    Media 50

    Hi I’m Jordan! I graduated in 2019 from Box Hill High School and I’m currently studying Film and TV at Swinburne University of Technology under their Vice Chancellors Scholarship program. I work part time as a freelance filmmaker and photographer, working on smaller music videos and corporate work as well as crewing on larger sets. I am also a musical artist with four self-produced and recorded songs currently on Spotify. I have had the opportunity to share my industry and academic knowledge with peers and fellow students, especially during VCE. This makes me a great tutor as I can break down seemingly difficult concepts into something that can be understood by just about anyone.

    Hi, I'm Jack! I am a current student at Monash University, studying a double degree in Engineering and Science. I am an experienced tutor over a range of subjects with specialties in Chemistry, English and Physical Education. I have tutored for companies, schools, and privately and have developed, what I think is, an effective balance between interactive learning and a direct teaching approach. Outside of academia, my main hobby is to run competitively. I think it is an essential component of the school/life balance, that students are able to enjoy themselves and pursue areas of life that are not necessarily prevalent in the classroom. I hope that I can help to provide a well-rounded education for you!

Outside of studies I enjoy rock climbing, futsal and playing the guitar and French horn. In 2021, I am looking to work with only a small number of students, so I can deliver very productive, committed and personalised 1 on 1 or small group sessions. English is definitely the subject I am most passionate about. The texts I studied were Pride and Prejudice, Stasiland and Never Let Me Go, Wordsworth Poems, and, The Queen and Ransom, but I am eager to study other texts in order to cater to the needs of students. I also achieved a 39 in Chemistry, 37 in Specialist Maths and 91st percentile in the UCAT, so I can assist in these areas too.
