Jacques D - Tutor in Dassierand

Hi there! I have a degree in Mechanical Engineering and am busy with my post-graduate (Masters) in Computer and Electronic Engineering. I have therefor been exposed to a wide variety of scientific curricula and have experience in solving complex problems, as well as professional technical writing and presenting. I have experience with tutoring Maths, as well as Natural Sciences in person, but have decided to provide my services through an online platform from now on. I have experience in tutoring students with various learning techniques and am quick to adapt to a student's strengths and weaknesses.
