The best teachers inspire you, entertain you and you end up learning a ton without even knowing it. Jack
was one such teacher. He not only provided concise, visually appealing topical summaries for easy revision, but also patiently stayed back after lessons to go through concepts we were unsure of and work out any questions we could not solve. His step-by-step approach meant that his explanations for even the difficult problems became supremely easy to grasp. I especially enjoyed the fact that rather than settle for letting us memorise formulae, he went into the reasoning and proofs behind them. This proved to be particularly beneficial as it addressed misconceptions I was not even aware I had! His lessons were rather lively as well, making it vastly easier to concentrate and absorb the material. All in all, the year I spent under Jack’s tutelage not only improved my mathematical ability but also nurtured a deeper appreciation for the subject.
