Hi, my name is Kristian Zajec-Tingle and I am currently in my third year at the University of Wollongong. I am studying a Bachelor of Environmental Science (Honours) Majoring in Environmental Chemistry. Environmental science encompasses all major sciences which has enabled me to obtain an extensive knowledge in Earth Sciences, Chemistry, Biology and Geography. During my HSC year (graduated 2016) I completed these subjects (excluding Earth science) in which I obtained an average mark of 80% (Band 5). This can be likened to my present marks at university where I am averaging 81% (Distinction). I have loved science ever since early high school and following that I have acquired a passion for expressing my knowledge of the vast branching forum. Past experiences including volunteer work and informal tutoring have moulded my approach to teaching/explaining concepts and ideas This includes analysing a students’ strengths and weaknesses; adapting my resources accordingly, and finally, implementing an effective strategy that most effectively assists the learning process of the student.
