageable chunks and give you the resources to help learn all that awesome knowledge.

2. What's the difference between knowing and understanding? The difference is the final grade you get in the exam.
Nothing exists in isolation in Biology and seeing how it all relates is key to passing the exam! Exams are designed to find out who understands the links between Units and Areas of Study, I'll help you see these links and, importantly, show you how to get in the mind of the examiner and figure out what you need to do to get full marks in exam questions.

In addition to individual or small group tutoring, I'll be available by email and/or Skype to help you between tutoring sessions.

Tutoring can take place in a number of locations: your favourite coffee spot, the library or home - wherever works best for you to concentrate and focus.
