Personal Description:

I'm a Master's student in Communication and Culture who has experience leading social science seminars for undergraduate students. I have plenty of experience writing and marking academic essays, and I know the right moves to make when researching and studying. I've also edited six chapters of an upcoming academic volume on semiotics (the study of signs). My undergraduate degree was in Communication with a minor in Forensic Psychology,

Tutoring Experience:

I have two years' experience as a teaching assistant in a university setting. I've marked well over a hundred student essays and assignments, providing detailed feedback along the way. I have led tutorial sessions in undergraduate courses for two semesters, explaining concepts introduced by the professor in earlier lecture periods.

Tutoring Approach:

The best way to learn is by 'hooking' the new material to something you already know. When tutoring you, I'll try to figure out your strengths and the subjects you're interested in. Then I'll try to draw analogies and extensions between the stuff you care about and the stuff you're trying to learn. If I'm teaching you material for a university setting, I'll also make sure you're using effective reading, note-taking, and studying strategies. Above all, I'll try to ignite a passion for the subject at hand as best I can!
