Meet this week’s Welcome Wednesdays Tutor-Mentor Frank Nguyen. Frank is studying a Bachelor of Science at University of Melbourne.
1. What inspired or interested you about teaching?
My high school teachers inspired me to teach and tutor others. I find that teaching is a great way to give back to the community.
2. How will you connect with your students?
When working with new students, I will connect with them by listening and learning about their hobbies and interests. I hope that this will help them view me as a friend rather than a tutor or another teacher.
3. What subjects will you be teaching and for which grade level?
I will tutor Maths from primary to Year 10, and VCE Further Maths.
4. How do you learn best?
I find that I learn best when I break down difficult problems and concepts into easy-to-understand parts. Practicing rather than watching also helps me learn.
5. Why did you choose TutorBright?
TutorBright appealed to me because I feel that it is a unique tutoring company that has its students’ best interests in mind.
4. Tell us a fun/interesting fact about yourself!
One interesting fact about me is that I play ultimate frisbee!
