School is not only about grades, exams and performance. It's part of it, yes, but too often the real point of education gets lost in trying to achieve benchmarks. I like to cooperate with parents and students who aim beyond that and have deep learning and self-development as the main goal. I believe mentors should help children and youth in finding their life purpose.
My aim is to help you understand the subject and inspire passion for science. I believe that an educational process is about developing the skills, attitude and zeal needed to become a life-long learner, not a mechanical learning by heart just to better the school performance.
I use simulations, demonstrations, selected videos, interactive whiteboards. I practise constructive feedback as a positive reinforcement and reflection on the thinking process. For each class I am prepared with an accurate aim, but I maintain flexibility if an urgent need comes up from you.
I have 4 years experience in teaching in IB. I’ve been tutoring for 6 years and I will keep going for years to come. I enjoy building a relationship with the student based on trust and commitment. My students are of extreme importance to me and I strive to be a significant figure on one's educational journey.
He treats classes very seriously, I always felt I can rely on him. He's well prepared professional. While having classes he challenged me to get better and cheered me up when needed. I really felt comfortable with Tofi and I think it would be the case with any other student as well :). Thank you, Tofi!
Reliable & approachable
I worked with Tofi for 2 years and not only he helped me understand chemistry but also build an appreciation for the subject. He has a lot of patience and really approach the class from student's perspective. I would recommend him to any student in need of help in chemistry.
Tofi helped me a lot by giving me time and space. He somehow understands the what way I don't understand chemistry and then makes it clearer and clearer. Incredible guy, I highly recommend him.
