I believe that every student can succeed if they are able to grow and learn in an encouraging environment that promotes curiosity and discovery. It is also important to understand a student’s learning style and strengths and weaknesses in order to design a learning strategy that will be able to optimize their progress.
I possess a Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Biology with a focus on molecular genetics and a minor in English literature.
I have had a variety of experiences tutoring over the past 7 years. I have tutored one-on-one as a peer tutor in high school from 2009-2011 and as a volunteer tutor for Frontier college from 2012-2014. I have been able to tutor small groups (3-4) of students from age groups ranging from preschool to seniors in high school through my job at Aloma Learning Academy in Brampton, Ontario. I have also been able to assist in a high school classroom setting in preparing students for their exams by conducting review sessions and assisting with supervising and marking exams.
I am currently involved in a few extracurricular activities including being a volunteer at my university faculty’s Coffee and Donut Shop. I have been a member of Toastmasters Waterloo for a few years and have been able to improve on both my public speaking skills and providing feedback to my peers. I am also involved with the UWaterloo chapter of Because I am A Girl which promotes equality for girls specifically in terms of education in developing countries.
