I'm a USYD student studying Law.


Per hour


Started uni
Hey guys! My name is Jerry and I'm currently a 2nd year student at USyd, majoring in International Relations and Law. I love both of these areas and would like to impart some of that energy and enthusiasm to help make your uni journey more enjoyable!

Subjects I tutor:
GOVT1621 (Intro to IR) - 91
GOVT1641 (Intro to Politics) - 89
CLAW1001 (Foundations of Business Law) - 91
LAWS1014 (Civil and Criminal Procedure) - 85
LAWS1015 (Contracts) - 87

My teaching style:
- Help you develop critical thinking! This phrase is too often thrown around haphazardly in examiner's comments, but I will provide the specific tips that has worked for me in getting HDs in the past.
- Ensure that you are caught up with the course content and answer any questions you might have! It's always difficult to ask tutor questions (particularly in these trying times) but I will try my best to answer questions and conceptualize ideas in a more straightforward way!
- Suggest further reading material that has helped me in getting the grades I did and which I think would be helpful in elucidating some of the trickier concepts that tutors often skim through.
- Prepare you with essay writing tips! It's very hard to gauge the "right" way of writing an essay, particularly when you're a first-year student, but it's actually really easy if you know the tricks! I will provide examples and help you navigate this criterion so that you'll always ace it in your assignments!
- Proofread and provide detailed feedback on your essays according to the given criteria.

What I won't do:
- Do your assignment for you (in whole or in part). This is a violation of university practices and will lead to serious trouble for both sides, so best avoid it altogether :)))

About me & Teaching arrangements:
- My native languages are English and Vietnamese, and I am relatively fluent in Japanese (so could help with that if it comes up)!
- I'm currently overseas right now, so unfortunately everything will have to be online :(( I'm OK teaching via Skype, Zoom, Discord or Messenger.
- Due to the amount of prep required, my fee is $90/hour. However, discounts may be available for groups and/or multiple (>3) sessions per week upon further negotiation.
- Proofread and feedback is $50/paper, but if verbal feedback and discussion is required tthan the fee will be the standard $90.
- Cancellations should be made 12hrs in advance (cancellations within 12 hrs will incur a 50% surcharge)

I look forward to helping you in your uni studies! If you're interested or have any questions, please feel free to contact me and I'll be happy to discuss things further.
