John's Tutoring Experience:

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

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 course 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.
