B.A. Mathematics & Sociology
I have over 3 years of experience in mathematics tutoring with students from primary school, to high school and university and i also help students prepare for hsc, including general 2, mathematics (2 unit) and extension maths.
My overarching philosophy in teaching mathematics is that imparting a thorough understanding of mathematical concepts and relationships is the key to student success. Methodology, implementation, and memorization of formulas and identities are also very important, but should be secondary to a true understanding of the underlying principles. In fact, it often follows that once a student grasps a certain mathematical concept, the need for memorization of methods and formulas is greatly reduced.
