Edward's Tutoring Experience:

Before graduating year 12 at Glenunga International High School, Edward had already been offered a job by the staff there to come back as a tutor. Despite his primary job being to assist students with learning difficulties, Edward quickly established a reputation as the “go-to guy” for anything related to maths or physics, and even went to year 12 Specialist Mathematics classes to assist the students there.

Sitting “the other side of the desk”, as it were, Edward discovered that his life-long interest in helping others translated perfectly into becoming a teacher, and he happily picked up a number of private tutoring jobs from students at Glenunga who wanted more of his help.

Whether you’re struggling with maths, or doing well and want to do better, Edward’s helped a student in a similar situation before, and he’s looking forward to doing it again.
