English Tutor GTA - Improve Reading & Writing Skills and Learn How I Made over $7,250 in Scholarships and Awards for the Highest Grades in the Department While on the Dean's List Every Year!!!!

Methodology

I will establish a fun, supportive, encouraging, and highly flexible atmosphere for all grade levels as I utilize a two-pronged learning experience which fuses together "Course Knowledge" with "Practical Application."

The first prong, "Course Knowledge," allows me to teach students an advanced understanding of the course material. Whereas, the second prong "Practical Application" teaches the student my proven strategies of application which ensures that advanced course knowledge will directly translate into high grades.

The "Practical Application" portion is the key, as many students understand the course material, however, when they are tested they have trouble converting all their hard work learning the course material directly into high grades. Most teachers overlook the fact many students understand the material quite well yet cannot convert this advanced knowledge directly into advanced grades.

I also understand that the education system, despite trying its best, is sadly not doing the best job during the global COVID pandemic. This really matters to me, and I really want to try and help anyone who feels like they may be falling "behind."

It is not a race, it is a journey. I would love to get the opportunity to help.

Background

I am a recent Graduate from the University of Toronto with a double major in Peace, Conflict, & Justice, and Criminology, in addition to a minor in Political Science. I finished my degree with High Distinction as I earned a 3.74/4.0 GPA, and was a Dean's List Scholar 4 years in a row. My average course grade was 83% and I received over $7,250 in funding including two separate scholarships for having the highest marks in my programs.

Wow! Just finished my first session with Connor! It felt like we had know each other forever! He made me feel really confident and like the big assignments were really manageable and not that scary

I like the way he approaches the lesson and the way he speaks make me feel calm because he breaks everything down so well!
