Information About BradToronto tutor
I am a young professional currently working for a global insurance firm. I am a management liability underwriter (this essentially means I figure out how much to charge companies to insure their directors and officers for various acts they commit in the course of their duty). I have a BBA specializing in risk management/finance and a minor in economics from Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo.
In my spare time, I like to spend time with family and friends, play video games, produce music for hip hop/pop artists, and watch sports.
I have never been a tutor before, but have always had a passion for teaching. I was a good student when I was in school and this often lead to me assisting my classmates with their own work.
I have worked with kids before - I was an on-ice assistant for a youth hockey team (ages 5-7). I helped run drills and encourage the kids to have fun and develop their skills as young hockey players.
My approach to tutoring is to essentially get to the core issue surrounding a person’s misunderstanding of a topic. I find that when people have trouble understanding a concept, there is often one or two “truths” they are missing or have not connected which are crucial to allow them to really have a good understanding of a topic. I like to essentially have the individual run through their entire understanding of a topic and along the way I can fill in gaps, redefine, or reinforce that understanding. I find people learn best when they have to teach others, so I sometimes like to have people attempt to teach me the subject they struggle with. This often helps identify their gaps in knowledge/understanding/application. I am an extremely patient individual and will spend whatever time it takes until the person I am tutoring experiences that “lightbulb” moment.
