IB:44 or ATAR: 99.85 - Melbourne University Scholarship Student Teaching High School and University Physics

About the lesson

What I find that most students find troubling in math and physics is that they simply don't "make any sense". As someone who spent quite a lot of time feeling the same during high school, I can understand just how unsettling it is to see random collections of letters and numbers passing as formulas. Most teachers, for whatever reason, don't seem to dive into what it is that these formulas mean, as much as they are concerned with how they are used. I'm not really sure if that's the best for deep learning.

To get mastery over a subject, I believe the key lies in understanding the foundations to the point that the complicated stuff is just the next logical progression - not a wild and blind leap. Once the fundamentals are in place, everything else follows (including grades).

My teaching puts this into practice, as I work on cementing the fundamental concepts to the level that the end formula would be staring you in the face before you know it.

About Gautam

3 years of STEM tutoring experience.
Currently working as a teaching member of staff at the University of Melbourne while studying, I have been tutoring for two years, and have a very good record with my students. I graduated from the IB Diploma program in 2018 with a score of a 44/45 (or 99.85 ATAR Equivalent). After getting my diploma, I began tutoring other students - turning their annoyance with classically challenging subjects like Mathematics and Physics into an intrigue that fueled that learning. Naturally, the grades got better too.
