I intend to give lessons on calculus, linear algebra, statistics and physics (particle physics and quantum physics excl.) covering NCEA level 3 or freshman year level (IB/A-level maths and physics incl.). I prefer question-based teaching aiming at exam preparation; I will guide the student through step-by-step problem solving when they find necessary, explaining the principles underlying why things/tricks work, and help them keep good book-keeping of the mistakes they have made, and more questions similar to those that they got wrong will be handed out during the coming sessions to reinforce the previous learning. I have been good at showing complex workflow in a logical and clear way, and am flexible with lesson delivery: preferably via zoom, in person, or even through email is ok (which I had to do a lot when working as a graduate teaching assistant during the August lockdown).
I am currently a doctoral candidate specialising in marine sciences, with a focus on physical oceanography; I hold a good GPA record for maths and physics-related courses (A+ for multivariate calculus, differential equations, dynamical systems, statistics, theoretical mechanics, fluid mechanics, meteorology etc.), and have had experience tutoring a university course in both a classroom setting and in one-on-one sessions, with good feedback from students.

It a small project relating to the epidemic dynamics of Ebola in Africa. I contributed to it by (i) constructing a deterministic dynamic model (ii) contacting Centres for Disease Control and Prevention of USA for extra data and making statistical inferences from the dataset (i.e. the statistical distribution of the incubation period etc.) (iii) writing the final report.
1. Graduate Tutoring Assistant for ENVSCI203 at the University of Auckland (answering the mostly assignments-related questions from the students, marking assignments, organising zoom tutoring sessions etc.)
Perfect! It was a pleasure to have you to explain things to me.
Need to polish some basic skills; moving around terms in an equation, try to be less distracted by the coefficients in complicated equations, etc.
