A BRIEF BIOGRAPHY
Originally I am from Eritrea, East of Africa. I’m married and have two children. I have a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and an Advanced Diploma in computer programming and data analysis.
I lived in Toronto, Canada for more than a decade. The first 12 months, I decided to spend my time in learning the new culture and later I decided to go back to school and resume my studies in the field of programming at George brown college (GBC ).
While I was in the GBC college, my credentials were being assessed and evaluated for Ontario Certified Teacher. In June 2016, I graduated from GBC (with Honours), and in September 2016, I was certified to teach mathematics and physics in Ontario, Canada.

Since I was a little boy, I had a passion for mathematics. In elementary and junior high schools, math was fun for me. In high school and in university, math and physics became more difficult and I enjoyed the challenge. I remember sharing my knowledge with others. The passion I had and the desire to share what I know with others have guided me to love teaching profession.
While I was a 3rd-year university student, I became a mathematics tutor to freshmen students. Throughout my student life, I got the opportunity to interact with students and the insight I gained in how students learn have helped me understand where students got stuck in understanding the concept or the idea of a given topic.
From my experience, I understood most student’s belief is that:
- Math is difficult,
- Math is not interesting, and
- Math is irrelevant.
It’s from these three that my teaching philosophy is root. The philosophy of making Math fun, making it interesting, and relevant. READ MORE
