Personal Description:

My name is Prita, and I am currently a university student. I am an extremely easily distracted individual and have trouble staying focused for long periods of time studying. HOWEVER, over my school career I have acquired many tips to aid both myself, my fellow peers, and students I've helped over the years with the same problem; I would love the opportunity to pass these on to others. I am mainly a visual learner and tend to utilize diagrams, charts, tables, highlighters (colour coding), and other visual aids wherever possible in my lessons and my own personal notes. I am also an older sister to two middle-school-age children (the second of my parents four children); as such I am very comfortable at working with young children through both my experience as an older sister and volunteering (spoken about in my Tutoring / Teaching Experience section).

Tutoring Experience:

My experience with tutoring has been from volunteering at my local elementary school along with an after-school program (called COY)

At my local elementary school I volunteered with teachers and worked with students of a various grades; from junior kindergarten - grade 5 students. I aided the teachers by helping students who were struggling more than their peers, with the course work in subjects such as Math, English (aid in reading and writing mainly), and Science.

At COY (Counting On You; an after-school program designed to aid high school students from grade 9 - grade 10 in Math and English), I was a classroom assistant for one school year (two semesters) as a grade 12 student. I aided the students with math, through questions and examples (that I would explain) provided in their own homework/textbooks, examples and questions I myself created, and through short lessons utilizing examples (and diagrams where ever possible).

I have experience in French up to the grade 12 level and have helped to tutor my younger siblings in the language.

Tutoring Approach:

I would first and foremost speak with the student and/or their guardians which would be free of charge in order to determine if I am the right fit for the student before any lessons take place.

As mentioned in my About Me section I am a visual learner who is very easily distracted. As such I tailor my lessons to be as informative as possible while also maintaining an element of fun; whether its through an educational game or a simple game of would-you-rather where the student themselves gets to decide what question out of two option they would like to answer. I will utilize diagrams, charts, tables, colour coding, and other visual aids wherever possible in my lessons to help the student gain a better understanding of what is being taught. At the end of every lesson I encourage the student to tell me what they liked and what they didn't like about that day's lesson; these notes will aid in the planning of future lessons with said student.
