James King 

Subjects: All subjects K-6, Physics 7-12, Chemistry 7-10, Music 7-10, All levels of Mathematics.

Hi, my name is James and I am in the third year of my double bachelor degree in statistics and science majoring in mathematics. I graduated from Hawker College in 2012 where I majored in physics, chemistry and mathematics.

I decided to get into tutoring because I enjoy helping others learn. I have dedicated a lot of time helping peers struggling with understanding their subjects in the past and I enjoy seeing the moment when everything clicks for them.

Every student is different and one of my favorite things about tutoring is working with the student to find the best way to approach a problem. In my opinion helping someone look at a problem in a different light and helping them understand it is one the highlights of being a tutor.

I look forward to working with you.

Frances Lafferty

Subjects: Primary, 7-12 Maths, English, Chemistry, History

Hello, my name is Frances Lafferty and I am a first year Bachelor of Nursing student at University of Canberra. I graduated from Narrabundah College in 2015 with great results, including a Distinction in the ANU Secondary College's Chemistry course. Throughout my schooling, I have studied a range of facilities; from Ancient History to Specialist Maths. This diversity has helped me develop many study skills that can be applied to help students of all backgrounds and ages. However, my goal is not simply to help teach, it is to help students to know how to learn so that they may be able to move on with their studies without my help and, hopefully, enjoy their time at school. I hope that the techniques that I have developed to study effectively can also be beneficial to those whom I tutor. I look forward to working with you.

My name is Sanduni, Currently pursuing my PhD at University of New South Wales, Canberra campus. I obtained my first degree in Business Management from University of Wales (UK) and I pursued Masters in Business Administration in 2015. I am a University Lecturer by profession and I am passionate in teaching, helping students with their school work and assignments as well.  I am committed in providing students with a good education which will prepare them not only for the world of work but also adult life.

I believe with my life experience, philosophical expertise, and academic ability, I can bring out the full potential in the student both academically and in life.

Hi, my name is Ellie.  I am friendly, encouraging and cheerful.  I come from northern NSW but am currently living in Canberra and enjoying my 2nd year at the ANU, studying a Bachelor of International Relations with a minor in French.  In 2018, I will be an academic mentor in my ANU residence.  I completed my HSC in 2015 with strong results across all subject areas.

Being a university student, I understand the importance of having great study techniques.  As a tutor, I aim to help my students find what works for them, so they can work to their full potential.  Alongside helping my students with subject content, it can be important to work on improving study skills and strategies.  I aim to help students become more independent and confident learners.

Aditi Chandra 

Subjects: All Primary Subjects, Year 7-10 Subjects, Senior Chemistry, Biology and Advanced Mathematics 

Hi! My name is Aditi and I have just completed my IB Diploma at Canberra Girls Grammar School in 2017. I am currently taking a gap year, where I hope to gain some work experience and hopefully travel through Europe in the latter part of the year. At school I really enjoyed Chemistry, Maths and Biology and so am planning to do Biomedical Engineering in UNSW next year.  

Throughout high school I tutored many younger students in a range of subjects and am excited I get to continue doing this now that I have graduated. During year 11 and 12 I definitely faced many struggles in trying to learn and understand the course content, however this has enabled me to find new ways of learning and I am always eager to share my tips and tricks with others. 

Tegan Clark

Subjects: All Primary Subjects, All Year 7-10 Subjects, All levels of Senior Mathematics, Advanced English, Physics & Chemistry 

Hello! My name is Tegan and I am currently studying a Bachelor of Science (Advanced) (Honours) at the Australian National University. I finished Grade 12 in Cairns in 2017 and received an OP2 (which correlates to an atar of around 98.0-98.5). I was awarded Senior Dux for achieving the highest or second to highest grades in all of my classes, plus various subject awards and gold awards for both English and Maths.

My achievements stemmed from my love for learning and studying and is also the reason why I wanted to become a tutor. I want to be able to motivate and inspire other students to take a more proactive approach to their studies and to love learning as much as I do! During high school, I was always approached by fellow students for help with their studies and I always felt joy and satisfaction from being able to help them and was inspired to one day become a tutor. 

My main aim as a tutor is to make a friendly, approachable and accepting environment for all my students so they can gain a love for learning and to give them confidence in their learning abilities. I am aware that each person learns differently and believe I can individualise my lessons for each student so they can learn more effectively and get more enjoyment out of learning.
