Approach to Tutoring:

Rhys focuses on enabling students to achieve beyond their own academic expectations. He aims to create a personalised learning experience, fostering an enriching and engaging environment by catering to the needs of the student and their learning process.

His tutoring approach is built around the needs of the student, however, it remains fixed on helping them to achieve academic excellence. Rhys does this by finding the strengths and weaknesses of his students, using his observations to structure lessons in order to enrich pre-existing talent, while also addressing problem areas.

Furthermore, Rhys prepares thoroughly for each lesson, preparing detailed feedback and a clear plan for the student to achieve beyond their academic goals. His passion for teaching and learning offers students a clear and enthusiastic lesson to get the most out of their time.

Biography:

Rhys grew up in the Upper North Shore of Sydney attending Barker College in Hornsby from Year 5 until his graduation as Dux Proxime in Year 12. In High School, Rhys involved himself in all aspects of school life, representing the Mock Trial Team as a closing barrister, the Debating team as Firsts Captain and the Volleyball Firsts team.

To complement his interest in debating and oratory, Rhys has possessed a lifelong passion for Mathematics and Science. Inspired by work experience with CSIRO in 2019, Rhys has decided to pursue further study of Physics and Pure Mathematics at University. Rhys is currently enrolled as a Dalyell Scholar in a combined Science and Mathematics degree, where he plans to study for the next four years.

In addition to tutoring, Rhys is planning on debating at the University of Sydney, while also coaching debating at his alma mater. He also enjoys playing basketball and volleyball as social sports, as well as reading postmodern fiction (he is currently reading Gravity's Rainbow).
