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.
Q & A
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.
