I am an enthusiastic learner and was top achiever in high school for 3 years. I love chess, classical music and Karate (brown belt).

I have more than 6 years experience as an academic tutor and my students ranged from Grade 3 primary school to even adults. The experience allows me to understand better the crux of my students' struggle and enables me to communicate with all age group learners. I have 2 years of involvement in University Teaching Assistant also familiarised me with the marking standard.
