GAMSAT Section III (ACER)

Location/s: The University of Melbourne, Parkville campus, Inner city suburbs of Melbourne

Additional Information: I have been working as a private tutor since 1997 and provide one-to-one and group tutoring. I am a part-time teaching associate at The University of Melbourne at present, and a member of Australian Education Union (AEU) & Independent Education Union (IEU). After having obtained my Ph. D. degree in molecular biology at the University of Adelaide in 2002, I had worked as a postdoctoral research fellow for more than 6 years at CSIRO and the University of Melbourne respectively.

I am familiar with the present VCE study designs (2013 -2016) and IB Diploma Programme curricula for maths, physics, chemistry or biology. Quite a few students studying with me for a period of time got A+ in their End-of-year exams. One of my VCE students was offered a place for pursuing Bachelor of Medicine/Bachelor of Surgery (MBBS). The student's final ATAR is 99.55.

My expertise in biological research gives me many advantages to develop effective strategies to solve UMAT questions, especially in logical reasoning & problem Solving, and non-verbal reasoning. Students find my strategies very effective. One of my UMAT students got an average percentile of 99% in UMAT.

Being up to date with GAMSAT since 2007, I am familiar with the topics and theories frequently tested in Section III. I have summarised theories and concepts needed for section III and complied and classified the questions tested in previous years. My GAMSAT clients have achieved satisfactory scores in Section III after working with me for a period of time. One client has been offered a place to pursue MBBS at the University of Sydney in 2013, another got into Deakin.

I also have experience in teaching English as a Second Language (ESL), Mandarin, and helping preparation for standard exams, such as Edutest, SAT I, SAT II Maths, SAT II Biology, SAT II Physics, SAT II Chemistry, and GRE.

My hourly rate is $80 for one-to-one tutoring, $60/person for the group of two, $50/person for the group of three or more.

Thank you so much for your interest in my service. Meeting your needs is one of my highest priorities. If you need more information, please feel free to email me text me or visit www.bhgtutoring.com.au
