Bio

I am a young man who is passionate, driven and self-motivated. My dream is to become a qualified Actuary. I am currently an Actuarial Consultant with management experience. I'm a man on a mission.

I believe I am a good tutor because I have an overwhelming desire to discuss and help others with academic problems within my realm. In addition, I am articulate and well-spoken with experience in public speaking. Based on my years of experience Tutoring for Teach Me 2, I believe tutoring is not about gross dictation but rather about catering to each student's needs and level of understanding.
