Praveena Raviraj

I am a bubbly, approachable person who loves meeting new people! I really enjoy mentoring and teaching students of all ages because I think it's a great way to share my knowledge with others. I'm currently in university but when I'm not studying I enjoy playing sport, music and travelling!

My background and experience

I completed my HSC at Baulkham Hills High School in 2018, achieving an ATAR of 99.80. I took Chemistry, Physics, English, Extension 1 &2 Maths and Accelerated Economics, but out of all subjects, Maths was always my strongest and I believe my high marks were influenced by my excellent maths teacher at school. I learnt a lot about teaching styles from this teacher which I then applied in my previous tutoring job at ACE Specialist HSC in Sydney, where I tutored Chemistry and wrote Economics course material. Taking both Preliminary and HSC classes, I adjusted my teaching style to the types of students and the class sizes, so I developed one-on-one teaching styles too (not just for a large class). I worked with students with different abilities which challenged me and pushed me to develop new teaching skills.

My approach to teaching

Before any session starts, I ask my students what they are currently doing at school and if they have any questions from previous weeks or even general questions. This gives me a good understanding of where to start and also if there is anything I need to add to the lesson plan. I generally like to explain the concepts first, give some examples then let the students attempt a few questions and work through them together afterwards if they are struggling. I believe it's very important not to spoon-feed the student, because the student really needs to get a good understanding of the concepts themselves to be able to tackle difficult questions in exams. At the end of a lesson I would give out harder questions that the students can use to challenge themselves and revise the content they just learnt. I like to keep my sessions fun and interactive but also ensure that students really get something meaningful out of each session.
