About Me

Hi, my name is Kenneth and I am a tutor specialising in Mathematics and Science, with 5+ years’ experience both tutoring privately and at a professional tutoring centre. My teaching style focuses on firstly, explaining the difficult and daunting concepts, in a clear and easy-to-understand method. Part of my lessons also place emphasis on not only helping students for their exam preparation, but also on targeting the core understanding of mathematical concepts and/or scientific content to facilitate continued classroom learning, resulting in an accumulation of improvement and confidence in STEM subjects.

Personally, I have experience in studying higher mathematics, mathematical integration and statistics at a university level, achieving high distinction and distinction. I also have continued experience in both chemistry research, in the area of particle catalysis, and have had my work published in a scientific journal along with other particle catalysis researchers. This equips me with not only a deep understanding of both mathematical and chemistry concepts, but my experience of consistently working with students enables me to point out common areas of error within mathematical calculations and areas of potential difficulty in understanding the content within science and chemistry. I prioritise explaining complicated calculations and mathematical areas in a clear and comprehensible manner, which also helps students build a strong foundation for their later studies.


FURTHER ACHIEVEMENTS IN MATHEMATICS AND SCIENCE:

• Mathematics Advanced: Ranked top 3 in Year 11 and Year 12
• 95%+ average in HSC internal and preliminary exams for Mathematics Advanced
• 95%+ average in Year 10 mathematics, rank 1 in the cohort
• HSC school internal mark 95/100, top 3 in the cohort
• HSC Band 6 in Chemistry
• HSC High Achiever Award presented by the school, special recognition in mathematics and chemistry
• Received first-round offer for BEng (Hons) from UNSW
• UNSW graduate with DISTINCTION
• Honours graduate, completed post-doctoral research on Nanoparticle Catalysis under the School of Chemical Engineering at UNSW Engineering
• Consistent High Distinctions in all UNSW Mathematics courses
• High Distinction in UNSW Engineering Design course undertaken

I am also a very patient and supportive tutor as I understand the confusion and difficulty which can be caused by complex mathematical concepts, equations and scientific calculations. All my lessons are always catered to each student’s individual needs and capabilities, and in the lead-up to exams, I will make priority in targeting past exam papers, pointing out various methods to solve a question, and working with you to be alert to, and avoid potential areas of error.

Please feel free to contact me if you’d like to book a trial lesson, and I will do my best to fit you in at a time that is suitable.

From the compulsory enforcement of Mandarin as a subject throughout my primary school and high school curriculum, I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking Mandarin/Simplified Chinese.

Mandarin is an interesting language integrated with 5000 years of Chinese culture. As China's growth in economic power, Mandarin will soon be essential for business, tourism, and even daily interaction.

Life is a lot easier with guidance, and I am here for you. Right after I finished my HSC, I was a high school leaver with no direction to my future. But with extensive research on career opportunities, market and future prospects of specialities, I knew exactly what interests me and hence what I will choose to do.

How did I do that? Let me share my experience with you and guide you to a brighter future.

Kenneth is a wonderful and highly skilled maths and chemistry tutor, and has helped my son a lot since he started learning with Kenneth.

Kenneth can explain complicated and confusing maths concepts in really clear ways, and my son says Kenneth has taught him many fast methods of solving mathematical equations, and pointed out common errors and pitfalls in exams, which helped him get 95% for his recent exam. Chemistry was initially also challenging for my son, but with kenneths assistance my son recently achieved 100% for both his latest exams, and really enjoys chemistry too.

I would not hesitate to recommend kenneth, he is an excellent and extremely patient and knowledgeable tutor.

Kenneth is a great tutor who is currently assisting me throughout my HSC Mathematics General Course, he has helped me boost my grades in Maths by providing useful tips and tricks when tackling complicated equations and my marks in comparison to Year 11 have shown his teaching to be extremely effective. He is very patient and always eager to provide the quickest yet practical solution to any mathematical equation. Would 10/10 recommend!!
