About the lesson
I like to get a good understanding of a persons personality, interests, strengths and weaknesses before I focus on one method of teaching. This usually means that I adapt according to one's learning style. For example with math homework I would prefer to do the first one or two questions with the child going step by step slowly showing the child exactly what to do and then letting the child try on their own. I find this approach to be the most effective as children usually have a general idea of the concept however are only missing or forgetting a few steps, specifically with mathematics. I also like to take breathing breaks especially when I feel like a child is not getting a concept or is frustrated. I like to form a bond with the student I'm working with and so if possible I like to relate school content to real life situations or ask them to link things to their life experiences and that way I get to know the child better. I am extremely patient and don't mind preparing a little extra work if need be for the child to practice in their own time.

I am a BSc Specialization second year student in Molecular, Cellular and Developmental Biology at the University of Alberta. I have been tutoring since 10th grade in high school - so around 4 years now. I am an enthusiastic, friendly tutor with a passion for education and love for children. I am incredibly patient and understanding of what it is to struggle with different concepts. I use multiple ways to teach and explain concepts as clearly and as slowly as need be. I have great reading, written and communication skills and I'm a positive, joy filled person. My last tutoring position was at Kenilworth School Edmonton, AB through Frontier College where I helped grade 7's and 8's with both numeracy and literacy and saw between 75% to 80% improvement at the end of the academic year in each student.

Mwenya is kind, caring, patient and a lovely person. Her patience and her caring nature helps when dealing with children. She’ll be able to engage with the children and as they are already her passion her job will come naturally to her. In high school she volunteered and worked with young children who adored her and this was easy to see.

Mwenya is very passionate about the subjects she teaches, and this makes it super easy to understand her. She is super amicable, respectful and punctual! I highly recommend her!
I personally feel Mwenya would make a great tutor/teacher because of her general personality. She’s a very patient, knowledgable person that always has her arms out ready to give help to anyone.
She’s a very articulate young lady and her ability to interact with all kinds of people about different topics/subjects is a huge plus as it means she’s not limited and is capable of spreading information on all levels with a great degree of comfort.
In my opinion, Mwenya having a young sister is vital because she’s already accustomed to teaching and being a perfect role model to somebody younger than herself, albeit in a different circumstance - I’m certain she’s more than capable of having the same, if not a bigger impact on other children.
I have only known Mwenya for about a year now, but I can say without a doubt she is one of the nicest and kindest person I have ever met. Mwenya is always there to help her friends, myself included, and always does so in a calm and sweet way. I believe she would make a fantastic tutor not only because she is kind and nice, but because she is really smart has not only helped me with a couple math questions but really sat down and made sure I understood it. I know Mwenya will do a fantastic job and always put in 100% effort.
She is such a hard working girl and really would go out of her way to find ways to explain ideas and concepts in a way that one would understand!
