Ella Berglas, STEM Tutor
Advanced Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Cello; New
Farm Brisbane, Years 7 - 12
Hello! My name is Ella. I am an Engineering student at the University
of Queensland. I have a deep knowledge of the subject matter, but
more importantly, I am very aware of what is required to study them effectively. I provide individual
one-on-one tutoring that can be an important compliment to traditional
I believe the key to success with these subjects is to develop a deep
understanding of the underlying concepts and practice, practice,
practice. Understanding comes from clear explanations of the sometimes difficult concepts that a student may be
struggling with. I achieve this with a structured step-by-step approach.
I start by working with the student to identify the areas that trouble
them. For example, it is difficult to understand calculus if a student
is struggling with basic algebra. I then focus on those areas that are targeted to the needs of the individual.
Learning should also be fun. It is very rewarding to master a difficult
concept and be able to confidently apply it to solve problems.
Success produces the confidence to learn more without anxiety. The journey is completed one step at a time.
It is not long ago that I was a high school student struggling to
achieve my academic goals. I find it very rewarding to now help other
students be successful in their endeavours.
I can provide lessons in person at New Farm or online. Online lessons
work very well when the student has a stylus and we can use electronic
white boards. The stylus can be used with a touch screen on
a laptop or tablet. Alternatively, a graphic drawing tablet
such those from Huion or Wacom can be purchased for under $100 (there
is no need for it to have a display).
I have created the following videos that demonstrate my teaching style.
