Swiss Pride Award, Dare to Try (Innovation) for exhibiting 'Dare to Try' attitude through innovative methods in his teaching
I have 14 years of physics and science teaching experience and 6 years of coaching and counseling work. I emphasize much on conceptual problem solving using heuristics. I often use technology to engage students, individual and in group tuition, to enhance their understanding and interest. As a trained counsellor and coach, I focus in developing students' potential and motivation in how to achieve performance and success in general.
I am a songwriter and I provide songwriting and guitar coaching and home-based music production coaching. This is very suitable for beginners even without musical training background but interested to write and produce your own songs.
