Master's student teaching accessible math and calculus for junior and senior high school students in Hamilton, ON

Methodology

Throughout my undergraduate degree (BSc (Honours) major in Geology), I took diverse university-level classes including calculus, applied math, chemistry, and geoscience. I found I enjoyed the problem-solving assignments and was even good enough to teach my classmates during lab/tutorial sessions.
I apply much of this knowledge to my current academic pursuit, completing a thesis-based Master of Science in Earth and Environmental Science at McMaster University.

I value simplicity and elegance. Because everyone has a unique style of learning, I aim to integrate simple, creative, and unique styles of teaching for every student in every age group.
- Lessons in math and science are tackled from the ground up - starting with easiest and best-established concepts (pythagorean theorem, basic algebra) and working up to more difficult problems (problem solving questions).

Background

I have many relevant experiences, but my most recent work is as a Teaching Assistant for earth science-related courses at McMaster University's School of Geography & Earth Science.

Other experiences include:
Science camp program design/organizer/camp facilitator (1 summer);
Geoscience outdoor guide (2 summers);
