Senior Math and Science Tutor
About:Bilal received his undergraduate degree at McMaster University, graduating with an Honours in Chemical Biology. He undertook a co-operative aspect to his academics, and worked as an undergraduate researcher in universities and institutes in Vancouver, Hamilton and Berlin. His love for discovery, learning and sharing sparked his passion for travel, and he has spent years exploring diverse cultures and places. He recently returned from travelling around Europe, participating in many projects, including to help repair a traditional engine-less tall ship and sail across the Atlantic Ocean.
Bilal's diverse experiences have helped accustom him to be comfortable with people of all ages and life stories, which ties deeply into his passion for learning and sharing. He has tutored students of all ages, including his own sisters and brother, and focuses on shaping their understanding rather than memorization. His main expertise lies in teaching senior Math and Science, however his interests are as far reaching as Anthropology and History, and learnt to speak French and Spanish during his recent travels.
His experience teaching up to eighteen Chemistry undergraduate students at a time in the lab, combined with numerous years of teaching students one-on-one in middle school and high school in Math and Science, have allowed him to develop the focus, rapport and creative techniques to make any student feel comfortable and open up to learning. His interest in education lies not in forcing students to do study because they feel they have to, but rather to help them rekindle their curiosity so they want to learn, explore and share.
