I have formally tutored at my school for 2 years in which I taught grade 9 pre-IB mathematics and grade 10 pre-IB math. I have also tutored 3 different students in grade 9 English at both the academic and pre-IB level. Additionally, I have 2 years of experience as a DECA and debate trainer, through my extra-curricular involvement.
Last summer I have at a private academy teaching gr.1-2 math as well as gr.5-6 public speaking/writing. I have taught up to 10 students at a time via Zoom.
I am naturally inquisitive and bring that enthusiasm as a tutor! I believe that academic support comes in many forms and relies on a positive and welcoming learning environment. Therefore, I prioritize communication and maintaining a friendly atmosphere--the trust I build with my students makes lessons more comfortable and fun, enhancing their academic improvement as well. I believe one of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my patience, I understand that making mistakes is a critical part of the learning process and encourage risk-taking.
Having taught numerous students, I know the importance of adjusting my teaching methodology to suit my tutee's learning styles and keep an open mind to feedback.
Lastly, I like to celebrate my students' accomplishments! It can be anything from a text message of encouragement to a small snack, but I believe that it is important for my students' hard work to be appreciated and recognized.
