About Me

Graduated from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Science, extended major in mathematics. I studied cross institutionally at UWA for two semesters.

Most maths and statistics units aren’t taught in ways that are simple or easy to understand. The fact that it all builds on earlier topics covered means that by a couple of weeks in, it could well look like you’re trying to learn another language. All it really takes is someone who is patient and capable of explaining the content in multiple ways until you understand it for you to be feeling confident in it.

A lot of the time you may not feel you can ask certain questions in lectures/tutes that are critical to you understanding it. Or you might be taking the unit externally and just need some one on one help. Whether you need help with this and going through the unit content, or need someone to help you catch up on work you may have missed; I am able to help! I can also help with assignments or preparing for exams.

I have a Bachelors of Science degree with an extended major in Maths and for the past 3 years I’ve been tutoring a very wide range of students and professionals in maths and statistics. A recent focus of my tutoring has been on helping undergrad and post grad students in biostatistics. In addition to that and the standard undergrad maths/stats subjects (psych stats, calculus, linear algebra etc.) I’ve also tutored a number of people looking to sit the GMAT exam to get into business school.

My main strength as a tutor lies in the fact that I’m very patient with students. I can explain the content from different angles until it sinks in in a way you understand. I’m a problem solver that likes to break down a concept and explain it as simply as possible. For most unit material, I have my own set of notes that summarises the material and the main concepts, which I find helps students greatly.

If you need help, or have any questions, feel free to contact me. I usually tutor at Curtin or Murdoch library or somewhere nearby. I'm pretty flexible with places/times and I have also provided feedback/proofread work for those studying overseas or interstate so am able to do some basic online tutoring too! I look forward to helping you in maths/stats!

My statistical analysis was quite complex and could be confusing to explain but felt a lot better and understood what to do in just a short time of Jon's tutoring. Highly recommended.
