I have a Bachelor of Science (Honours) in physics and astronomy and a Bachelor of Education in experimental science, with a strong math and physics background, problem-solving skills, and hands-on laboratory experience. I am passionate about physics, math, and astronomy, and my priority is helping students reach their highest learning potential as they explore the world of science and technology. I have been teaching math, physics, science, and technology for over 10 years. My strategy is based on problem solving and learning by doing.
