Experienced VCE Math/Science Tutor

I am a friendly, down to earth person who really wants to make a difference in the quality of education. I am 100% devoted to all the students that I teach and really want them to achieve their academic dreams! I do not only teach my students but we develop strong rapport, which ensures that students feel comfortable asking me questions, in a judgement free environment. I have a vast amount of interests these including traveling, philosophy, psychology, reading, writing, teaching, as well as personal development. I am very curious about how things work and integrate this into my teaching style - to ensure that students see the bigger picture.

Within private sessions, we progress through the entire curriculum with a close focus on question answering techniques. This enables students to understand how to convert their knowledge of their topic, and translate it into practical use. Quite often, a student knows the theory, but cannot connect how it needs to be used when answering a question! This is very frustrating for many students, because the practical side of their studies are not developed well.

Izabella's Mini CV

  • Qualifications
  • Strengths as a Tutor
  • Teaching Method

Highest Qualification: Bachelor's Degree (Advanced Qualification)

I have completed the following qualifications

- Bachelor of Biomedical Science (Monash University) 2005-2007

- Bachelor of Chemical Engineering (Monash University) 2008 - 2013

- Graduate Diploma of Secondary Education (ACU) 2015 - 2016

More importantly I have worked with countless amount of VCE students consistently throughout 13 years of teaching experience.

Students feel that I help make challenging topics/question simpler to understand. I believe that \\\"keeping it simple\\\" is important when teaching and learning. Of course this does not mean that the detail is omitted - important detail is still incorporated to teaching by scaffolding content, which assists the student to understand the bigger picture. I am quite a creative and patient person and if a student is struggling with understanding a topic, we find a different approach.

Progression through the syllabus with a focus on extended response questions. I concentrate on helping the student develop confidence in answering questions. I prepare students for their SACs and exams by leading them through highly relevant and challenging questions that could confuse them in a test situation.

Online tutoring is also possible at a reduced fee.

Izabella's Social Profile



I enjoy writing articles to motivate students and help them increase their confidence. Being at school is a challenge, especially during the VCE/HSC years, and it is important to focus on stress reduction, time management, motivation and goal setting throughout the year!
