Mitreni or Mitch as she is called, believes that no matter how abstract and complicated a concept is, a good teacher should simplify the concept and explain it in a way that makes it easier for students to learn and retain. A dedicated and patient teacher, with Honours degree in Mathematics & Economics, she believes in laying a strong foundation and hence devotes sufficient time to ensure concepts are absorbed well. Mitch often says “what is the joy in completing the course when fundamentals are shaky”. Focused on getting the best out of her students, Mitch uses most appropriate techniques to a topic in order for students to learn it the right way. They say “practice makes it perfect” and that’s exactly is Mitch’s approach – to give ample practice lessons. Keeping end goal in mind, her worksheets are designed to challenge students with a range of sums that provides solid grounding. Mitch‘s unique teaching style has proven to be very effective as most of her students go on to do score very high beyond their own expectations, both in their school and national exams.
At leisure, she enjoys working out at the gym and her passion is to help young minds realise their full potential!
