Mechanical Engineering student offering help with Higher and Intermediate 2 Mathematics and Physics

Methodology

My teaching methodology is simplify every possible problem, question and answer in the easiest way. This way broadens the users understanding of what is being asked while proving to the user to learn from any specific subjects foundations. I base my method of learning on hard concepts I've learned in my university career and in following the previously mentioned methodology, I have always found simplifying the scenario helps to greatly increase the users knowledge of the subject

This is my most recent work experience, where I taught preliminary and higher mathematics. In tutoring I helped organize activities and study sessions for the students as I was helping to keep the topics being studied interesting and motivating. I also taught them about the importance of listening and reading specific questions. This helped open my eyes to teaching.
