***Given the current COVID-19 pandemic, I'm available to provide online tutoring for students. Please reach out for further details.****
Current medical student at the University of Alberta. Experienced tutor with 3+ years of teaching and tutoring experience. Obtained a MSc in Surgery and a BSc in Biological Sciences from the University of Alberta. Privately tutored 55 students from elementary to high school in the subjects math, science, physics, biology, and chemistry.
I've been tutoring with First Tutors for 3+ years. I independently organized a 5-hour prep session to prepare Grade 12's for the Chemistry 30 Diploma, which I supplemented with several mock diplomas. I was previously a teaching assistant (TA) for the Department of Psychology at the University of Alberta, where I lectured 26-120 students and helped prepare the midterms and final exams. Prior to First Tutors, I was a substitute teacher for math and science in Uganda and held after-class sessions to prepare students for the Ugandan national high school entry exam.
From my teaching experience, everyone learns differently. My tutoring method is tailored to each student as I aim to recognize their individual strengths and weaknesses in regards to learning. My personal philosophy is to engage students in active learning rather than passive learning, which will help them retain concepts long-term. I also help students develop new studying techniques that will prepare them to become independent learners in the future.
