In the ideal case I always try to build up from the fundamentals and have the student properly grasp and appreciate the beauty of the concept in question. Ultimately the student is not going to spend most of their time studying with me so it is very important that I stir up their own passion for the subject. In my experience this tends to happen on its own once the student has a good understanding but because I am studying applied mathematics I can conjure up many examples of applications for all areas studied in Specialist Mathematics including imaginary numbers.
I am currently undergrad studying mathematics at the University of Melbourne. My main areas of interest are non-linear dynamics, chaos and complexity and computational irreducibly a la Stephen Wolfram. I was awarded the mathematics award in my year level at Belmont High and went on to take the notorious first year subjects Accelerated Mathematics 1 & 2 at The University of Melbourne (38 raw in Specialist Math required for admittance).
I have about 3 months of volunteer tutoring once per week under my belt but I was also known for helping my fellow class mates during High School Studies.
Also happy to provide tutoring in Physics
My rate is negotiable for students in difficult circumstances as I was during year 12. I lived independently in government supported accommodation due to family dysfunction, I will be sympathetic to students in similar situations.

Josh is a talented and passionate Mathematics student with a knack for intuitive explanations
Josh and I went to high school together, and he helped me through maths and physics. He was an absolute lifesaver. He was more helpful to me than any textbook, or teacher. When I couldn’t understand something a teacher was explaining, I would go to Josh’s table and get his help (as many others in our class did).
Josh wouldn’t only offer simple explanations to problems and questions, but would pinpoint exactly what it was that I couldn’t understand, and explain it to me so that every thing clicked into place.
I cannot speak more highly of Josh’s teaching ability. Even though we attend different universities now I still call him up for help with problems! He’s fantastic, and will be a blessing to any student he tutors.
Josh is an exemplar of mathematics, and a very communicable and helpful person to learn from. He helped me immensely when we were in high school together and he will be a great help to anyone lucky enough to have him as a tutor.
