About me and my teaching experience:

I am a Molecular Biologist planning to pursue a PhD. I come from a Indian Tamil Brahmin family of civil servants with both paternal and maternal relatives having worked in various capacities in Government. My parents and relatives only spoke English at home and rarely used our mother tongue, Tamil. English is thus my first language and all my education has been in English.

I accompanied my father to Moscow, Russia where I studied medicine in the Russian language for 4 years at the Moscow Medical University. I achieved a Grade 5 in Russian (100%) in the finals and now Russian is a second language to me. I discovered that a career in medicine was not really my forte as I was more inclined towards research.

I began tutoring one-on-one at the undergraduate level as a hobby when I helped my fellow classmates with their exam preparation. I found this approach to be mutually beneficial and a rewarding experience. During my masters in Australia, I continued to tutor and many of my students were Asian (Japanese, Chinese and Malaysian) high-school students who had difficulty with expression and pronunciation in English. I found the experience to be rewarding experience and acquired an online TEFL certificate program in one-on-one tutoring.

While pursuing additional studies in Canada and living there for over 5 years, I tutored students during my college’s summer and winter breaks.

I am a people's person and feel that language is a very important tool to share our experiences with our friends and family and to open ourselves to new experiences. I am also well versed with the IELTS test preparation as I have taken both the Academic and General tests on 2 occasions.
