Personal Description:

I am a Biochemistry Masters student at the University of Calgary. My present studies and lab work are focused on immunology and proteomics. I have a diverse history of academic learning in the sciences, including, chemistry, biochemistry, and statistics. I am most experienced in Tutoring Gr12 and first year chemistry.

I have always been athletic and played many sports (Hockey, Football, Rugby, Soccer) and value a healthy balanced lifestyle. Moreover I am a social and amiable person who gets along well with anyone.

I happen to also speak four languages (English, German, French, Spanish). Knowing these second languages improves my communication abilities, especially, for ESL students.

Tutoring Experience:

Biology tutor club in High school for all of Grade 12 (9 months). 2014.
Paid 1st year Biology and Chemistry tutor during last three years of university (24 months). 2016 - 2019.

Taught yoga and mediation to residence students (16 months). 2016 - 2017.
Substitute Mediation practice leader for three years (24 months). 2016 - 2019.

Tutoring Approach:

Specific goal centered approach. What are you hoping to learn in our tutoring sessions? Do you want assignment specific solutions, or a thorough understanding at the conceptual level? While I love to go down a rabbit hole in explaining a concept to make it clear and tangible, I can appreciate the necessity for a brief, straight to the point message to get the work done. The choice is yours.

I like to teach by analogy, visualization, and when possible, by using models (e.g. molecular). By these methods I make the subject content more relatable, and students can really feel they understand it more easily.
I yearn for the "Eureka!" moment when it finally 'clicks' in my students.
