About Me

Hi! I’m Oakley, and I’m a student at The University of Melbourne, currently undertaking a Graduate Diploma of Plant Science (with a previous major in Zoology, and plans to continue with a research Masters in animal behaviour or plant-animal interactions). When I’m not studying or tutoring, you’re most likely to find me out birdwatching on a sandy shore or beneath the tree ferns of Sherbrooke Forest. I’m also very partial to a sneaky game of Mario Kart. I’ve been tutoring on-and-off since 2012, and in the last one-two years have tutored higher-level biology classes, most notably with the UMSU VCE Summer School and at Medley Hall, one of Melbourne Uni’s residential colleges. I love the rewarding feeling that comes with the moment when a student grasps a concept during a tutorial – one of my most precious moments was when my student, who’d never taken a biology class before university, recited the entire process of cellular respiration back to me without a pause. As a flexible and committed individual with a real passion for life sciences, and knowing all too well the perils of having a dreadful teacher, I hope I can bring something to the table for each and every person 🙂
