what makes her an awesome tutor
I am passionate about science and math and am enthusiastic about helping students get excited about the work they are doing. When learning I always use study tricks to help me solve problems and work out concepts. I help students find the tricks that work for them so that they can master the concepts they are learning and apply their knowledge to various types of questions. I can definitely relate to the pressures students feel at school and am committed to helping motivate students to do their best work!

Favourite Mathematical Weapon: Check your understanding! A problem can always be done several ways. By using multiple methods to solve a problem you can gain a deeper understanding of the mathematical concepts being used.

What's the best thing about you? My favourite thing in life is meeting new people and finding out what motivates them!
I love science and love teaching others about science. I have also listened to every science podcast out there so I have an abnormal amount of knowledge about the most random topics.
