Mr Shanaka Jayakody


Melbourne tutor in UMAT

(21 student reviews)

100th%ile scorer, The most experienced and skilled private UMAT tutor in Melbourne, having tutored 300+ students with over 3000 hours of direct tutoring experience.

Hello all UMAT enthusiasts! My name is Shanaka and I sat the UMAT in 2011, receiving a score of 100%ile, gaining me entry into 4 different medical schools around Australia.

I have tutored over 300 students in the UMAT over the last five years, and have had great success with the students i have taught. Numerous students of mine have matched my own achievement of 100th%ile, and most importantly, many of my students performed well enough to be enrolled in medical degrees across Australia currently.

I have also been actively involved with 2 major UMAT companies in Australia and have both tutored and devised questions for them.

Whilst my qualifications are extensive, and my results speak for themselves, i believe that being a great tutor is about more than just qualifications. I am a committed and dedicated tutor who strives to get the most from my students.

Please refer to my student reviews (at the top of this page) to see how past students have found my classes.

There are two class types that are available:

Live, interactive small group classes:

Group classes of upto 8 students. Highly engaging and stimulating and provide for a collaborative learning approach. These classes follow a very structured approach which prepare and prime students for the exam in July. I will provide my own content, video summaries and practice exams for students attending these sessions

Classes run weekly for 90mins and the cost is $50/student/week.

Online classes:

These classes are 1 on 1 and, will run online over a learning platform including shared whiteboard access and online content. This service is currently limited to just 15 students and students living outside of melbourne will be given priority.
I will provide my own content, video summaries and practice exams for students attending these sessions

Classes run weekly for 60mins, and the cost is $60/class. (Enquire for small online groups at discounted rates)

My methods, and approaches have proven to be highly successful, and i have great confidence in them. However, i don't believe there is a "one approach suits all" and if a student finds that my approach is not for them after attending 1-3 classes, i will gladly refund fees with no questions asked, as well as refer them to other tutors/preparation options.
