Personal Description:

Hello! I'm Paula, I am a Portuguese international student at Niagara College, with 3 years of tutoring experience and two other university degrees under my belt.

I am a very relaxed, casual person, with a strong passion for knowledge, both obtaining and imparting it, and I am of the proven belief that anyone can be a good student and surpass any academic hurdle, if they only find the right approach to learning.

For the entire time I have spent doing this job, the best bonus has been meeting all these fascinating young people, make their lives easier, and create connections that serve to support them as they keep following their path.

Tutoring Experience:

Over the past three years, I have accompanied several students through either their highschool or intermediate school years, 2-10 hours each week, which allowed me to establish a very positive work relationship with them, adjust my teaching style to their needs, and watch them develop their skills and become better students over time.

Before that, while still in school and all the way through university, I would lead informal tutoring sessions for my peers, where I would help with class note-taking, homework, answer questions and prepare for tests and exams.

That aside, I have also obtained vocational trainer certification, which has improved and expanded my teaching skills, making it easier for me to adapt to a student's particular learning style.

Tutoring Approach:

I have always been an excellent student, and while working with my students, I like to de-complicate the subject matters into more accessible content, making it easier for them to engage with the material, become familiar even with the more complex math formulas or biological processes, develop critical thinking skills, study better, thus obtaining better results.

In our sessions, typically 2 hours long, I aim to create a casual, comfortable environment where we will work together to tackle the student's main points of animosity towards any particular subject, develop our own study material, do plenty of exercises, prepare for tests, exams and projects, always nourishing a relationship based in mutual respect, responsibility, accountability, commitment and attention to the student's wellbeing.

I am very casual and open to a plethora of different teaching methods, as long as the student reaches their desired goals by our established deadlines in the end.
