Aim Academics One-on-One Tutoring

Every student is unique, and learns in their own unique way, making it impossible for a single teaching style to guarantee all students understand a particular concept. This is where One-on-One tutoring makes all the difference. 

Aim Academics offers One-on-One tutoring, where our tutors offer a highly personalised approach to teaching that allows students to learn at their own speed and further develop and apply their current knowledge – giving areas of struggle the focus they deserve.

John's Tutoring Experience:

 

Throughout the past few years, John has been offering one-on-one tutoring and hosting weekly tutoring workshops for Chemistry and Biology.

In January this year, he also hosted Headstart Courses for these subjects, where one student, Isabella, wrote:

“Absolutely loved John’s teaching style, loved the way that I was able to make connections and understand the content without having to memorise anything.”

John work’s closely with his students in mentoring them in developing effective and efficient science-backed study techniques which allow them to experience significant improvements in their test/exam and assignment grades. 

In October 2020, John hosted Exam Preparation Courses for these subjects through Aim Academics, where his Chemistry courses reached capacity and sold out within a few days of sales opening. 

The average raw ATAR of students he tutored in 2019 and 2020 was 93.70, with 15% of his students achieving a 99+ ATAR, many of which were seeking tertiary studies in Medicine, Dentistry and Science.

“I had John as a tutor for over a year and I can confirm that he’s more than if not over qualified to help you succeed! I’ve always struggled with asking for help out of the fear of being made to feel dumb for not knowing something but John is someone who will never make you feel less than for not knowing something. If you’re struggling with a concept he will explain it in a way that you can understand but if you still don’t get it he will find other ways to explain the same concept until you understand. His willingness to go above and beyond for his students is why he makes an excellent tutor. I’ve met a few tutors and I don’t find them as passionate about teaching as John is, John’s passion to help share the knowledge he has with his students is what separates him from other tutors. If you have someone as passionate as John willing to help you you’re destined to do well. Another unique thing about John is his ability to make studying what can be boring and tedious content fun and interesting. John does this by adding interesting scientific facts related to the concept we are learning that we may not necessarily need to know but it keeps things interesting!”
