Greg achieved the next highest ATAR in 2017, of 99.4 and received a Merit for Chemistry.
He did Stage 2 Chemistry, Physics, Specialist Maths and English Literary Studies in 2017.
“I would love to be a part of tutoring at St John’s as it is a great opportunity to stay connected with the school, and I enjoy helping people with their work. I often help my sister with her Maths revision. Tutoring would also give me a good reason to practice and remember the high school course material, which would be beneficial for my University studies. I would love to help tutor after school.”
Greg is currently studying a Bachelor of Medical Science combined with a Bachelor of Engineering (Biomedical) at Flinders University.
Amelia achieved an ATAR of 98.70, the fourth highest in the Class of 2017.
She studied Stage 2 Maths Methods, Specialist Maths, Chemistry, Physics and English Literary Studies in 2017.
“I would love to be a tutor because I understand as a student it can be frustrating to get stuck on the first question of homework or not know where to begin an assignment. I think this tutor program is a great incentive for students to actively seek help and stay motivated and on top of all their work! I also went to a lot of maths and science helps at St John’s and found them very beneficial, and would like to be able to help students achieve their best.”
Amelia is currently studying Advanced Mathematical Science.
