Received High Distinction of Master of Physics. Awarded to one of the best graduating student in Master of Physics of the year
I am a fulltime tutor and offering one-on-one tutoring lessons for high school students. I teach following subjects for year 11 and year 12:
•International Baccalaureate (IB) Mathematics HL, SL and Studies SL
•International Baccalaureate (IB) Physics HL and SL
•International Baccalaureate (IB) Chemistry SL
•HSC Mathematics 2U, 3U and 4U
And also teach maths for Year 7, Year 8, Year 9 and Year 10 students.
There were 10 IB students taken exam in last year. They all achieved great results. One student got full IB marks 45 which equivalent the maximum rank of ATAR 99.95, two 43(ATAR 99.75) and two 42(ATAR 99.45).
1.My daughter achieved full mark 45 (ATAR 99.95). Band 7 on Math HL. Your help on her achievement is highly appreciated.
2.My son got 7 in Maths (higher level), total 43 out of 45 (ATAR 99.75). Thanks a lot for your coaching.
1.I wanted to let you know I got band/grade 7 for Maths. I received 42 out of 45 for my final IB exams! This is an ATAR of 99.45. Thank you so much for everything!
2.I got 7 in physics and 6 in maths which only 1 percentage point off a 7 so hopefully I will be able to remark to aim for a 7 . Thank you so much for all your help with both subjects over the past couple of years, I feel like it made all the difference !
3.Just got my IB results today and I got a 6 in Physics HL and a 42 overall. Thank you so much for helping me out with physics because I'm really happy with my mark!!

Tips of preparing for the Examination
•Plan a study timetable: Obviously, your final preparations are a part of your overall study plan. For this you need to plan a study timetable. You may not stick to it rigidly, but that is not the point. In planning your final approach to the exam, you will develop a realistic view of the available time for each subject, and for each topic within each subject. Instead of making a detailed study plan as to what exactly you will study each day, it is better to make a list of all you need to revise in each subject and then plan which subject to study each day.
•Study two subjects per day: It is recommended that you study two subjects per day and that you include all subjects each week and not focus solely on one subject for a whole week at a time. For example, you may study English and Maths one day, Biology and Modern History the next day, Physics and Drama the following day – and then repeat this pattern every three days.
•Going through all subjects: It is important to keep all subjects going through the holidays. This will however be affected by your exam timetable – if you have a whole week or more between two subjects, you may spend less time on that subject during the holidays, but you should not leave it all to that gap during the exams.
•Commit to memory: Be careful to actually learn work in the holidays. Don’t get bogged down making more notes and summaries. That should be completed already. Now is the time to learn, to study, and to commit to memory. Test yourself by writing down points you have learnt or by saying things aloud. Don’t just read through your notes as even repeated reading will not put the facts into your head – you need to learn the fact.
•Keep good Time frame: It is important during the holidays, to get up early in the morning and study from say 9am to 12noon and then 2 – 5pm. This is the same time frame that your body will have to get used to during the exam period and it is not a good idea in the holidays to vary this time frame. So don’t get up late and then study till late at night as then, when the exams start, your body will take a while to readjust to a new time frame. Six hours per day is the minimum that you should study – in a maximum of three hour sessions but it is recommended that you take a short 2 minute break every so often during the three hour session. It is important to remember that repetition is what leads to memory retention – so learn something one day and then the next morning take half an hour at the start of the day to go over what you learnt the previous day.
Reward yourself with breaks when you have been working hard. In saying all of this, make sure you work at times that suit you – sitting there for hours when you are achieving nothing doesn’t earn you a medal – if you are getting tired, change location, or take a break and come back soon to continue on with work!
•Learn from website: Learn from the students of years gone by. By visiting student forum in websites, you are able to access the comments of the markers from previous year’s exams. It is worth reading, as it provides some helpful information and insights what will assist your completion of the examination.
• Study in all different settings: Alone at home. At a friend’s place. With a few people at the local library. It helps to break the monotony and you often pick up good tips from other students. Remember though, that the objective is to study. If you are able to study in a small group, this can be a wonderful way of improving your understanding of key concepts in the course. Often the questions you can’t answer will be an area of strength for your friend (and vie-versa). Collaborative learning is a great way of consolidating your understanding. If you are the one explaining something to a friend, this will also help you as it allows you to demonstrate your understanding, and in the process you will be encouraged.
•Do the revision sets: Do the revision sets at the back of each chapter in your text book (or other text books you may have at home – or go to your local library and borrow one). There are many different texts available. Do not worry if you have done the sets before. Chances are it was quite a while ago so these will be worthwhile completing. It allows you to refine your knowledge of each topic. It may also alert you to concepts you forgot to include in your summary.
•Do school Trial papers: Most schools will provide you with school trial papers from other schools. If not, ask your teacher. They will usually be able to provide you with these along with the associated solutions. You could also ask friends from other schools to swap papers with you (i.e. your trial exam) and then you will have more resources to use.
• Don’t be overwhelmed: Don’t be overwhelmed by the amount of work ahead of you. All projects, no matter how complex, may be broken down into simple parts. Keep in mind also, that thousands of students have tread this path before you, and survived!
