I am presently a private tutor for students in the subjects of Chemistry and Physics, as well as a Guitar teacher and an expert in computers and other hi-tech electronic devices.

I understand that students have different strengths, weaknesses, needs and interests, and I can adapt and cater to each student's circumstances. I enjoy working with a variety of people, and I have worked with students as young as 12 and as old as 72.

I try very hard to be helpful and understanding, and I make myself as accessible as possible. Given enough notice, I can be available at almost any time of the day, evening, or weekend.
