Hello guys, my name is James Wang and I graduated from Fort Street High School in 2007. I graduated also from actuarial studies in UNSW, and I am offering a tutoring service to students in year 11 and year 12 for Mathematics all the way up to 4 unit (extension 2).

In adapting to the COVID-19 situation, I am offering online tutoring now.

A little bit more about myself and my teaching style:

I am a full-time risk analyst with 6 years of banking experience, but I am still enthusiastic about tutoring mathematics, because I realised from the past 11 years of tutoring that I can make a huge difference in my student's results. Under my tuition, my students were not only able to achieve high marks, they were also able to establish an interest in maths and hone the skills in logical thinking.

I detest the traditional methods of how mathematics is taught, generally students were just told to memorise and apply the mathematical formulas to a set of repetitive questions. I stand out in my teaching style in that I am more of a guide than a teacher, I do not spoon feed answers and formulas to students, instead I find that they will learn a lot more once they become an independent and active learner, so I train them through interactive probing and teaching so they can attain the skills to tackle questions on their own, and is able to ultimately solve even the most challenging questions in the HSC.


Experience:

  • I have tutored for 11 years, and I have produced many high quality students.
  • I have tutored for 1000+ hours.
  • Around 90% of my students gain the highest band in mathematics and one of my student is a state ranker, and numerous students are ranked 1 in their school year (Private schools and selective schools).

Qualifications:

  • High Distinction (87) for MATH1251, Mathematics for Actuarial Studies B
  • Distinction (83) for MATH1151 for Mathematics for Actuarial Studies A
  • Weighted Average Mark of 75 (Distinction Average) for Bachelor of Commerce/Economics, majoring in Actuarial Studies, Finance and Econometrics
  • 98/100 for Mathematics Extension 1
  • 96/100 for Mathematics Extension 2

Materials:
  • Fully typed, structured notes each week.
  • Typed up quizes for each week.
  • Typed up revision exercises of HSC style questions for each topic.
  • Typed up Trial papers from selective schools and private schools.
  • Sample notes: (Attached)

Re: Very experienced HSC tutor at Burwood, 98 for 3u, 96 for 4u

James has my recommendation.
I definitely agree that the teaching style doesn't make me feel like i'm rote learning (which in maths shouldn't happen); but i can actually understand the workings behind mathematics and get to the nitty gritty of more challenging questions. With James' assistance I was able to receive high band six for 2u and High E4 for ext. 1 maths in 2010. The quizzes are really helpful, helps me manage my time. defs have to do the homework, otherwise questions you can't do won't be answered! you can ask any school question as well.
He's willing to put in the time to help you with understanding and enjoying maths.

This guy is a genius !

I can not begin to emphasise how great this guy is ! Completing my HSC in 2010, I had never been tutored and so was always worried about who was going to tutor me, and whether he’d do a good job or not. Thankfully I found James.

He is fantastic! He has such a great and profound knowledge of mathematics. He knows all aspects of the Mathematics, MX1 and MX2 HSC course. He also teaches aspects outside the syllabus, which always makes things that touch easier.

He has amazing resources, ranging from notes, to past papers (HSC and Selective schools) as well as weekly quiz’s ! James’ patience and determination to educate mathematics is also another valuable virtue.

I was tutored in both Mathematics Extension 1 and Mathematics Extension 2. Through his help (which I am forever grateful for) I was able to attain a Band 6 in both subjects! James has now become a good friend of mine and it’s safe to say that making James my tutor was one of the best decisions of my HSC.

If you’re someone looking for a tutor whose genius, patient, reliable and humble, than I highly recommend James. It’ll be on of “your” best decisions of the HSC.

Thanks again James, and I’ll see you in uni :D !

Re: Very experienced HSC tutor, 98 for 3u, 96 for 4u

I can strongly recommend this James fellow to anyone who might be interested. I have seen many students who were performing very poorly in Mathematics who, with his help, managed to score high Band 6s and E4s in the several different Mathematics courses offered in the NSW HSC. An Old Boy of High, who I spoke to recently, had these words to say when I inquired as to how he managed to attain an ATAR of 99.95: "James is the best".
As you can see, it is quite clear that this James fellow has excellent credentials, and I strongly urge anyone who is reading this to accept James' offer, before slots run out.

Re: Free Mathematics Extension 2 Tuition, Taught By HSC Marker

I would like to apply, however our mx2 class is much less than 10 and we haven't done our first assessment. Could we submit year 11 3unit ranks? Also what topics will the test cover and what date and how long will the test be?
