I am a very detail oriented and passionate person. I believe every complex problem can be solved by breaking it into multiple steps and by logic. I enjoy tutoring and have been doing this for years now. I mostly use diagrams, videos, presentation if required for tutoring because I believe a visual effect has more power and can be easily grasped. I always try understanding the student's need or problem and will focus on that area to solve it.
In my free time I like to go out for hiking, biking, cooking, or maybe a leisure walk.
