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

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.

I teach mathematics, algebra, trigonometry, physics, geometry, statistics. For the levels: elementary school, junior high / middle school, secondary school, college, university, adult education, graduate school, early childhood education
I give lessons in person at my home or a student's home.
I give lessons by webcam.
