UniMelb Science Tutor Johnny
Hi, I'm Johnny! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a UniMelb student studying Science.
I also tutor for the MMI (multiple mini interview) which is used for many medical school selections. I have personal experience for the Doctor of Physiotherapy and Doctor of Medicine interviews at Melbourne Uni.
I've been tutoring MMIs for all unis since I got into medicine and have had success with my previous students who have had offers of CSP in their first preference (i.e. CSP Melb MD, USyd, Deakin MBBS).
I can also give pointers/recommendations for the GAMSAT and can provide you with recommended resources.
I usually tutor at State Library but I can tutor around the CBD or Glen Waverley Area.
I will charge a discounted rate for groups of 2, 3+ etc. Please let me know and I'll give a better rate.
I am happy to also students in the holiday break so that they can be ahead.
I will cater my lessons according to your needs and I'll be willing to offer help outside of classes.
Please reach out to me earlier than later as it will help me organise other commitments and make rearrangements if required.
Johnny is a life and WAM saver. I reached out to him for help very late in Semester 1 because I had done poorly in my MSTs (50-60%) and was not grasping the key content well. He was very accommodating and accepted my request for tutoring sessions (2-2.5 hours each) 5 days in a row. Considering how little I knew and how I only had one week to get it together, the fact that I actually managed to get H1 and H2B for 2 of the subjects he tutored me (NEUR30002 and NEUR30003) was a drastic improvement to say the least. During semester break, I started getting weekly tutoring sessions for PHRM30002 so that I would be ahead of lectures and understand them better, and it paid off in the end because I got 90 for that subject and it brought my WAM up to what I needed it to get into my postgrad. Johnny often asks questions throughout the session to make sure I understood the content properly, and haven’t just been nodding along politely/blankly (definitely been called out a few times, but I’m glad he did). In May and July/August I also had MMI tutoring sessions with him, and although he hasn’t personally done interviews at some unis I applied for (ie: Usyd dent), he has done thorough research, tutored numerous students in the past, and offered great mock interview sessions. He doesn’t just give you model answers on a silver platter to memorize, but rather lets you answer questions yourself (no matter how silly or short because you simply have no idea what to say), and then help you shape it into a personalised, improved response. This way you won’t just be reciting a script, but actually get used to constructing good responses relevant to the specific questions asked at the interview. Interviewers can tell when you’re lying/trying to be a saint anyways, so be realistic and honest with your responses! Johnny can be quite frank and straightforward at times, but know that he genuinely wants to help you improve yourself; plus you’d know that he actually means it when he actually praises you haha I promise he is nice! He also responds to text and emails almost instantly (within reason), so you know you can count on him to reply to your cries for help past midnight (give him a heads up for best effect). He is very flexible with location and time, and will often work around your needs as long as he is able to. Thanks to Johnny, I felt confident walking into interviews, MSTs, and exams, and the results are there. Frequent tutoring sessions can become pricey, but I would do it all over again because I know he is a top tutor and knows what he is doing. If you are struggling with your subjects and stumbled upon his profile, don’t be afraid to message him for help – he is definitely worth it :)

Johnny has been an INCREDIBLE tutor to me for all the subjects that he has helped me in (ANAT20006, PHYS20008, PHRM20001, NEUR30002, NEUR30003, PHRM30008, PHRM30003). He has a very deep understanding in every subject and was able to give me detailed explanations of concepts I was struggling with, and he went the extra mile to ensure I understood what was going on and felt confident in my understanding. My grades have improved so much with his help! Johnny is extremely patient, very motivational, has always pushed me to do my best and my grades have improved dramatically with his help!
Highly recommend Johnny as a tutor!!
