Education is the best gift you could give to yourself (or others).
As an educator with a B.S. in Chemical Engineering from the University of Surabaya (Indonesia) and a master's degree in business from Middlesex University, London (UK) and continuing education at Virginia Commonwealth University, Richmond, VA (USA), I have witnessed and experienced that education makes communities - and myself - stronger. I am passionate in sharing knowledge with generosity, positivity, and empathy as well as in keeping abreast of new and improved approaches to teaching/tutoring.
I started tutoring Math, Physics, and Chemistry for high school students during college, then worked as a Development Chemist in Jakarta for a few years. For the past 10 years, I have been teaching/tutoring Math, SAT/ ACT Prep, Chemistry, ESL, and Phonics (Reading and Writing) 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.
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 tutor's 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.
In my free time, I read, go outdoors, do yoga, swim, and travel.
