I became a Tutornova Mentor because…

I find it extremely rewarding helping students reach their potential and achieve both their academic and personal goals.

 

One piece of advice for students with big dreams is….

Don’t let others steer you away from your dream. It may be a more difficult and obscure road to get there, but it’ll happen if you are truly passionate about it and put in the effort to make it come true.

 

My biggest challenge in Year 12 was…

Finding the motivation to study every day.

 

I overcame this challenge by…

Making sure I had extra-curricular activities and time set aside to spend time with friends so it didn’t seem like all I did was study.

 

I’d describe my teaching style as…

Approachable – I see myself as someone that you can feel comfortable asking questions, no matter how big or small. I am also attentive and patient, and will make sure you truly understand a concept before moving on.

 

If I could go back in time to when I was in high school I would tell myself…

While Year 12 is extremely important, you should make sure not to put too much pressure on yourself. You can work hard but still enjoy life at the same time – don’t just focus on studying 24/7.

 

I keep motivated through hard times by…

Thinking about the future. While it may be hard now, it’ll be worth it to reach that end goal.

 

My philosophy is…

Follow your passions. Don’t just choose a path because it’ll be easier or because other people tell you to.

 

My favourite productivity tool or app is…(and why)

Google Drive as it’s great to store all my documents and share with others.

 

When I’m not teaching, I’m usually…

Conducting research for my PhD – but to wind down I’m usually wrapped up in a good book or watching Netflix.
