Message from Ming Lian

Hey there,

I'm Ming and I'm on a mission to help you unlock your full potential and achieve massive success in life and academics.

đŸ’Ș Who Am I?
I'm not your typical math tutor. I'm a mathematician, a scholar, and a relentless advocate for your success. My journey from a struggling student in Year 9 to topping the state in Year 12 has equipped me with the knowledge, passion, and strategies to help you conquer mathematics.

🌟 About Me:
In 2014, I topped the state with raw scores of 48 in VCE Maths Methods and a perfect 50 in VCE Specialist Maths.

At the University of Melbourne, I studied Actuarial Studies and Mathematics. I've helped many VCE students taking Melbourne University Extension Mathematics so I'm here to guide you through the advanced stuff too!

For the past 9 years, I've worked with Cambridge University Press, proofreading and consulting with authors on the latest textbooks you use. You'll see me in their online videos for the latest Year 7 - 10 EMAC textbooks, all the VCE Maths texts, Cambridge Checkpoints, and Cambridge VCE Chemistry. I've worked on hundreds of publications to date, including HSC (NSW), QACE (QLD), SACE (SA) and WACE (WA).

I've worked closely with authors / VCE assessors which includes dealing with pre-publication material that is not released to the public and unique exam insights. So I know exactly what is required from a student and insider perspective that your typical tutor or school teacher do not know.

I've shared my expertise with other educational and EdTech companies, including Edrolo, for which I partially authored material in their General Mathematics book. For Texas Instruments, I was invited to present lectures to teachers (at their TI Learn-Energise-Connect T3 events) on how to use the CAS calculator from an expert perspective!

With 9 years of tutoring experience, I've helped countless students not only achieve scores of 40+ but also a number of perfect raw 50's and 99.95 ATARs. I've placed the results of 2022 at the bottom of the page and also screenshots from some past students too.

Whilst I've personally had success in several subjects at high school and univerisity level including Biology, Chemistry and Physics, I only tutor Mathematics as I am most passionate about it and believe that my best work comes from focus on a single field.
Believe it or not, I once struggled with maths too, barely passing in Year 9 and 10 through a lack of application and bad study technique. I've worked hard to overcome that and that fuels my determination to guide you through the journey of transformation—from doubt to dominance.

🔑 My Commitment:
I believe that mathematical success is within everyone's grasp. My commitment is to be your mentor, your motivator, and your unwavering support on your high school journey. I'm here to guide you, challenge you, and help you unlock your full potential. All I ask in return is that you work your hardest and stay focused.

Let's learn and conquer together.

See you soon,

Ming Lian

Comprehensive Year-Round Tutoring

8-Week Head Start: Begin the academic year with an advantage. Our intensive 8-week program during the summer holidays (November to January) ensures students are introduced to core concepts well before school commences.

Term-Specific Modules: Each term's curriculum is meticulously designed. From January to April (Term 1), we cover crucial course content, ensuring students are well-prepared for their first SAC in May. By July (end of Term 2), we complete the remainder of the course, and from July to September (Term 3), we shift our focus to rigorous revision and exam techniques.

Comprehensive Revision: We believe in staying ahead. By mid-year, our students finish the entire course, granting them valuable months for self-study and revision before the November exams.
