MA geography graduate offers English writing help and social studies tutoring for high school and college students in Surrey

Methodology

I specialize in working with high school and college students to improve their reading comprehension, writing, and test preparation skills. I tutor a variety of social studies and social science subjects including anthropology, geography, and history.

My teaching philosophy, above all, emphasizes kindness, patience, and understanding. When a student struggles with a difficult concept, I have a knack for patiently explaining these concepts in lay person's terms. This helps students build their knowledge and develop confidence.

My teaching methodology is suited to one-on-one sessions or small groups where I can help students individually with their work. I review the lesson with students and go over concepts that they are struggling with. To help students remember difficult or abstract concepts, I use examples, visual models, and diagrams as memory aids. I also help students proofread and edit written assignments. I have a strong grasp of English grammar rules and a knack for explaining these rules in ways that students can understand.

Background

I have always been curious about the world around me. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology from Athabasca University in Alberta, and I recently completed a Master of Arts in Human Geography from York University in Toronto. In addition to anthropology and geography, I took elective courses in environmental studies, history, Indigenous studies, and French language. My university studies have allowed me to travel to Southeast Asia, where I have worked with local communities on social and environmental issues.

While I was a graduate student at York University, I worked as a teacher's assistant for a diverse class of students. I designed tutorials and assisted students with their assignments. In addition to my formal teaching experience, I have often helped friends with their homework, and I have also volunteered as a conversation partner for newcomers learning English. My students' feedback has emphasized my kindness, understanding, and ability to explain difficult topics.

I absolutely think that Andrew will make a great teacher. Knowing him as a great friend and his willing to help others, he will be a great fit for this position. He is very patient and listens very well. He is thorough at his work and gives his 110 percent at what he does. You will not regret hiring him as a teacher.

I love the way Andrew is helping me with my post-secondary papers. He would read through the whole paper with you and make notes and recommendations for you. He always aims for the best for his students. For example, he would ask you to fix any llittle errors you may have missed on your paper. He is kind and very approachable. I like the way he makes time for his students!
