 Profile

Hey there!

My name is Victor Lin and I graduated from Melbourne Grammar School in 2013 with a perfect ATAR of 99.95. I am currently a second year student studying the Doctor of Medicine at the University of Melbourne, having completed a Bachelor of Biomedicine as a Chancellor's Scholar at the University of Melbourne in 2016. I have been tutoring Maths Methods (CAS) and Specialist Maths throughout my degree. In 2018, I will again be offering tuition in the subjects of Maths Methods (CAS) and Specialist Maths.

During VCE, I achieved a raw study score of 50 and a Premier's Award in Maths Methods (CAS), a raw study score of 46 in Specialist Maths, and First Class Honours in UMEP Mathematics, with a mark of 99. I also received a number of awards, scholarships, and prizes during my time in high school, including:

• Australian Student Prize (2014), awarded annually by the Department of Education to the top 500 year 12 students in Australia
• Melbourne National Scholarship (2013), awarded annually by the University of Melbourne to year 12 students with tertiary entrance scores of 99.9 or above
• University of Melbourne Extension Program Prize for Academic Excellence in Mathematics (2013), awarded annually by the University of Melbourne to the highest achieving student in Extension Program Mathematics
• Premier’s VCE Award for Mathematical Methods (CAS) (2013), awarded annually by the Department of Education to the top 5 Mathematical Methods (CAS) students in the state of Victoria
• Monash University Prize for Academic Excellence (2012), awarded annually by Monash University to the Year 11 student deemed the most outstanding from an academic perspective

My philosophy is that maths should not so much be learned as discovered. Many of the theorems featured in VCE maths can in fact be proven using results and techniques introduced at the start of high school. As a tutor, my aim will be to build in students an understanding of maths from first principles, so that it becomes clear to them how VCE maths ties in with the mathematical knowledge gained in previous years. Only then will maths become, for students, less of a chore, and more of an adventure, an experience not to be dreaded, but to be savoured. Moreover, I will introduce to students a range of study techniques, which I myself employed, to ensure that they are well-positioned to achieve the highest score they can possibly achieve.

Experience:


• Have tutored year 11 and year 12 students in the subjects of Maths Methods (CAS) and Specialist Mathematics for more than 4 years
• Have had multiple students achieve raw study scores of 45+ and two students achieve ATARs of 99.90+
• Past students include Dux of Melbourne High School (2014), Dux of Melbourne Grammar School (2014), and Dux of Essendon Keilor College (2014)
• Have lectured to over 100 students as the Subject Manager of Maths Methods (CAS) in the 2014 SWOT VCE Revision Program
• Have ran tutorials consisting of around 15 students as a Subject Tutor for Maths Methods (CAS) in 2015 and 2016 VCE Summer School (VCESS)

Qualifications:


• Graduated from Melbourne Grammar School in 2013 with a perfect ATAR of 99.95
• Currently a third year student studying the Bachelor of Biomedicine as a Chancellor’s Scholar at the University of Melbourne, with guaranteed entry into the Doctor of Medicine
• Achieved a raw study score of 50 in Maths Methods (CAS), a raw study score of 46 in Specialist Maths, and a raw mark of 99 in UMEP Maths
• Received a number of awards, scholarships and prizes, including the Australian Student Prize, the Melbourne National Scholarship, the University of Melbourne Extension Program Prize for Academic Excellence, Premier’s VCE Award for Mathematical Methods (CAS) and the Monash University Prize for Academic Excellence
