About the lesson

I work with students in all years of high school (grades 9-12), but am certainly open to any younger students wanting to get a head-start in their STEM career!

I understand - physics and math can seem daunting with their many formulae and constants that all seem to get jumbled up. To prevent this from happening, taking inspiration from my wonderful teachers, I focus on developing an intuitive understanding of subject matter rather than trying to force its memorization. My tutees are presented with real-life situations in which they encounter physics and mathematics or their analogues, and from this they develop a foundational grasp of what the numbers are conveying. This leads to a deep comprehension of physical situations and word problems as well as the numbers through which they are communicated, and from there, picking out key information and solving a problem becomes second nature.

I pay close attention to my tutees' areas of improvement, whether they be methodological or related to a specific topic, and if need be, will rebuild from the ground up the strategies with which tutees face these weaknesses. I am also a firm believer that, second to developing intuition, practice makes perfect, and thus engage students in a multitude of practice problems that improve not only their understanding of a topic, but their working efficiency and problem-solving abilities.

In reality, you cannot entirely avoid the expressions and numbers fundamental to these subjects, but by learning them in an intuitive manner and applying what you have learned in practice questions, physics and mathematics will become as fun as they would have been challenging.

About Gurman

Thanks for checking out my profile!

I recently completed the IB programme at Turner Fenton Secondary School in Brampton. During my time in SL Physics class, I served as a voluntary teacher's assistant who helped check through lessons, worksheets, and answer keys for quizzes and tests to locate mistakes and correct them. I'd always find myself helping out other students in school, discovering where students struggled the most and fostering a class which was interested and engaged in learning physics, rather than one that saw it as another arduous subject.

I completed the IB programme with a 100% in all physics and math classes in grades 11 and 12. I'm now entering my second year in the Astronomy and Physics Specialist program at UofT, and continue to maintain a 4.0 GPA across my physics classes. I hope to continue using my skills over the summer to improve other students' understanding of, and performance in mathematics and physics.

I look forward to working with you!

    When and why did you develop an interest in your chosen field?

    Since I was in elementary school, I'd always wondered how the physical world around me worked. Moreover, space intrigued me as it was something that seemed so inaccessible, but at the same time something that scientists were able to learn so much about. I found myself wanting to contribute to this kind of research in the future, so I naturally became interested in the subject of physics and the mathematics through which it is communicated. My motivation to become a researcher has only increased since then, and as of fall 2021, I will have begun my journey of pursuing a degree in Astronomy and Physics at the University of Toronto.

    What makes you passionate about your subject?

    Being at the forefront of astronomical research has always been a dream of mine, and my passion lies in the prospect of expanding the wealth of knowledge about the cosmos that humans have accumulated since civilization first arose. This passion extends to my tutees who I wish to aid and inspire on their own academic journeys, whether or not these be within STEM. Scientific and mathematical literacy is becoming increasingly important in all fields, and so it makes me glad to know that I can facilitate the learning and growth of students in a variety of fields using my knowledge in math and physics.

    What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?

    I enjoy being able to provide students with a learning opportunity that is more tailored to their needs and learning styles than what can be offered in a class setting. It's a great feeling when students have that 'aha!' moment when they find out how to solve a problem they've been stuck on, because it shows me that I was really able to help them out and provide them with a novel approach to applying their knowledge. I feel that the strategies I use to tutor also make content more tangible for students, so these moments happen more often than not!

  • 04

    Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you? Please explain.

    I was extremely lucky to have a fantastic physics teacher for both semesters of physics in high school. He inspired many of the methods I use to tutor, as he used an approach to teaching that emphasized building and applying foundational knowledge rather than memorizing and regurgitating what was taught. I can definitely say that this was vital to my success in the physics course, and I hope I will be able to say the same for my own students.

  • 05

    What are your keys to success?

    I believe anyone can be successful in what they do as long as they put forth full effort towards achieving their goals. In terms of academics, this means to find what subjects enthuse you, and to spend a little extra time to excel at those subjects and become a master of your trade. It's always good to go beyond what is being taught in school and learn ahead, to make yourself stand out from the crowd and for others to be able to recognize your passion. On another note, practice makes perfect! You can amass all the knowledge you want, but if you lack the ability to apply it, it is of little use. Teachers assign homework for a reason!
