Tutor Personal Information

Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have 3 years of experience teaching Mathematics and Physics at a variety of levels, as well as English and General Paper.

My teaching philosophy is that all things can be learned from an understanding of basic concepts. Too many students today simply memorise complex formulas and concepts without understanding how they are derived. As a result, when asked to apply these creatively in exams they do not know how, and their grades suffer. I also believe that learning should be fun, and if you can teach someone to learn for themselves out of a genuine interest, it will be far more beneficial for them in the long run.

In line with my philosopy, my teaching methods involve taking one topic at a time, and breaking it down into it's most basic principles. Once these are understood, we move on to more complicated concepts before engaging in creative questions that challenge the student to apply several concepts together to form a solution. The result is a deep and intuitive understanding of the subject, rather than a shallow knowledge of its formulas.
