Book Desmond

I am currently undertaking my final year of the Doctor of Medicine at The University of Melbourne. In my VCE year at Xavier College, I scored 50 for English with subsequent Premier’s Award for that subject. I have over 6 years of tutoring experience with VCE students in individualised English tuition services. Many of my students have scored very well; last year one of my students scored 41, a remarkable achievement for her. I also provide teaching and preparation for IELTS and PTE. My timetable is very flexible due to my residence in the CBD area, and I can offer a range of lesson times, including online tuition via Skype.

My interests include politics and public health, in-line with my medical background. For recreation, I enjoy badminton and maintaining my fitness and the gym. I also regularly play the piano, seeking to add the masterpieces of Yiruma and Studio Ghibli to my repertoire.
