Bio

I am a determined and disciplined individual. I believe discipline is necessary for building good working relationships & determination is always a necessary prerequisite in any successful endeavour.

I always try to simplifying teaching Mathematics by first making a simple illustration, perhaps by demonstrating using normal everyday calculations that we subconsciously do. This makes the process easier and demystifies the false belief that Mathematics is hard. I also use periodic humour, based on the content, to ease the tension associated with learning Mathematics.
