Numeracy and Literacy
Welcome to Tiger Tutoring! I’m a mathematics teacher with over 16 years’ experience teaching years 7-12 HSC Mathematics. I’ve taught at Sydney’s Knox Grammar School, International Grammar School, Australian International School Singapore and Caringbah Selective High School.
I am results driven and in 2017 all of my HSC Mathematics Advanced students achieved a Band 6 (90% or above) and 26 of my 28 students received 90% or above in Mathematics Extension 1.
I believe in instilling a sense of enjoyment and personal achievement from learning.
Through the use of encouragement and positive reinforcement, I cultivate in each student the confidence in their own ability to work through any problem.
By fostering the development of a growth mindset, I encourage students to understand that their intelligence is not fixed, and that they are capable of building and expanding their knowledge regardless of how difficult the concept seems at the time!
SERVICE TO THE COMMUNITY
I am privileged to be a Coordinator of the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award.
This program aims to create a well-rounded individual who learns a skill, plays a sport and serves his or her community.
As I endeavour to lead by example, last July I took a group of students to Cambodia to teach English to underprivileged children.
The goal was to educate students about the conditions faced by less privileged people around the world and instil in them
a desire to make a difference. We are currently raising funds for high school scholarships for Cambodian children
to attend school from years 7-12 and to provide water filters to villages to reduce waterborne diseases.
