I set goals and achieve them, and want to help you make the best use of your time. I believe in teaching through concepts which can be understood rather than information that is remembered. I like to do this by relating ideas with visuals or other analogies that can be easily grasped and understood, and once this base has been formed, building into it with new content.
I was an enhanced student at the Woodlands Secondary School, graduating with a high 90's average and being named valedictorian. I excel in mathematics and am very passionate and effective in explaining concepts to others. I have a Cambridge IGCSE degree with straight A's, with outstanding performances in math, additional math, physics and chemistry. I came first in my country at the Young Physicist Tournament 2 years in a row, qualifying internationally. I have 2 certificates of distinction from the Universoty of Waterloo in the Hyppatia and Fermat math contests.
We will start off by setting a goal and then micromanaging. I teach math and physics for high school and lower, and because of the nature of these subjects, the emphasis will be on how comfortable you are with concepts. A good measure of your understanding is how easily you can explain something in your own words. The most important skill you can have isn't 'intelligence', it's mentality, and that's what I want to help you utilize in order to get to where you want to be. I will make prepare lessons beforehand to explain new ideas, but most of the time will be allocated for answering your questions and helping you with work. Help doesn't mean answering questions for you, it means making you see them in a new light so its easier for you to solve them.
Perfect! I highly recommend Ibrahim for tutoring services. My daughter was in a crunch and need for tutoring help during her intense 11 Physics summer school course.
Ibrahim, made himself available to quickly jump in and review all of my daughter's gaps in learning. He was flexible, knew his material really well and ultimately helped my daughter achieve an A in her course.
I highly recommend Ibrahim for your tutoring needs.
