Bio

I'm an experienced teacher with an extensive understanding of positive psychology and learning theory. I love learning, and I'm passionate about empowering students through fun and adaptable teaching.

Apart from my love of learning, one of my top strengths is perspective. I'm highly adept at seeing problems from the student's point of view and use that skill to help them get over learning hurdles in a way that feels natural and intuitive instead of forced. I'm also keenly aware that a positive student-teacher connection improves learning outcomes and work to maintain one at all times.

Subjects

  • School Tutoring

Mathematics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

My experience in various teaching positions has allowed me to harness my skills in positive psychology and using learning theory for different learning styles. I understand that maths doesn't come naturally to everyone and I'm enthusiastic about making learning fun, relatable and stress-free.

Physics

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I'm fascinated by the way Physics explains how the world works and I believe that it's much easier to learn when made fun. I use my understanding of learning styles to tailor my teaching to fit each student's specific needs.

Physical Science

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I'm fascinated by the way Physics explains how the world works and I believe that it's much easier to learn when made fun. I use my understanding of learning styles to tailor my teaching to fit each student's specific needs.

Chemistry

Grade 1 - Grade 12

I understand that some students struggle to engage with Chemistry because they can't relate to it and find it boring. I encourage students to find applications of Chemistry in their everyday lives to make it fun to learn about.

AP Maths

Grade 1 - Grade 12

There's a lot of content to cover in AP Maths and it often feels like there's not enough time. Apart from using my expertise to make learning easier, I also teach students techniques to improve results in tests and exams.
