I am Learning Advisor with a Ph.D. in Science. I have been tutoring and advising both school and university level students for over 19 years. I am also the winner of 2 Australian Awards for University Teaching.
I am passionate about education and I love to help students reach their potential. I know that sometimes students need extra support in order to improve their grades, confidence and overall learning experience. I can assist students of all ages with their study skills and/or I can also provide more specialised biology tuition. I always ensure that I embed effective study and learning strategies into any science tutorials.
During an initial consultation, I will determine your/your child's current learning and studying needs. A bespoke Success Plan is then developed, usually consisting of a number of tailored Learning Advising sessions.
As a Biology Tutor, I can help with:
-Year 11 and Year 12 Biology
-University level Biology
-General Science in Years 1-10
- Science engagement at kindergarten and pre-school levels
As a Learning Advisor, I can also help with:
-Explaining how the brain learns
-Effective exam preparation - university and high school level
-Essay writing and assignment tasks - university and high school levels
-University preparation sessions - an individualised pre-Orientation!
-Postgraduate study and thesis support (Masters, Ph.D.)
-Learning mindset and support at kindergarten and pre-school levels
I possess a current Blue Card for Working With Children.
I currently have many openings for online sessions via Zoom - I have over 4 years of experience in providing online support and the Zoom software enables effective tutorials via video chat, screen share and digital whiteboard. Online sessions are charged at a discounted cost of $80/hour (+GST). There are a few openings for in-person sessions around Brisbane and some suburbs in Logan, and these sessions are charged at $100/hour (+GST). Travel to other areas can sometimes be arranged but would include an additional fee.
I look forward to assisting you and your family :-)
