« I've known Ryan for three years. I hired him as my university department's work studies student. I've taught Ryan several times and I've worked with him on his directed studies project. Ryan is a very strong student and he is very reliable. He has a solid foundation in sociology and social work, he has practical experience in both fields and would make an excellent tutor. »

Masters student offers academic tutoring in political science, sociology, anthropology, and psychology in Calgary.

Methodology

My teaching, or tutoring methods, will be based on what works best for the student, or the individual I am working with. I feel it is too early to say before I have met the individual what my methods would be. Everyone is different and we will work together to find out how they learn most effectively.

Background

I work professionally as a personal support worker or shelter worker while taking a break from working on my masters degree. I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree majoring in sociology, my masters degree is in criminology. I excelled in all of my courses and I was nominated for valedictorian, I received the Student Ambassador Award, I was the work-study student for two years, and I made the Dean's List.
