ExperienceI have been teaching every semester since my first year at high school, amounting to around 7 years worth of teaching experience. I have taught both younger students and my peers for many years now, and understand well the particular level that concepts and ideas need to be pitched at for different students. I am able to gauge quickly the present level of understanding of a student, and have various strategies for ensuring efficient learning. All of these center around a focus on concepts and making the student capable of actually solving problems using their own thought process. I train students to direct their thinking in a certain way, rather than shoehorn their thinking into a certain, generic style, since such methods may work for some people but not for everyone.
My primary motivation for tutoring is the satisfaction I get in making people understand what they are doing. I wish more and more people to be capable at understanding analytic subjects like Mathematics and Physics, which will form the foundation for so many future applications in our world.
I have a Bachelor's degree in Physics from McGill University, which offers one of the most rigorous Physics programs in Canada. I have taken advanced university courses in most areas of Physics and Mathematics, including (highest levels listed):
Advanced Linear Algebra
Partial Differential Equations
Ordinary Differential Equations
Calculus, upto Multivariable and Variational Calculus
Advanced Fourier Analysis
Advanced Classical Mechanics
Advanced Quantum Mechanics
Advanced Electromagnetic Theory
Advanced Statistical Mechanics
Signal Processing and Circuits
-> As mentioned earlier, I have been teaching in some capacity since my first year in high school, from one-on-one sessions to groups of 15 people, from half hour conceptual discussions to 4 hour long exam practice sessions.
-> I have been teaching assistant for courses in Honours Differential Equations and a Masters level course in Quantum Condensed Matter during my time at McGill University.
-> I initiated the formation of a volunteer tutorial service run by the Pakistani Students Association. The service managed tutorial sessions before midterms and finals for a variety of university level mathematics courses, taking care of the managerial details so that tutors could concentrate on just tutoring. The proficiency of tutors was judged in practice sessions that I supervised. I also offered tutorials for the service myself.
