Nelson Mandela writes, "Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world". I wholeheartedly believe that. My passion for and conscientiousness in my academics has inspired my desire to be a tutor where I can hopefully help others and encourage them to embrace their education and the challenges that come with it, no matter how difficult they are.

Q & A
What is your teaching philosophy?
I believe in guiding a student rather than simply telling them the answer. Questions are more important to ensure understanding of a certain subject, so I will go through problems step by step with students, knowing how much they understand, and asking them questions along the way. If they ask me if something is right, I will pose that question to them, telling them to explain to me how they arrived at the answer.
