I currently study medicine and have aspirations to becoming a physician. I am here today because of all the help I have gotten from my tutors. I believe in learning the basic fundamentals of subjects and this will get students a long way into their education.

Q & A

What is your teaching philosophy?

I believe starting with a strong foundation is the key to succeeding in any class. With a strong basic knowledge, this will get students a long way into the subject. Understanding the concepts is the key to success rather than rote memorization.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

I like to know where the student stands in his/her knowledge. Without knowing how much the student knows, it is very hard to start. After assessing their knowledge base, I will adapt to how the student learns best.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

To get to where I am currently as an aspiring physician, I learned to become an independent learner. I will focus on not giving out answers, but allowing the students to problem solve in order to attain the answer. By problem solving, the student will be able to utilize resources to help with his/her own education.
