Personal Description:

Hi there!

For some background on my academic qualifications and work experience, I graduated with a Bachelors of Economics from the University of British Columbia (UBC) earlier this year and am now working full time at a Vancouver-based startup called Bench Accounting. My current role is an accounting associate, where I spend my days preparing the financial books of small businesses across the United States while maintaining a professional level of communication to ensure my clients receive the best service possible. I am also currently enrolled as a part-time student under the Diploma in Accounting Program at UBC as I am pursuing the Certified Public Accountant (CPA) designation.

Overall, I am a forward-looking, social, curious and critical thinking individual who realizes the value of helping others through sharing knowledge about this fascinating world!

Tutoring Experience:

The majority of my teaching experience comes from the years I spent teaching people of all ages how to sail on a dinghy (a small sailboat) during my time in Hong Kong. This experience allowed me to understand the need to approach people of different ages with a specific way of teaching and communication. As a sailing instructor, I had several crucial responsibilities outside of teaching which included the safety of a large group of people (especially children), as well as taking a leadership role and planning out the sessions to facilitate efficient education, engagement and joy from the students.

Tutoring Approach:

When it comes to tutoring, I find that age plays a vital role in the way you communicate and engage the student with the content. I aim to be approachable and relatable so the student is comfortable communicating and sharing opinions comfortably. Inspiring interest and creating tangible commonality in the content is an approach I value as it has been shown to promote engagement and the retention of knowledge learned.
I believe students should be focused on developing the ability to critically think and grasp fundamental concepts. Particularly in the local Hong Kong educational system, there is a larger emphasis on the memorization and repetition of content, which tends to cause students to forget the concepts learned once the final examination is over.
