Hi! I’m Kal from Toronto Canada. As a tutor, I enjoy helping students grasp difficult concepts and achieve their academic goals in a fun way!
As an undergrad student at Princeton studying Electrical Engineering on a pre-medicine track, I have developed a strong foundation and a passion for the sciences/maths and have considerable experience teaching various subjects including Physics, Chemistry, and Math.
I also founded a mathematics enrichment mentorship program for underprivileged students in my home community in Canada, which has allowed me to work with students from a mentoring standpoint in an attempt to both evoke interest in STEM related fields and inspire students to pursue their full potential.
I look forward to the opportunity of helping others achieve their goals in addition to forming relationships beyond the curriculum.
