Generally, the tutoring session involve a combination of explanatory classes, audiovisual content and problem solving, prioritizing student-teacher interactions and out-of-the-box thinking.
In order to help students I often try to make connections to daily situations, giving them the tools to solve the problems without the need to memorize, but rather understanding them.
I’ve been a Teaching Assistant in the UofA’s Chemistry department since 2019. I’ve TAed in Introductory University Chemistry and some of my duties in this role are to evaluate and assess student performance and provide guidance and feedback.
Previously I was also a TA in Brazil, for Analytical Chemistry, in which I was responsible for instructing students on how to write reports and maintain a laboratory notebook.

Natalie is a great student. She is focused and comes to the lesson aware to which knowledge gaps need to be worked out. She listened attentively and asks insightful questions
Perfect! Fernanda is a very patient and dedicated teacher who always answer all of my questions and goes above and beyond to make sure I understand everything.
Great student, supper attentive and dedicated!
Perfect! Wow, she’s absolutely amazing!! She explained everything so well and overall an amazing tutor! I would recommend her to anyone looking for a tutor in anything Chemistry related:)
Dylan is a very good student, interested in the subject and willing to learn. He listen attentively and doesn't hesitate to ask questions.
Sometimes he needs to pay a little more attention to the question being asked, else than that, great student.
Fernanda is an excellent professional, explains concepts clearly and is great in joining theoretical and practical explanations. She is also very easygoing and is an excellent chemist, with a chemistry masters degree. I totally recommend her services!
Fernanda was my analytic chemistry laboratory monitor. She has always been patient and available to answer questions and help students during practices and report developments. Fernanda didn't use to give answers, but to help the students in the development of the chain of thoughts to get there. She was always very attentive to details and tried to explain the practices step by step. I recommend Fernanda for being a thoughtful, patient and didactic teacher.
I highly recommend Fernanda as your instructor! When I was in my first semester of undergrad, Fernanda smoothly guided my Chemistry lab section. She was prepared and well organized in verbally and visually outlining the events for any given day. She also knew how to troubleshoot effectively when experiments did not go as planned. Fernanda was also a very fair marker and was open to discussion when clarification was needed. Most importantly, Fernanda was friendly, which made every student in my lab feel like they could approach her, fostering a more personable and supportive sense of community within the lab. If you can have Fernanda as your instructor for your next course, you are in for an enriching and enjoyable lab experience!
As a student who studied under Fernanda’s guidance for two terms, I can say with confidence that she is a teacher that strives to bring the best out of her students. Fernanda is very approachable and I always felt very comfortable talking to her.
