My name is Simone and I’m currently a 2nd year medical student at the University of Western Australia. I graduated in 2017 with an ATAR of 99.25.
I have been tutoring for two years with the Bright Tutors, yet having received tutoring during my high school career I am not unaware of what tutoring is all about. Personally, I found tutoring to be a great experience and firmly believe that the extra help I received helped me achieve my goals to be able to study medicine.
Having been in the shoes of a student before, I understand how daunting the concept of tutoring and extra work outside school might be for a student. Thus, my main focus is to make sure that the learning environment always makes the student feel comfortable, and that the lesson structure reflects the means by which the student learns best. I think that the goal with tutoring is not only for each student to understand the work more and feel better equipped in their studies, but for a love for learning to also grow.
