Information about Nicholas - Stanmore tutor
This is how 2 referees rated Nicholas:
I am a dedicated Science Teacher with a passion for astro-biochemistry. I have completed a Bachelor of Science in Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry & Physics along with a Masters of Teaching in the learning areas of Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Earth and Environmental Science and Senior Science at Sydney Uni.
I am currently working as a Science Teacher in the Inner West of Sydney and enjoy making science fun and engaging for kids of all ages and abilities.
I have 6 years of full time Department of Education teaching experience dealing with students from varying backgrounds and levels of academic ability. During that time, I have assisted students successfully through each of the secondary grades including HSC preparation in the fields of Science, Physics, Chemistry and Biology. Students I have taught have gone on to enjoy and excel in all areas of life and academia at Australian and overseas educational institutions including Ivy League Universities on full academic scholarships.
I have also had experience in privately tutoring students over the last 3 years, where I have received positive feedback from both students and parents alike.
Similarly to my classroom teaching approach, I believe delivering the content is only part of the job. My approach includes laying down the basic foundational strategies to help students understand the process of learning and responding while developing strong problem solving abilities.
Specifically, in the initial sessions I start with an assessment of the student's current understanding and capabilities then discuss the desired grade outcome and areas of possible improvement. I then personalise my tutoring to suit the student's individual needs to not just add knowledge of content but to add understanding of how they most easily and effectively learn.
Simply - I teach students they way they best learn and I show students how to achieve their best results.
