Hello! My name is Shayden and I'm a medical intern. Please read the student testimonials on my tutoring at the bottom of this page. I completed my undergraduate degree in Science with a major in Neuroscience and a Breadth stream in Philosophy, completing all my major and minor subjects with a H1 average. I scored an 85 on Section 2 of the GAMSAT (100th Percentile), and maintained a H1 average in my 3rd year philosophy subjects. I have been tutoring for 5 years, and I have a strong passion for assisting students in developing their writing skills, particularly for the unique challenge posed by section 2 of the GAMSAT. I am currently working for GradReady as a Humanities Tutor and content developer, and I have hosted several Humanities webinars for them. I also tutor essay writing across a wide range of subjects, and I have extensive experience in marking and critiquing student essays. In addition to this, I offer sessions targeted at building skills towards success in the MMI (multiple mini interview) for medicine entry. My tutoring is tailored to the individual needs of the student, and covers everything from basic essay structuring to idea generation/content development and vocabulary/writing skills. This is not a basic universally applied template, but a targeted strategy which can be shaped to meet the needs and goals of the student. I always employ a respectful and compassionate approach to tutoring, and my ultimate goal is not to make this a cash for time type arrangement, but a genuine effort towards enabling students to attain their goals. I understand that student time is valuable and that tuition is expensive, especially for students who are working part time whilst studying. Tutoring Locations: - On/near campus (UniMelb Parkville) - Online (Zoom/Skype) - Other locations can be discussed Rates: - GAMSAT Section 2: $75/hour individual, $50/hour 2 students - Other academic writing/essay writing/marking: $40/essay

Shayden played a pivotal role in securing my acceptance into my dream course! His tutoring was tailored precisely to my learning style, and his teaching approach was both engaging and easily comprehensible. His genuine passion for aiding students in achieving their goals was evident throughout our sessions. Shayden provided invaluable insights into Section 2 of the GAMSAT, ensuring I felt thoroughly prepared for the exam. Post-GAMSAT, his assistance extended to interview preparation, offering detailed and constructive feedback. I cannot emphasise enough how highly I recommend Shayden's support and guidance. Thank you so much Shayden!

Cannot recommend Shayden enough! His approach is super friendly, non-judgemental and easy to follow. In probably only about 8-9 lessons, Shayden helped me improve the standard of my writing from low 50s to a 71!

I cannot recommend Shayden enough as a GAMSAT Section 2 tutor. He consistently provided me with constructive feedback on my essays, challenging me to think critically about the prompts and approach each essay with a clear and concise thesis. After just a few sessions, my confidence grew significantly, and I felt equipped to approach a wide range of topics and write well-structured essays in the short time given. I feel that Shayden genuinely cares for his students' success and can be recommended to anyone!

Shayden is an amazing tutor! He is very approachable and knowledgable, and provided me with everything I needed to succeed in S2. With Shayden's help just 1 month before the exam I improved from a 62 in S2 to a 74! Highly recommend!

I cannot recommend Shayden enough for GAMSAT section II tutoring. He is extremely knowledgeable about a wide range of topics and is great at providing guidance on how to structure the essay and for understanding high-yield topics :) Thanks so much Shayden!

Shayden is a rare and phenomenal tutor. He is incredibly articulate and possesses an unmatched wealth of knowledge. I began improving dramatically in Section 2 after a few lessons due to the very thorough feedback Shayden provided. On top of that, Shayden accommodated my hectic schedule with great flexibility and demonstrated outstanding patience. I wish I reached out to him sooner!

Shayden was a fantastic Section 2 + MMI tutor. I think Shayden's biggest strength is his ability to go back to first principles. For Section 2, he helped to crystallise my ideas into clear concepts. For the MMI, he broke down each station into the core attributes that were being assessed. In the nebulous application process, being able to bring this clarity to tutoring is critical. I would highly recommend him for either Section 2 of the GAMSAT or MMI tutoring.

Shayden brings phenomenal breadth of knowledge, ideas, and understanding for the goal at hand. Shayden designs each interaction with the focus on the needs of the student. For potential students of Shayden, you will be relieved you took the chance. Well done, Shayden!

Shayden was a tremendous help in preparing for my upcoming gamsat! With only a few sessions I felt my language and structure of my section 2 essays improved immensely! He was super accomodating and went out of his way to assist my friend and I in our last minute study for the gamsat. Couldn’t recommend more highly :)

Shayden is a remarkable tutor! I really struggled with section 2, particularly with idea generation and essay structuring, and he has helped me immensely. Shayden has a wide range of knowledge and super interesting ideas/evidence for any topic you could think of. I really appreciated how personalised his tutoring approach was, as he made sure to always help build ideas around what I wanted to write about and tailored his tutoring to help improve my specific weaknesses. I also felt really comfortable sharing my ideas/essays with Shayden, as he was always really respectful and supportive. I highly recommend Shayden as a tutor!!

Shayden is a great mentor! Over 1 month, I've really grown to love section 2 - being a section I was challenged by in my preparation in the past. He was also really helpful in section 1, particularly in the challenging passages. Additionally, Shayden maintains a high standard of professionalism and respect throughout our lessons. Thanks Shayden!
