EducationI am currently studying B Medical Studies/Doctor of Medicine at the University of New South Wales. This year I am doing an Honours research project with St George Hospital investigating a novel drug regime to treat pancreatic cancer.
ExperienceTutoring experience: 7 years (3 years of primary student tutoring and 4 years IB tutoring)
Number of students tutored: 150
Current degree: BSc(Med)Hons, BMed, MD at UNSW
I am currently a 5th year medical student at UNSW and an International Baccalaureate tutor for Year 11 and 12 students. As a former student from MLC, I’ve tutored an extensive number of students in a variety of subjects as outlined below for the past 4 years. This has been in addition to my previous tutoring for primary school students, my employment as a tutor for UNSW medicine, James An college and Cross-Age Peer tutoring. In addition to my extensive tutoring experience, I have achieved excellent scores in all the subjects I have taken, which I have outlined below.
Higher Level Biology - 7
Higher Level Chemistry - 7
Higher Level Economics - 7
Standard Level Mathematics - 7
Standard Level English - 7
Standard Level Latin - 7
During my tutoring lessons I make sure that the student has a good understanding of the concept and then solidify that understanding with numerous past paper type questions. I believe that as long as the tutor ensures the student understands the content and he/she practices applying that knowledge to questions, every student is capable of achieving a 7. I also guide the students in their internal assessments, and I am available to answer any of their questions outside of the tutoring time as well.
HobbiesI am interested in health policy and advocacy, thus I have been involved with the NSW student's medical council, AMSA and UNSW Medical society. In terms of my career goals, I have a strong aspiration to become an Academic Clinician in the field of Surgery, and as such I am involved in both laboratory and clinical projects alongside clinical learning. I consider myself a highly motivated and hardworking individual and other attributes that I am proud of are, strong communication skills, teamwork, attention to detail and a passion for both teaching and learning.

Hyerim is a very kind, helpful and experienced tutor as she always makes sure that she explains the concept so that I am able to understand it. Since she is very familiar with the syllabus, she makes sure that we cover everything that we need in a very efficient manner. Even though I have only gone tutoring for a short period of time, she was able to teach me everything in the chemistry syllabus within the small timeframe. Having Hyerim as my tutor helped me improve substantially in chemistry and I would definitely recommend her to anyone taking the IB.
