Former College Physics Instructor tutor also Mathematics and Chemistry for all levels.

Methodology

Over the years of teaching and tutoring, I gradually identified couple of recurrent patterns within the vast area of difficulties the students experience in math and sciences. After a lot of thinking and research I developed and perfected my methodologies to address them effectively while taking care to tailor them against each particular situation. I was extremely satisfied with the results, watching students recovering their grades and gaining confidence in themselves in a matter of weeks.

Background


I have master鈥檚 and bachelor鈥檚 of degrees in science (major physics, University of Ottawa) and several years of work in scientific research, teaching and data analysis. I was science instructor at Heritage College and Universel College in Gatineau teaching mechanics, electricity and magnetism, lectures and laboratories. I tutored middle school, high school, college and university students.
I welcome French speaking students too.
