I am a biochemist degree holder with extensive experience as a high school science teacher, math and science tutor. I have worked with students from all backgrounds, from low-performing to high-achieving, tapping into their strong suits and tailoring my lessons along those strengths so that they (the students) understand the subject matter better.
My experience as a classroom teacher and graduate student means that I set high expectations for myself and my students. I encourage and guide them towards meeting these expectations while teaching them value-added skills, like approaches to solving various problems, thinking beyond the question (critical thinking), that can be applied to other subjects.
Finally, I believe that all students have the ability to understand seemingly complex concepts in Science and Mathematics, hence I stress that my students should have a "can do" attitude, or be willing to put their best effort at all times.
