Doctoral student provides English writing and literacy help for high school students in Toronto

Methodology

I am passionate about English literature and language and I enjoy sharing this passion with others through teaching using a discussion and inquiry based format to help students enhance their understanding of the connection between argumentation and clarity of expression. I encourage students to think of writing and reading as a multi-step process and instill them with confidence through patience and compassion. I have been studying English at the post-secondary level (undergraduate and graduate) for almost a decade. I am currently pursuing a PhD in English.

Background

I have been a teacher at the post-secondary level for four years. During this time, I have had the pleasure of seeing students transfer the skills acquired in tutorial to other subject areas. One student said the critical thinking skills she learned helped her on her Dental School application - she was accepted!
I also have two years of experience of private tutoring. I tutor students who range in grade (from grade 8 to grade 11) and ability.
