Hi! My name is Matt Martin, and I am currently studying the Bachelor of Biomedicine at the University of Melbourne. At the University of Melbourne I have been a Peer Mentor, and in that role I supported first-year students in their transition to university life. Previously I was in a role at Xavier College where I provided academic support and guidance as a tutor for Years 9-12.
I graduated from Xavier College with a 98.3 ATAR in 2018. I achieved an award for Academic Excellence in VCE and a class prize in Economics in Year 12, and in Year 11 I achieved an Academic Excellence award as well as class prizes in English, History (Revolutions), Mathematical Methods, and Economics.
I've been privileged enough to know some great tutors. They encouraged me to strive for the best marks possible, but also fostered in me a desire to learn and gave me the skills I needed to be a better student. As a tutor, I hope to be able to provide an individualised experience for each student and provide them with the support they need to achieve their academic goals.
Outside of my academic life I enjoy playing soccer and basketball, listening to music, and doing newspaper puzzles!
