Physicist with 11 years experiences of mentoring, Tutoring Physics, Mathematics and Chemistry

Methodology

My teaching method is more hands on. I like to encourage students to think critically and ask as much questions as possible. I have taught physics, mathematics, and chemistry at high school and college levels. I try to be available for students and to answer their questions as often and as soon as possible.

Background

I am a physics postdoctoral researcher with more than 10 years giving physics, calculus, algebra, organic chemistry and thermodynamics lessons. I have a phd degree in physics. I have taught, tutored and mentored more 100 high school, and college students.
