Hi! I am from Tanzania, but I have traveled to and lived in 14 countries. I am super friendly, funny (mostly dad jokes) and love working with youth! I am a UBC graduate with a BSc. in Chemistry. I did the IB Diploma Programme 6 years ago with my HLs in Chemistry, Biology, and Math. I have been a tutor for 8 years, including tutoring IB students for Chemistry HL and SL for 7 years. I love creating learning experiences that bring my students a step closer to their dreams.

Tutor Teaching Style
I believe in making learning accessible to my students' needs. I utilize my students' strengths to make our lessons a more enjoyable and useful experience for them.
Identify their goals. Assess their strengths and weakness. Make a plan to meet the goals.
A lesson will contain clear learning objectives and include a combination of writing, provided notes, images, and examples. Students will learn what a good IB-style answer is. In the end, they will be provided with a bank of topic-based IB-style questions to practice their learning.

I really enjoy her teaching style, as she goes over the information and then gives time to practice and make sure it is fully understood.
