IB Higher Level English and History with Science Bachelor's Degree from UofT

Methodology

My teaching methodology is geared towards the individual or group and their strengths and weaknesses. There are numerous different types of learners, some may be visual while others are proficient at the art of memorization. I have worked with people of all ages, from tutoring children in grade 1 to highschool students. I tend to focus on conceptualization and application in a manner that when tested using similar or tests with greater difficulty, students are able to solve and answer with critical thinking abilities.

Background

Currently I have a HBSc with a specialist in Health and Disease, and further minor in English Literature from University of Toronto. I enjoy teaching, I have personally ran a tutoring program at UofT with the UofT Medical Society Saturday Programme in order to teach highschool students and provide them with career options and guidance from both students and teachers.
