Information About Jay
This is how 2 referees rated Jay:
I am glad to introduce my self as Jay . My area of interest is pure science especially to understand the nature. As we know that "knowledge increases by sharing but not by saving" following this quotes I would like to spread my knowledge as much as I can. I am very good at explaining the theories and derivation in context with the day to day life so that students can understand properly.
Currently I am working on building a Phyto-PET detector specifically for Plants at University of Regina with NIDDLE group as well as I am a LAB TA in department of Physics (UofR). I had three years of teaching experience in my home country India. I was also working with national level laboratories in my undergraduate level and awarded for excellent research work on Nano technology.
schools and universities focus on conveying a large amount of information to their students. But for most people that is not enough to create genuine understanding and an ability to answer exam questions. That is why many students, regardless of their ability, seek to get extra help from a private tutor. My aim as a tutor is to create in my students a deep understanding and confidence in answering exam questions and being able to tackle new and unfamiliar problems. My philosophy is based on the idea that learning happens in an environment of mutual respect in which the student is encouraged to think and make new connections for themselves. My experience has been that one-to-one personal tuition has a unique value to students because of the ability to resolve the students’ personal barriers to learning in a way that lays the foundations for a deep and lasting understanding of the subject. My approach varies depending on the student’s needs and learning style. However my teaching philosophy is based on encouraging students to think for themselves, using real-world examples wherever possible. I start from topics the students are comfortable with and move gradually towards more complex areas as their confidence builds. I use questions and examples to check understanding continually. I don’t lecture to students or ask them to memories things. Nor do I do the students’ homework for them!
I usually focus on exam-style or past paper questions in order to check, practice and perfect the student’s understanding and technique. I also give a lot of emphasis to some of the less obvious but vital skills such as essay structure and technique, logical thought, and the effective use of numbers and graphs. I believe passionately in the huge value of tutoring to students and take great satisfaction in seeing my students achieve their full potential.
