I have a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Surabaya, Indonesia. During my college career, I started tutoring Math, Physics, and Chemistry for high school students.

I worked as a Development Chemist in Jakarta for a few years. I then moved to the United Kingdom where I earned my Masters degree in Business from Middlesex University, London.

For the past 7 years, I have been teaching ESL, Phonics (Reading and Writing), TOEFL Prep, Math, and Chemistry for K-12 students and adults.

I strive to understand my students individual needs and assess them before starting tutoring in order to effectively plan lessons and activities. I have always enjoyed learning new things, and I like to share my enthusiasm for learning with all my students. I also like to keep abreast of new and improved approaches to education.

My teaching philosophy is to build a love for learning, in whatever subject(s) interest a student. Students learning should be enjoyable, and it should be the tutors responsibility to facilitate an enjoyable, yet educational environment for a student. Students should be encouraged to express any questions that he or she may have about an academic subject(s), allowing for two-way communication between the student and tutor. I want to motivate my students to achieve their full potential and to succeed academically.

My hobbies include reading (i.e. Harry Potter, Chemical &Engineering News), swimming, and traveling.
