Hello everyone, I know this may sound really stupid but I have a friend who goes to Matrix and she complained that her Physics teacher was not that good (I'm not sure about that because I think all teachers have to be qualified in order to teach, maybe?). I was wondering if there are any other tutors (currently 2020) who are exceptionally good except DJ? Greatly appreciate your opinions!!!!

I dont like DJ, but that's just my personal preference. 2 wonderful teachers I can recommend for physics is Emma Lindley and Thomas Dixon.

Anant, DJ, Alex and Emma are very good, especially DJ. For DJ, he will make sure you do your work. For the others, they are chill but good teachers but you have to be willing to learn. In my experience, strict teachers at school and tutoring centres will always be the better teachers.

I've been in Dj's class twice, and he never checks hw despite always saying he would at the intial start of lessons lol. We barely finished mod 5 content, and we didnt even complete mod 8. He likes to go offtrack quite occasionally, costing us time for theory. I've also noticed he likes to exaggerate difficuilty of certain aspects of theory like binding energy lol. We spent a full 45 mins going through like 3-4 pages one time. Though an upside are his anecdotal stories that at times can be quite entertaining and refresh attention span.

I do also agree that strict teachers are great, however dj is not strict. Tbh I was quite disapointed.
Thank you so much for everyone's reply, appreciate it!!!! Salad Man, I recently enrolled to Matrix Physics and I waitlisted in DJ's class on Wed. My Thursday class clashes with one of my subject at school, and when I contacted them, I got told to move back to Hurstville campus (as all the spots are full 😰). By any chance, do you think any student will change classes, or even give up one of their Physics class once the next term starts??? I am very distressed right now, and I have harassed the staff with a bunch of emails and phone calls (maybe they might block me too 😭). Any alternate solutions to my issue???

Were you by chance in the saturday class?
I have other classes on Sat and I can only do Physics (1:30pm - 4:30pm) or (4:40pm - 7:40pm) (only if I get to switch Chem class to the 1:30pm class, and it's already full o_O)

I don't know about this year but I think more students are going to Matrix (because all Chem classes at Strathfield campus are full)

It's definitely not the end of the world if you don't get DJ as your Wednesday teacher - it is up to you to actually do the work. Maybe consider holiday course after the term if your teacher isn't great. I know Anant is working the Strathfield holiday course and he is great.

I think term classes in the afternoons of a school day is a much better environment where you are ready to listen, and your classmates will actually talk. I remember DJ talked a lot of shit on his Saturday class cause they were so unenthuastic lol

I asked to join any of Anant's Physics classes and they said they were all full though...(sad). I also asked them to arrange all of my classes to suit the time table and they said I have to be on waitlist until next term (but highly likely that none of the students will ever give up their currently enrolled classes)

Dj is pretty popular, but i reckon since u got waitlisted pretty early you got a fair chance. I got waitlisted last term and got in cause a group of kids just transferred to another class. Theres always a group of kids that transfers in the 2nd lesson from what I've noticed from having been in Dj's class twice.
