Mathematics, Science, School/University Entrance Exam
Avi likes to show students what they are learning is relevant to their lives outside the classroom.
Avi received his MEng in Mechanical Engineering from Imperial College London (an integrated degree incorporating bachelor level study) and is undertaking a PGCE (Mathematics) program at the University of Oxford.
Growing up in Hong Kong, Avi went to South Island School and studied the IB curriculum. He started to do peer tutoring in his high school for IB math and in university for math, thermodynamics, and mechatronics.
Starting his teaching career in 2018, Avi has taught the following subjects:
- Oxbridge Entrance Test
- Math (IB, IGCSE, AP)
- Physics (IB, IGCSE, AP)
- Chemistry (IGCSE)
- Biology (IGCSE)
- Design Technology (IB)
- Environmental Science (AP)
During Avi’s studies at Imperial College, he developed a medical robot to assist doctors in small joint surgery, created an autonomous vehicle for defusing explosive devices and investigated the use of renewable energy in the desalination of seawater. All these challenging projects were only made possible by applying the laws of physics and mathematical logic.
Avi’s dream is being a journalist covering international current affairs and science developments.
