I am experienced tutor living in Vancouver. I have a Master degree in Physics and a Ph.D. degree in chemistry.
I have been a teaching assistant of physics and chemistry courses for seven years and private tutor for math and physics for five years. I understand the main difficulties students have when learning these topics for the first time and will help you to overcome it. I can tutor college and upper level high school (grades 10-12, ) courses in mathematics, physics and chemistry.
I also have experience tutoring AP, IB and SAT subject tests in math, physics and chemistry.
I am available to meet in person at UBC or nearby in Vancouver. I am also available for help online. Whether you want recurring sessions or just a review before your exam, send me a message to discuss your needs!
Chemistry sessional instructor at UBC (2018-2019)
Teaching assistant for a variety of physics and chemistry courses for 8 years.
I have tutored dozens of students in mathematics, physics and chemistry, both at high school and college levels.
My teaching methodology starts by providing you with intuition of the topic at hand. This will allow you to have a deeper conceptual understanding. Only after you understand the topic, we proceed to solve specific problems. I will show you step by step how to solve some problems, as well as I will guide you to solve your own. I will also show you how the solution fits into the conceptual understanding of the topic, in a way that will enable you to tackle new problems that you have never seen before.
Subjects I teach:
UBC Math 100, 101, 102, 103, 104, 105, 110, 180, 184, 200
