Learning and sharing knowledge are my life. As a medical doctor and surgeon I’ve done plenty of studying, lots of learning from others, as well as teaching, explaining, listening and communicating. As a tutor I look forward to getting to know your unique way of thinking and your particular academic challenge. I’m highly flexible and contactable; I can work on short notice and can often proof-read documents almost immediately. I only keep a very small and select group of students at any one time. This enables me to get to know you better and makes our work together much more productive, effective, and enjoyable. I am passionate about teaching and I work hard at it because there are few greater pleasures than helping someone master an idea and make it their own.
As a pediatric surgeon I have had the opportunity to convey important and complex scientific concepts to adults and children of all ages, usually under difficult circumstances. I’ve learned to distill an idea and share it in its purest form, using plain language, visual aids whenever possible, and tailoring my approach to ensure that my student has grasped the concept.
Einstein once wrote, "The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious. It is the source of all art and science." I believe the mysterious is beautiful because it dares us to understand it... and ALL humans are experts at understanding. I love proving this to each and every one of my students.
