what makes her an awesome tutor
I’m very patient, and I enjoy finding multiple ways to solve one problem. This means if one problem-solving strategy doesn’t work for a student, I’m generally quite good at finding an alternative strategy. I love math and science, and have a genuine interest in sharing my love of learning with others! :)
Life goal: To travel lots and see as much of the world as possible
Words to Live By: “The secret to getting ahead is getting started”
Favourite Mathematical Weapon: Practice! I truly believe that anybody can be good at math/science. All it takes is some practice! The more you practice, the more tools you have to solve any problem given to you.
