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 Australia wide and possibly beyond. 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 I develop excellent rapport with them, this ensures that they are not petrified of asking me questions and always feel like they can approach me with any type of problem they may have. I have a vast amount of interests these including traveling, philosophy, psychology, reading, writing, teaching, business 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, I progress through the entire curriculum with the student 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 can\'t 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.

In addition to this I have a passion about teaching students to build self-confidence, a healthy self-image, their ability to tap into self-motivation which are skills that are important for a lifetime! These factors determine the level of educational success obtained by individuals and therefore I find it absolutely imperative to integrate it into the tutoring sessions.

Izabella's Mini CV

  • Qualifications
  • Strengths as a Tutor
  • Teaching Method

Highest Qualification: Bachelor's Degree (Advanced Qualification)

I am a graduate chemical engineer from Monash University.

- 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 12 years of teaching experience.

Students feel as though I make challenging topics and question quite simple to understand. I believe that \"keeping it simple\" is very important when teaching a student. Of course this does not mean that the detail is omitted - I incorporate the detail into teaching by adding it in layers. Therefore allowing the student to understand the bigger picture. I am quite a creative and patient person. If a student is struggling with understanding a topic, I choose a different way of explaining content.

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 SAC\'s 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!
