My Story

I am an experienced Maths tutor with a background in Mathematics in both academia and industry with 20+ years experience doing teaching and research in Mathematics. I hold a Masters and PhD and have taught Maths to students in primary, secondary, university and postgraduate level Maths.

My extensive experience as a mathematical biologist also enables me to assist in learning Biology and other general Science concepts. I have plenty of experience in academic writing due to my research background, and this enables me to assist in English, specifically technical writing. I also provide assistance in History and Geography.

I am an accredited Australian Tutor (ATA), and I am a member of several tutor networks across Australia. I always have an up-to-date Working with Children Check and Police clearance which are required by the Australian government, and I can provide this information to you upon enrolment.
