Personal Description:

I am a married man with 5 children of my own. My home is set around education. I am fascinated by seeing children develop over time, of which education plays a vital role. I enjoy being involved in education. In terms of personality I would describe myself as soft-tempered, friendly and attentive.

Tutoring Experience:

I have lectured numerous subjects during my years at university, including statistics and philosophy, and I am involved in homeschooling my own kids. I also give chess classes privately, and had students for trumpet classes in the past.

Tutoring Approach:

I believe that a key to success in subjects such as mathematics is to be able to understand the problem before attempting to solve the problem. In my opinion, problems are very often approached the wrong way round: a methology to solve a problem is presented before explaining the problem. However, to solve real world problems, one has to acquire the skill to understand a problem first, and then to work towards a solution, for which no method might have been specified. When approaching problems in this way, it opens doors for creativity and insights far beyond the reach of those who merely apply a taught methodology. Applying a method would now be based on insight rather than mere repetition. Following this philosophy helps to identify areas of development that might need to be worked on.
