Hi there! Are you looking for a committed, reliable, and enthusiastic tutor? Well, teaching and learning are more of a second nature to me, having been raised by parents who are both teachers. I have done plenty of studying and lots of learning on many exciting and challenging topics. All these experiences have influenced my decision to take on the teaching role in various capacities. As a tutor, I am looking forward to getting to understand your needs and helping you achieve your academic goals. I'm highly flexible and contactable.

Areas of interest: Business, accounting, Project management, sociology, technology, computers, English, linguistics, media, philosophy, political science, statistics, data science, Excel, psychology, art, history, health education, gender studies, cultural studies, ethics, religion. I am also decent with math(s) & Programming. If you have a project you think I can take on, please feel welcome to invite me, and I'm going to check it out!
