Michael began his teaching career while an undergraduate student as a volunteer tutor for children from low-income backgrounds. During his time at Cambridge, he gained research experience in calculus and differential equations and became one of the authors of a peer-reviewed academic article in applied mathematics. While a doctoral candidate at University of Toronto he has been a teaching assistant of an undergraduate mathematics course.
His natural approach to teaching is multifaceted. It involves adapting his teaching style to the individuality of each student and using the most suitable learning resources to help the student fully grasp the subject. Ultimately, he enjoys broadening the learning scope by linking the curriculum to real-life applications to further inspire the students, as he believes the value of science can only be appreciated when its usefulness is actively demonstrated.
