Tian Chi currently works at Lore Tuition's Springvale Campus. He tutors a wide range of science subjects for senior students.
It has been almost a year since I joined Lore Tuition Springvale as a tutor and I must say it has been a very enjoyable and rewarding journey so far. Much has changed at the Springvale campus over the past year: new students, new parents, new tutors and a new location. However, through these volatile times, the crux of Lore Tuition has persisted unchanged: a dedicated team of staff, the pride and anxiety of parents and, of course, the undying yet fragile enthusiasm of students in the face of the adversity that is Maths. Personally, the most motivating aspect of being a tutor at Lore Tuition is the emphasis on the individual student and this is the exact approach I take towards every class that I teach. Unbeknownst to the students and parents are the numerous discussions we have about how we can help individual students achieve their maximum potential in the short time frame we have with them every week. Importantly, we realise that every student as well as every parent is unique and have different sets of circumstances and therefore we try our best to accommodate for these important variables so we can give them the best possible advice to achieve their goals.
Outside of Lore Tuition, I’m currently studying at university to hopefully become a paramedic one day with Ambulance Victoria. This has been a childhood dream of mine, probably ever since the first time I heard that intense siren and saw those flashy blue lights on top of what can only be described as a beast of a truck. Over time, I discovered the satisfying feeling of helping people in need as well as a deep interest in the health sciences. I decided that if I did not pursue a career in health care I would probably regret it for the rest of my life. As with all journeys, however, there were challenges along the way and times when nothing seemed to motivate me at all, but that’s a story for another time. The important lesson that I’ve learnt and continue to learn is that youth is all about trying and persevering to discover and practise what you truly enjoy to do. From the many parents I’ve met at Lore Tuition, I’ve learnt that one of the thing that matters most to them is that their child tries and perseveres to the best of their ability so that they can find a goal that they truly have a passion and purpose to work toward. Whether that be fighting the injustices of the world as a lawyer or earning the big bucks as a CEO, the possibilities are endless and I truly feel honoured to be a part of that journey.
