B.Sc. Computer Science grad with T.A. and tutoring experience teaches programming in Montreal

Methodology

I believe that students learn best when given a chance to solve problems on their own. When approaching a new topic, after explaining the topic and giving the student a chance to ask clarification questions, I like to let the student work on an example problem. This lets me know whether they have reached true understanding. If they are struggling, I look for the source of the struggle and adapt my explanations until something sticks.

Background

I hold a B.Sc. joint majoring in Computer Science and Biology from McGill University. I have T.A.'d COMP 202 (Introductory programming course in Java) at McGill for 4 semesters. I also have an M.A. in Anthropology from Concordia, during which I gained additional teaching experience. I have attended numerous workshops on teaching and for the past year I have been employed as a tutor by Concordia's Access Centre for Students with Disabilities.

Perfect! Zahra is an excellent tutor. She answered all my questions and gave me additional resources for further studying. She communicated clearly and had no trouble reformulating her explanation when I did not get it the first time. Furthermore, Zahra was punctual and responded quickly when I messaged and emailed her. Would greatly recommend!

Zahra's response

Andrey is a strong student who wanted some tutoring support reviewing for finals (Python) over Skype. We reviewed and stepped through sample questions. He was on time for our sessions, quick to understand my explanations, and very prompt with payment.

Zahra's response

Unfortunately I did not get to meet Larissa as she had to cancel our appointment, but she was very kind and friendly and offered to pay for the lesson anyway.
