I am a PhD student in Chemistry at the University of Windsor. I did both my Undergraduate and Master's degree in Chemistry at the University of Windsor as well. I also did a year and a half of course/research work at Cornell University. I am interested in the academic field and hope to one day hold a position in the academic world to do groundbreaking research and teach the next generation of students the very fundamentals of Chemistry. I love teaching and I have been doing it since 2011. I have taught many students at different levels and from different backgrounds. I like to make sure that students understand concepts rather than memorize. I take my time explaining concepts and always have examples on the top of my head to help understand different problems in Chemistry.
What is your teaching philosophy?
Teaching is really important as it is the key to success in this day and time. Ever since I was young, I always helped students around me understanding various concepts in science. This helped develop the teacher I am today, and I believe that having a helping hand when needed will help you succeed in your studies.
How can you help a student become an independent learner?
By helping the student become confident with the fundamentals. That way the student would have the foundation to build on independently.
How would you help a student stay motivated?
By being motivated about teaching the material myself.
If a student has difficulty learning a skill or concept, what would you do?
Explain with different examples and analogies to help them simplify the concept in such a way that they can grasp.
