Happy to provide a curriculum or assist you in specific needs and assignments. I love teaching ESL English and Science from 6yo kids to adults, and have also tutored elementary level math and algebra. I am a PhD in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Melbourne, following a Masters in Molecular Mechanisms of Disease. I am Dutch Australian, passionate about taekwondo, and have lived and worked in South Korea as well. I have been tutoring online for around 10 years. Love to go hiking when I get the chance. I am outgoing and energetic, and happy to help you get confident in your skills. Connect with me for a free 15 min intro session to get to know each other.
