Honours student in Psychology gives lessons to first and second year students

Methodology

Having tutored peers for the last 5 years, I understand that learning and study methods vary from person to person. I am very flexible in how I help others and I adapt my teaching method to their needs. I also inform my methods with findings in cognitive psychology, which ultimately help students make stronger semantic links between concepts, have a deeper understanding of material and retain information.

Having a learning disability myself and pursuing a career in a competitive field, I hope to help other students with a learning disability to understand themselves and how their brain functions in order for them to accomplish their potential. Learning disabilities can make higher education more tiring and straining, but with the right support and tools, it should in no way affect your ability to achieve your goals.

Background

I am a third year undergraduate honours student in psychology at UBC who is passionnate about my area of study and would love to help students or aspiring psychology students to understand the field. I have experience working at the Early Developmental Research Group at UBC, and am currently working on my own research project in giftedness and twice exceptionality.
