Hello! My name is Amanda and I am currently available to tutor in Toronto. I enjoy cooking, music, and soccer, and love animals, traveling, and reading.

Tutoring Experience:

I completed my undergrad degree in 2012, where I graduated with the highest marks in my Gender Studies program. Following that, I was a Teaching Assistant for 2 years (2012-14) at the University of Ottawa (Institute of Women's Studies). I received training relating to grading, and editing essays and assignments.

Further, I have experience living and working with people from various countries, many of whom spoke English as a second language, so I am able to help with conversational English skills as well.

I have also excelled at public speaking, going on to compete various times at the regional level, and winning a Lions Club Public Speaking competition. I am able to assist with speech writing and delivery, and memorization tips.

Finally, I have created and delivered trainings / workshops on the topics of anti-racism, anti-oppression, and issues relating to gender and sexuality. Additionally, I have active-listening, support work, and conflict mediation skills. If you would like more information or resources relating to these topics I can also assist you with that.

I currently tutor students in conversational English skills, assisting a TA with ESL, and am assisting a student applying to university.

Tutoring Approach:

Presently, I am available to help edit essays and assignments, or to discuss and clarify readings and concepts relating to Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, and Global Development Studies. I am also able to help with English conversation skills and homework. I can meet either in person or via Skype.

I work with you to figure out what your goals are and how I can support you (eg. pronunciation, vocabulary building, essay editing, etc.). We can look at assignments/ materials, books, or chat. I can help with written assignments, emails, conversation skills, etc.

I look forward to hearing from you!
