Recent Engineering PhD professional offering Math and Chemistry classes for University, High-School and Secondary (Grades 1 - 12) students in Edmonton area

Methodology

Being a recent student myself, I understand the rigors students go through and I come across as an approachable and warm personality whom you can freely reach out to anytime. There is no textbook definition of teaching but I consider teaching to be a two-way process that comprises flow of information between the teacher and the students, simultaneously providing a platform for student engagement. Maintaining sufficient eye contact, clarity of speech, loudness of the voice, and moving around the classroom space are simple methods that go a long way in engaging the students. Getting to know the students and their expectations at the start of a term forms an important component of my teaching. I provide a short questionnaire where I ask what they want to learn from the course, their prior knowledge about the material, if any, and simple questions that require them to kindle their thinking skills and give me an insight into their approach to a problem. Drawing the students’ attention to minor tricks and tweaks while solving linear/nonlinear equations in an attempt to simplify complex concepts forms part of my teaching as I do not neglect attention to detail. In mathematical courses, carrying out mathematical calculations without the support of a calculator is something I try to encourage during class time. These methods are recommended to be followed even during online classes keeping the current pandemic situation in mind. Critical thinking is also something I would stress for Chemistry. With regard to other methods of lecture delivery, I definitely dedicate a part of my term classes to group discussion, guest lectures if possible, practical demonstrations using audio-visual equipment if the topic is chemistry related, student presentations to the class, peer-to-peer assistance, as I believe you do not master a topic unless you can explain it well to a peer, and other approaches to promote active learning. But I take care that these other methods serve as a means of keeping student boredom at bay, and must be included in optimum quantity such that it doesn’t shift focus away from the main topic. Real-life analogies to a problem situation are something I try to provide to my students as I had obtained the same from my chemistry teacher. I find that this gives a sense of achievement and perspective to the students. Lastly, I also believe in being a human first, and then a teacher. Acts like putting a student on the spot in front of others in class can be avoided; instead I would talk to him or her in person outside of class about the question they weren’t able to answer or find out why they were sleeping in class. I also ask relevant questions unexpectedly so as to stimulate thinking among the students in three levels: individual, curiosity of what their peers think which might open a new pathway, remove hesitancy and generate a tendency to ask questions without a trigger from the teacher.

Background

I am a recent doctorate in Chemical Engineering from University of Alberta, Edmonton with a great passion and wide experience in teaching. I have undertaken 8 different teaching roles including Sessional Instructor for a 3rd year Data Analysis course, Teaching Assistant for two 2nd year and 3rd year core courses in chemical engineering at University of Alberta, Math and Chemistry Tutor for High school and University students with New College Tutor, Voluntary Math and English tutor for under-privileged students near IIT Kharagpur campus in India as a part of National Service Scheme, Govt. of India. I pursued my Bachelors and Masters in Chemical Engineering from IIT Kharagpur, one of the premier engineering institutes in India and was awarded the Institute Silver Medal for being the topper of my batch. I have a good background in data analytics as well since I do that for my research. Math and Chemistry have been an essential part of my professional life and I would love to teach the same.
