This is how a referee rated Tristyn:
Hello, my name is Tristyn. I am 23 years old and am currently earning my second degree. My first degree was a Bachelor of Arts in Business Communication with a Certificate in Professional sales and I am just about to graduate with a Bachelor of Education. degree in April. At a very young age, I knew my passion was teaching. From tutoring my little brother in school to completing my practicum in a classroom, I knew this is where I belong. I have worked at Pedalheads bike camps, Children's Autism Services of Edmonton, and volunteered at the Foundation for Blind Children so I can get a diverse understanding of the children that will one day be in my classroom. With times right now, I know students are struggling and I want to help as many kids as I can.
I did 2 practicum placements at different elementary schools. The first one was for a grade 3 class with 32 students and the second was a grade 6 class online. Teaching online has given me many skills I can bring to tutoring.
I believe all students learn differently and as a teacher, it is important to adapt lessons to their strengths. If a student does not understand the lesson using one method it is important to try it a different way. When tutoring kids, I want them to understand the material in their own words because that is how they truly grasp the concepts. I will do this by explaining it and probing questions to keep them engaged within the topic.
