Master's Student in Edmonton, experienced in tutoring ALL subjects (math, sciences, english, etc.)

Methodology

My primary concern with students is treating them as my peers, not my inferiors. Any student, irrespective of their current grades and/or perceived talents, has the ability to improve. The best way to achieve this improvement is through collaboration. More than teaching at students, I teach with them.

Background

I am a graduate of the Yale Bioethics Program with a Bachelor's in Health Science from the University of Calgary, currently pursuing a Master's in Philosophy at the University of Alberta. I have also worked for 7+ years as a tutor and director of a children's day camp, both of which have taught me effective ways of working with students.

WORK EXPERIENCE

University of Alberta 2019
Teaching Assistant – September-December 2019
I was responsible for a group of 27 students in an introductory philosophy course on ethics. My duties included marking weekly reading questions, grading two ~1500 word papers for each of my students, grading a final written exam, and leading a 50 minute seminar every Friday on the topics that were covered in lecture during the week.

Tutoring & Babysitting 2009-Present
I have independently tutored and babysat since I was 12. I have tutored students in several subjects including: Math, Biology, Physics, Chemistry, Calculus, English, and Music Theory. All of my students are between the ages of 12 and 19. I also obtained my Red Cross Babysitter Certification at age 11, and have worked as a babysitter for several families with children ranging from infancy to 12 years old.

YMCA, Camp Riveredge, Calgary 2012, 2013, 2015-2018
Assistant Director – April-August 2017 & 2018
I was responsible for coordinating all of the schedules and programs at a YMCA outdoor day camp. This included training and managing a staff team of 23 counsellors alongside my co-director. Camp participants range from 6-16 years of age with an average of 180 participants on site per day. Programs included: archery, low-ropes, obstacle courses, fire building, bouldering, bicycling, river rafting, and overnight “camping” in tipis. Daily activities also included managing participant and/or parent difficulties, organising camp-wide activities for staff and participants, and site maintenance. I also worked closely with my superiors to find more effective strategies for future camp seasons with a heavy focus on creating a culturally safe space and understanding for our Indigenous program. I plan to continue this work in the coming spring-summer session.
Camp Counsellor – August 2015, July-August 2016
I was responsible for planning and supervising daily activities for groups of 6-13 year olds. All activities were outdoors and included archery, bouldering, low ropes, crafts, water games, group songs, and food drives through a neighbouring community. Groups ranged between 6 and 10 children at a time.
Volunteer Counsellor in Training – July-August 2012, May-August 2013
I was responsible for assisting camp counsellors and supervising children’s daily activities. Activities included instructing archery, low ropes, crafts, water games, cooking, and one night of overnight supervision, primarily for children ages 6-8.

YMCA, Eau Claire, Calgary 2014
Camp Counsellor – July-August 2014
I was responsible for planning and supervising the daily activities of 6-9 year olds throughout the summer. Activities included out-trips to nearby parks and gardens in downtown Calgary along with field trips in various parts of the city on a weekly basis. I managed groups ranging from 10 to 30 children (with the assistance of co-counsellors). Other frequent activities included leading group songs, supervising swimming lessons, free swim time, crafts, and sports such as basketball or soccer.
