Commitment / Other Details
My teaching focuses on helping my students grasp key principles and applying them for problem-solving. I derive immense joy when I see my students improve and master challenging concepts.
Rapport Building
Building trust with the students takes time, is 2-way and is an integral part of effective communication with them.

In my past teaching experience, I had adopted encouragement to motivate my students and they took the forms of edifying words and small treats.

The principles of the subjects are universal and fixed.

Curriculum updates in the form of subject delivery and exam framework can be readily grasped by going through the textbooks and assessment literature.
