U of T Computer Engineering grad teaches math and physics in Toronto

Methodology

I teach high school math and physics. My method is to teach these subjects as a philosophy. I don't just tell them how to do a certain problem. I teach them to think why they have to do it that certain way. I try to make students think for themselves so that they can become more independent.

Background

I have a Bachelor of Applied Science in Computer Engineering from the University of Toronto. As well, I am currently working on a Certificate in Data Analytics, Big Data, and Predictive Analytics at Ryerson University. I was also an Apache Spark Researcher at IBM for the summer of 2015.
