Honours Student at UVic Tutor for English Reading, Comprehension, and Literature in Victoria, British Columbia

Methodology

I teach in a student-teacher cooperative way, because I truly believe that students excel the most when they are engaged in what they are learning and empowered to make decisions and take initiative. I approach each student as an individual and want to assist them in a way that meets their learning needs. I have experience teaching age groups K-12 so I am comfortable teaching at either primary, secondary, and beginning of University levels.

Background

I am a fourth-year student at UVic, studying English in the Honours Program and graduating this upcoming year. I have always had a passion for English literature and language, and once I graduate I plan to go into the teaching program at UVic to become a secondary school English teacher. I want to help others to become more confident with literature and the English language so that they can enjoy and excel in reading, writing, and achieve their personal, educational, and career goals.

WORK EXPERIENCE


Cloverdale Childcare Centre, Victoria — Child care worker
June 2020- Present

At Cloverdale, I work with children aged 2-11, helping create and lead programming that fosters their social, emotional, and educational growth. The centre runs on a child-focussed Positive Behaviour Support basis, where each child is encouraged to excel and flourish in their own unique abilities and gifts.

Salt Spring Island Community Services, Salt Spring Island — Camp Counsellor
June 2019 - August 2019

I worked as a camp counsellor at a summer day camp for children and youth with special needs or different abilities, such as autism, ADHD, learning disabilities and chromosomal abnormalities. The kids at camp ranged from ages 9-18, and I gained valuable experience in creating programming that was enjoyable and edifying for a wide variety of age groups and ability levels. This position required a lot of flexibility and the ability to adapt to shifting and spontaneous situations, while providing a stable, safe, and structured environment for the campers.

For half a year I volunteered as a teacher’s assistant at a school in Australia. This opportunity was a wonderful experience which taught me many valuable interpersonal and teamwork skills as well as giving me experience working with children.
