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.
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.

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.
