USYD Science Tutor Mary
Hi, I'm Mary! VERY RESPONSIVE
I'm a USYD student studying Science.
I have five years experience tutoring High School and University students, including first-year maths students, second-year BMED, MEDS and AMED students, and third-year PHSI, MICRO, HSTO and CPAT students.
My goal for all my students is not only to achieve the best possible marks but also learn fundamental study skills that can be implemented for the rest of their degrees and career.
I completed a Bachelor degree from the University of Sydney in Medical Science in 2016, majoring in Physiology and Cell Pathology with an HD average in all subjects. In 2017 I completed an Honours year on liver cancer at the Westmead Institute of Medical Research and graduated with first class Honours. I am currently studying Doctor of Dental Medicine at USYD.
My teaching style is very focused on the student and their needs, but also emphasising how to implement effective study techniques - you don't need to study hard, just study smart!! Presenting data generated throughout my Honours year in front of various well-respected deans and other academics significantly improved my communication skills, which allows me to simplify complex concepts and keep students engaged. I'm also happy to help/edit any assignments, including practical write-ups and presentations.
Additionally, I sell comprehensive unit study notes (complete 13 weeks of lectures + tutorials + practicals + exam tips) for all core second-year BMED units, all third-year PHSI and CPAT units, and MICRO3011, as well as electronic textbooks related to Medical Science. Shoot me a message for more details!
Mary is an amazing tutor! She's friendly, organised and patient. Very knowledgeable but also kind and down to earth. She makes tricky concepts accessible and easy to understand. So helpful, highly recommended.

Mary tutored me for Math1014 and she was incredible! I struggled with many concepts and the lectures confused me. However, she was able to break them down for me to understand in a few hours. She is very flexible and alters her teaching style to suit you. She is also very friendly!! I would highly recommend her if you are wanting to walk into quizzes and exams confident.

Mary tutored me for MATH1013 and was so patient and extremely proficient in the subject! She helped me so much and assisted me in filling in any gaps I had in a super kind and non judgemental way! I would recommend Mary to anyone who is looking for a gentle lovely tutor who also knows so much about the subjects which she teaches!

Mary is a great tutor! she helped me with maths which is a weakness of mine. I had gaps in my maths knowledge which i explained to Mary and she was able to cater the lesson to my specific needs, ensuring i was more confident in the topics i struggled with. Mary was able to answer all my questions and broke them down in a way that was much simpler and easier to understand. She is also very kind, patient and understanding and I highly recommend her as a tutor. Stefanie

I’ve only had one lesson with Mary but she has already helped me out so much. She’s tutored me for MATH1013 and covered several topics in only one hour. She’s very thorough when explaining and answers any questions you have. She has a great character and is very supportive and understanding. I would definitely get another tutoring session from her and highly recommend her to everyone else !

Mary is a very experienced tutor and is very helpful in explaining all different concepts and problems in BMED2404, 2405 and 2406. I would highly recommend her as a tutor if you are struggling with these subjects.Also the notes she provided is extremely useful and contains all the details for these units.

Whether it was being introduced to something new, or going over something for the 5th time, Mary was understanding, supportive and so helpful. She ensured I understood everything; from the basics, to the trickier content. Not only did this help me stress less, it inadvertently resulted in me genuinely enjoying the subject (HSTO3001). Mary is an extremely talented tutor, she enabled me to walk away from each tutoring session more confident than the last. She is a proactive and knowledgable tutor. I would 110% recommend Mary to anyone that is seeking any help, large or small, for any of her subjects offered.

Mary was extremely helpful in providing me with constructive feedback on my paper. I would definitely recommend her as a tutor and will not hesitate to contact her again in the future!

Mary is perfect. I believe that Mary has consistently demonstrated evidence of being an excellent communicator, an advocate, a scholar, a manager and a professional, enabling her to effectively interact with the multidisciplinary teams in which she works, students she nurtures, carers, other professionals and the public. I believe that she has the personal characteristics associated with a successful career in the field of science and medicine. Mary possesses aptitude similar to or beyond that expected by first-rate doctor-scientists. I have found her to be perfect, very wise, intensely compassionate, and deeply committed to putting her exceptional qualities to the service of the greater good of society.
