About Your Tutor

Hi! I'm Rhys.

You might not recognise me, but you may have read one of my books. I have written more than twenty science textbooks including the SASTA Stage 1 and 2 Biology, Chemistry, and Physics Workbooks in South Australia. With over a decade of teaching experience in South Australian Public Schools, I am proud to have successfully educated thousands of students and reached tens of thousands with my published works.

I love the challenge of educating young people and stimulating their interest in the sciences. I became an educator because I wanted to share my knowledge, understanding and fascination with the complex and wonderful world around us. I believe education should be accessible to everyone, regardless of their circumstances.

I founded Online Science Tutoring to provide very high quality, personalised science tutoring services that cover the year 8 to 10 Australian Curriculum and the 11 and 12 science curricula in SA, NT, VIC, NSW and QLD. I believe that every student is capable of achieving great things. My mission is to help students realise their potential and pave a path to a bright and exciting future.

What students and parents
say about my tutoring

Dear Mr Lewis,

Thank you so much for your company these three years; it has been a great pleasure for me to be your student. I am not exaggerating to say that I fell in love with the subjects of physics and chemistry because of you. Your classes are always interesting and full of enthusiasm, which inspires me with passion and desire to explore physics and chemistry. Whenever I asked you a question, you always answered me very gently and patiently. You also encouraged me a lot which made me feel valued. Therefore I am very touched by your support and concern. Time goes by so fast; I really can’t bear to say goodbye. In my future study life, I will continue to work hard and make you proud. You are my favourite teacher, and I will always remember you!

Dear Mr Lewis,

Thank you for all your help throughout this year. You went above and beyond your duty as a teacher to help me achieve my best, and I truly appreciate it.

From the first lessons I had with you in year 11 (where I vividly remember you throwing water across the bench and slamming lab coats onto the floor in chemistry), I immediately knew there was something different about the way you teach in comparison to all the other teachers. Now, two years later, my first thought was proven to be undoubtedly correct.

You’re an incredible teacher, and I really hope you see that. You have an exceptional ability to engage all your students in learning, as well as being a good person to speak to on a friendlier note. I honestly couldn’t have achieved what I have without your help!

The first thing I find most valuable however, is that not only did you help me achieve what I have academically, but you inspired me to want to do my best and never stop learning, thinking and understanding. You taught me to appreciate knowledge and inspired such a passion for science in me, and for that, I cannot thank you enough.

I think the following quote sums up what I’m trying to say quite well, “You can teach a student a lesson for a day, but if you can teach him to learn by creating curiosity, he will continue the learning process as long as he lives.”

You’re an incredible teacher, and I really hope you see that. You have an exceptional ability to engage all your students in learning
