Personal Description:

I am a biochemistry PhD student at the university of Toronto. Before though, I lived/studied in Germany (Leipzig) for over two years. Since I spend a lot of time with math, chemistry, biology, etc. at school, in my free time I enjoy watching/playing basketball, being outside, watching documentary films, or looking at art, and traveling when time and money allow

Tutoring Experience:

Since my second year of undergraduate I have tutored consistently in mostly math and english, sometimes in person but more often through online video-tutoring.

Tutoring Approach:

I seek to understand how you or your child think and how this relates to learning a given topic, and then teach it in that way.
For example, thinking in terms of something we are familiar with, such as an analogy between forming a chemical bonds and interpersonal relationships, can make a subject tangible and understandable . Also, some students want to just know how to get an answer, while others must know the theory/why behind a given topic. Both result in the correct answer, but the student must understand a topic in his or her own way in order for it to click and be 'learned'.

I also seek to develop methods (ideally designed by the student) to break down a difficult subject and teach themselves. I was told and guilty of it as well, but the biggest mistake students make is to not take advantage of the resources available to them. So, I teach basics related to any subject and then show what resources one has at one's disposal.
