I believe in developing a deep understanding of a topic and that shortcuts and teaching how to pass exams are not pathways to long-term success. Learning a new topic requires homework and doing sample questions to reinforce concepts over a period of time.
I received my Bachelor’s Degree in Chemistry from the University of Western Ontario and then went on to complete my Doctorate Degree in Chemistry at University of Western Ontario. I also have four years of post-doctoral research experience.
I tutored casually for most of 1996 to 2004, and worked at a post secondary institution developing and delivering science and engineering courses from 2007 until 2013. I have since worked as a private tutor in the region as well.
I am a father of two that enjoys his children’s activities and interests. When I am not spending time with my family I work on hobby projects, which include home renovations, gardening and many radio-controlled activities. Outside of tutoring I work as a freelance science writer and editor, which also doubles as a hobby.
