what makes her an awesome tutor
I understand the frustration of not getting a concept and it’s hard when you don’t know what you’re doing wrong. The best advice I ever got was from my grade 12 calculus teacher who told me: “build your knowledge like you would build your house. Make sure you lay down the foundation, so that your house doesn’t crumble in the future.” So let’s do exactly that, build a strong knowledge house starting from the basics, just like my teacher did with me.
Life Goal: To spend my life growing and learning from those around me, and spreading a little cheer by helping others the best I can!

When you're not crunching numbers: I like to be active by going to the gym, going ice skating in the winter or biking by the waterfront in the summer. You can find me covered in paint when I’m exploring my artistic side. I’m also the chef you need if you’re into spicy Indian cuisine. I take my spices seriously, it’s no laughing mattar. (Mattar means peas in Hindi.)
What’s the best thing about you? I truly love encouraging people to be the best they can be, and I pride myself in being an optimist. I believe things can always be worse, and small progress is still progress. If you’re ever having a bad day, feel free to reach out to me. I’m a great listener.
I’m really into science-fiction. If you’ve watched Stargate: Teal’c is my favourite character of all time, and Window of Opportunity is my favourite Stargate SG-1 episode.
