I will always remember my general school Physics teacher as she really opened my eyes and instilled a real passion for science in me. She showed me the best way to teach a subject is to guide the student to re-discover it for themselves with cleverly posed questions and hints.
I believe my role as a tutor is to guide and motivate students to pursue their learning goals, by building their interest for the subject and revealing its more exciting aspects. Depending on the student's learning style, I will customise the lesson to be experimental or theoretical in order to smooth the learning curve and help students achieve their potential.
I enjoy seeing students gain confidence in their abilities as they experience the feeling of achievement that comes with discovering the solution to a problem that seemed unsurmountable just a few hours ago.
