I am a 4th-year Chemistry student at UBC engaged in quantum cryogenic chemistry research. My appreciation and passion for chemistry has grown exponentially over time and I want to spread that knowledge to the bright young minds of the future. I went from almost dropping all my science courses in high school to specializing in Chemistry at university, so I understand the discouraging mindset that plagues many kids. My empathetic view while encouraging deep understanding of the material leads to effective long-term learning for my students.
I used to tutor elementary school children in high school in a range of subjects with a focus on making the content enjoyable and engaging for the students. At university, I have had the opportunity to experience all ends of the chemistry teaching spectrum, so I have learned the markers of a poor teacher and a very effective teacher. I consolidate all of this information to be the most effective teacher I can be. I have also learned that it is crucial to be dynamic as a teacher and listen to students' feedback and adjust the teaching plan accordingly.
My aim is to encourage a deep appreciation for chemistry by applying a strong foundation of theoretical knowledge to the everyday world. I continuously learn how important chemistry is in our everyday lives and how its concepts can be extrapolated to many different areas of life. Showing my students this perspective encourages an exciting outlook and a tangible reason for learning chemistry. This reinforces the desire to build a strong base of chemistry knowledge.
