My first meeting with students is about his needs for the subject. A problem can be solved with more than one method. I encourage students to suggest the possible solutions and then explain why the particular approach is the best to address the issue.
I am always open to teach the subject either chapter wise or by the random selection of topics depending on the requirement of student.
Through education and job responsibilities, I am able to explain complex concepts of chemistry, Geology and Environmental Science in an effective and understandable manner with the help of examples and illustrations. I have been tutoring VCE and university students for the last nine years and deliver my best. I am punctual and understand the need of students with variable stage of competency.
Sound knowledge of VCE/Graduate level Chemistry, Geology and Environmental Science course and examination procedure through education and job experience.
