Information About RoryHalifax tutor
My name is Rory, and I have a BA in International Relations and am currently studying Law. I was born and raised in Halifax but now live in the UK (when there isn't an ongoing pandemic). I have extensive experience with research and essay writing and love helping students to explore the topics that interest them. I have also debated competitively for over 10 years, representing Canada three times at the World Championships.
Beyond my academic interests, I am an avid baker and love to play music. I also love to start new DIY projects and play squash recreationally.
I have over five years of experience in teaching debating to groups of students aged 8-18. This includes working with students who speak English as a second language. This teaching involved helping students to learn language, analysis, and presentation skills, as well as how to develop a deep and varied knowledge of current events and political issues.
Over the past year, I have also been part of a program at my law school where students go to secondary schools to teach children about some of the laws surrounding social media, the internet, and cyberbullying.
While it may sound cliché, it is true that every student learns differently. Therefore, as a tutor, it is important to me that I develop my teaching in collaboration with the student and their parents to make sure that the best outcomes possible are achieved.
I like to use a variety of teaching tools to keep lessons interesting - videos, presentations, and interactive activities included.
