About me and my teaching experience:

I come from an Indian Tamil Brahmin family of civil servants with both paternal and maternal relatives having worked in various capacities in Government. My parents and relatives spoke English at home and all my education was in English. It is thus my first language.

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 my finals and Russian is now a second language to me. I discovered that a career in medicine was not my forte as I preferred research.

I began tutoring one-on-one during my undergraduate studies as a hobby, helping fellow classmates with exam preparation. This approach was mutually beneficial and made complex concepts simpler to understand. During my masters in Australia, I took on high school students as well, many of them were Asian from Japan, China and Malaysia. I then acquired an online TEFL certificate program to accredit myself.

I lived in Canada for 5 years pursuing academic interests and tutored students from various backgrounds during college summer and winter breaks. I also help students with IELTS test preparation as I have taken both the Academic and General tests on 2 occasions. In Russian, my knowledge is both scientific and conversational and lessons can be tailored to suit a student's requirement.
