Monash Engineering/Biomedical Science student tutors maths lessons to Melbourne high school students

Methodology

"Friendly", "approachable" ,"enthusiastic", "interesting", "bad-ass in mathematics and science", these are probably the words you will think about me and my lessons.

I strongly believes that the interaction between a tutor and a student is one of the most important factors in the tuition. We should be partners because tuition takes more than professional knowledge to accomplish but also the understanding and sharing takes a significant role in it. In order to find the best way to help you achieve a better score, I need to know how you like me to tutor you.

Which is why, the FIRST LESSON for you is FOR FREE!!!

For the first lesson, it will last an hour. For the first 30 minutes, you will have a diagnostic test which is targeted at the current year you are in for the subject. During this time, I will look into your reports and assignments from school to know more about your strength and weakness. For the rest of the time, I will chat with you about how I will help you to get rid of your disadvantage in the subject and improve your advantage. Of course, you could give me suggestions about how you want me to assist you, so we both are happy!!!

For the lessons after, I will bring you summary notes for the topics you are doing in your subject and some practices questions for you to answer. Because mathematics takes time and practise to master. The more you practice, the more you will gain. Like the saying "Practice makes perfect". At the end of the lessons, I will left you with some worksheets as homework, so you can gain more practices.

Please REMEMBER, you can always share with me about what happened in your school and always give me suggestions about how to help you. And I promise that I will be a good listener and a humble partner who considers your advice seriously.

Background

I have been a tutor for almost 2 years. I have had four students in these two years. All of them have achieved the scores they have set for them, which is fantastic. Each of them passed their exams successfully and also earned the fantastic score which they have never thought. One of them even get a Distinction after he participated UNSW Global.

Being a partner with these students and sharing our own daily story with each other. Watching them try their best to improve themselves everyday and eventually accomplish the mark they want perfectly. I feel much happier than me getting 100% mark in the exam myself. This strong interaction and enthusiasm which I possess is what makes a good tutor.

I will communicate with you prior to the lesson and find out what topics you need help with so I can prepare myself to answer any question that you may throw at me. I will also go through the study design and make sure I fully understand how it all works. I am going to encourage the students to surround themselves with other high achieving students which will motivate them to study hard. Moreover, I will assist my student to stay at least a step ahead of the class pace, so the student can have multiple teaching to reinforce their understanding about the topics.

Zicong's CV

For now, I am trying to get the scholarship of Biomedical Science from my university. I have acquired a certificate of First Aid level 1 and 2 recently.

For my own achievements, when I was in the High school, I have participated UNSW Global and Australian Mathematics Competition several time, and I got a couple of certificates of Distinction.
In my VCE, I have achieved an ATAR score of 98.15 and the score of my specialist mathematics, mathematical methods and chemistry are 47.02, 44.98 and 41.95 respectively.

During my career of being a tutor, one of them is a Year 10 student who was really struggling with the mathematics and lack of confidence in himself. So I let him set simple goals first and keep telling him that it only takes time and experience to make him become a maths genius. I saw and witnessed him improving everyday with his determination in enhancing his mathematics. Only in two months, he has achieved the 100% mark in his maths test for the first time.

Zicong has been my team mate for a university subject last year. He is very committed, shows willingness to learn and always seeks to improve upon his present abilities. He would be a great teacher

Matthew

Leo is relatable, humorous and understanding. He’s patient and knowledgeable and would be willing to move along at whatever speed is required. I believe because of these reasons, Leo would make a fantastic teacher and any student would be lucky to have him.

J
Jason

He’s an awesome mate, genuine and overall a funny guy. Academically, I’m confident when I say he knows his stuff well

G
Gladys

Leo is highly enthusiastic, dedicated and has a sense of humour. He is a diligent worker and will definitely do his best in assisting students with their studies.

H
Helena

I went to high school with Zicong (Leo) and know him personally. He is a friendly and approachable person who can converse fluently in both English and Chinese, which is a great advantage for students who do not speak English as their first language. With his strong academic performance paired with his ability to work well with others, I believe that Zicong (Leo) will make a good tutor.

Julie

I went to the same high school as Zicong (Leo). Being a highly motivated, enthusiastic and industrious student himself, he is going to do a good job passing on his wisdom and mindset onto his students as well. I'm sure Leo will make a great tutor who genuinely supports his students and helps them improve.

R
Razor

Zicong is a funny and focused person, he tends to take his teaching abilities up a notch to provide students with more confidence with their maths ability, therefore he always tries to explain maths questions informatively to the best he could and make sure that they fully understand.

Horace

He is a high achiever in VCE. I believe that he will be an inspiration figure to his students.

Arthur

Hard working and willing to put all effort into helping others, you won't regret it.

Alex

Zicong is always an intelligent, hard worker in nature, who solves his challenges so elegantly. But what stands out most is that he persists and never gives in. He carried this positive energy and passed onto his fellow Year 12 maths peers who were in trouble, and motivated them further. His charm and smarts are unparalleled and I strongly recommend him to anyone who needs help.
