Engineering Masters Student and Experienced Tutor offering Math, Physics and Chemistry Classes in Toronto!

Methodology

I believe any student who has the desire to learn can excel in Math, Physics, and Chemistry!

I start by explaining the basic concepts in each chapter with multiple examples. I give rules, steps, and methods to help solve questions which I have developed through my experience as a tutor. After this, I give students handouts to give them a lot of practice. I ensure each and every type of question is tackled. Once the textbook and the handouts are completed, I help build my students confidence by setting small quizzes and tests for them!

As an Engineer, I believe having a technical and analytical bent of mind helps me ensure that my students can tap their inner brilliance!

Background

I have tutored over 30 students of different age groups from K-12. I offer in-home lessons to all my students and make sure each one of them has my undivided attention during his session. I have a proven record of ensuring a perceptible increase in grades within 1 month of tutoring!
