Noel "...Technology has allowed for an incredibly vast amount of information to be available online, and I hope to provide that zeal to whet my students’ appetite to learn more and see what is out there.

Dharani "...I believe that you have truly mastered a concept once you can explain it back to someone, so I use this idea in my tutoring style.

In my free time I enjoy journalling, reading, and a fair amount of Netflix..."
