I am a PhD student working as a graduate teaching assistant at Florida Atlantic University. I used to teach general Physics labs for undergraduate students and served as a teaching assistant for undergraduate physics classes. I like teaching and helping students to understand the basic concepts.
I have been doing private tutoring since 2007, and like to solve problems and answer questions in tutoring sessions while explaining the theory in the book. I believe students can understand the theory very well if someone teaches them with examples and practical applications. I always encourage students to think and start answering the problems themselves.

I am very familiar with Windows environment, and have good hands-on experience in MATLAB, Mathematica and MS office software and Adobe Photoshop packages.
