I am a theoretical physicist and I have loved all my life the study of the universe and its secrets through research and continued education. Mathematics and Science have offered modern humans unprecedented awareness. Strong ethical individuals, supported by coherent education and fulfilling work, can sustain peace, produce tangible progress in quality of life and help improve our cultural values. In my opinion an effort to improve this education and our willingness to cooperate and share knowledge with others is a source of happiness and virtue. Promoting an improved rational understanding of the world and the opportunities it opens for young people is why I love tutoring.
I come from a family that values education. My mother, being a Physics professor at high school, gave me the first opportunity to experience teaching and my father created an environment with rich educational resources at home. Their effort to help my education cultivated my natural curiosity and enabled a very successful student life. I always scored in the top 1% in all my classes, homework assignments, high school and university entry exams. Progress in national math competitions allowed me to successfully participate in international math Olympics events before entering university to study Physics. I kept scoring high in exams all my academic life. My parents made possible for me early to take my education in my own hands by cultivating confidence in self study and providing substantial access to educational material. I like to apply what worked for me to my students, adapting to their needs and character.
I firmly believe early well timed assistance protects a student's future in Math and Physics. It prevents learning gaps that prove depressing. You can achieve a breakthrough in self confidence by developing first a strong foundation with organization, frequent practice and disciplined methodology in small steps. Empowered by newfound clarity they get motivated. They gradually recognize they can be good at it. You can use this now
