Information About RisaGatineau tutor
This is how a referee rated Risa:
I am currently pursuing my honours degree in philosophy with a focus on ethics with a minor in law. My future career goals are to teach at a secondary school level. I have always been one to help out peers that I see struggling since I enjoy and believe in education. Since high school, I have enjoyed and shown great competency in reading and writing. I take my studies seriously in order to maintain a grading average of over 90% but also understand that learning should not be a stressful endeavour. As much as I focus on my education, I also make time for myself to do the things I enjoy, which makes me a better student in the long run.
This would be my first time tutoring professionally but I believe I have relevant experience. While I was still attending high school, I would spend time helping out in the classroom designated for children with autism spectrum disorders. This experience taught me a lot about patience and about teaching because I had to help guide students who were learning things that I had never thought had to be taught before. I also worked for one year as an inbound call center insurance agent. At this position, I would teach clients every day about their policies, specific coverages, and even how the insurance industry works in general. I had to learn to diversify my approaches since some people learned by doing equations together, others learned better when I wrote out all the information for them. Lastly, I have always been more than happy to help my peers out when they are struggling and while they were not paying me to help them, I would always try my best to leave them only once they were comfortable with the material that they were struggling with before.
My approach to tutoring will be different with each student. At first, I want them to talk to me and get a sense of how they are feeling. For example, if there are feelings of resentment toward the material then we need to address those first before trying to learn it again. I always want my student to feel confident and capable, even if it takes a little convincing. I will strive to be patient and flexible with every student. If my first approach did not work, then we will try another one based on the response. Most importantly, I will always treat my students as equals. I may know more about a certain subject than they do, but I will always have more to learn and I am sure that they have lots to teach me. I am capable of being stern when a student needs to know that they are not focused, but I do so empathetically so that there is always a balance of reaching the objective curriculum goals and encouraging the student's academic confidence.
