Math and natural sciences enthusiast who delivers boundless knowledge and friendly vibes.

Methodology

My teaching method can vary, depending on what the students' needs and styles are. In the past, I have taught students through old school lectures, where I illustrate problems to be solved on the board and follow along the solutions with the students. However, I have also carried out a hybrid of teaching styles where I provide lecture, as well as bringing in useful graphic softwares that could aid me in illustrating my points and difficult concepts. Each students have different teaching methods they might prefer, which can be tailored to their needs in the case of one on one classes.

Background

Provided both group and one on one private classes at private high school abroad. Expertise in the field of math and sciences, and assisted students who struggled in class, as well as those who were advanced, but wanted to take their knowledge to the next level. Experience in preparing students for IGCSE/IB and other major high school exams. Last but not the least, I also teach students who want to prepare themselves for TOEFL exam (personally achieved a score of 105 in TOEFL iBT)
