UniMelb Science Tutor Jared
Hi, I'm Jared! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a UniMelb student studying Science.
Also working as an exam marker and lab demonstrator for the School of Chemistry, and giving feedback to academics on how to improve the courses, I have insights and experience which no other tutor has. (Trust me, they're a bunch of rookies. The first-year coordinator recommends me exclusively - ask her yourself: Dr Sonia Horvat.)
Usually I tutor undergraduate students, but have also taught students at all levels of high school, post-graduate students in chemistry, and students preparing for the GAMSAT and MCAT. Around once a year, I complete a different short course on university-level teaching, to stay sharp.
The format of the session is up to you: You can ask about specific topics from the lecture material, we can work through past exams/tute/textbook questions, I can write my own questions for you with increasing difficulty, or we can go through all the lecture slides one-by-one, but I find the last option to be too slow. It's always best if you think about what you want to learn in a given session, having already attended the relevant lecture and tute.
I'm easy-going and friendly, and my students always enjoy themselves in our sessions. That said, I do expect my students to work hard and revise the notes from our sessions. Having been a student since 2012 (ugh...), I'm choc-full of advice on how to revise and prepare for exams. Seriously, I can talk for up to two hours just giving advice on how to survive university.
The Parkville campus of the University of Melbourne is my preferred tutoring location, but I would also be happy to tutor students in public spaces in the northern suburbs of Melbourne (e.g. cafés and libraries in Coburg, Brunswick, Pascoe Vale, etc.). Because I'm doing a PhD in theoretical chemistry, I don't have any classes or lab commitments, so I'm super flexible for tute times.
For groups of students, I charge $10 per additional person. For example, a group of two is $50 per hour, three is $60 per hour, etc.

It is not only Jared's comprehensive knowledge of maths, chemistry and physics that makes him an excellent tutor but also his attention to detail, his patience and his fantastic communication skills. I appreciate a lot that he takes time and care in breaking down complicated topics into their constituent parts and methodically explains everything to the last detail. Despite this depth of explanation, Jared also somehow manages to cover swathes of material in a fairly efficient manner leaving plenty of time for further questions when the material is particularly obscure.
