Mathematics is my main area of interest. I am also very sociable, hence making my sessions very enjoyable. I strive to create light and entertaining atnospheres, as I believe this facilitates a student's ability to learn! I also never lecture during a session, I always encourage the studen to follow along and answer questions along the way. This maximizes engagement and retention. Additionally, I never move on from a topic until I am able to see that the student fully understands it.
