Midwifery Student gives social science/essay writing/and biology assistance to students in Toronto

Methodology

I like to teach from a methodology that encourages students to find something they find exciting about what they are learning and expand from there. Mastering concepts, applying to real-life scenarios and developing the confidence to try new things in education.

Background

I am a midwifery student with a Masters in Child and Youth Care, a counselor for women and children leaving violence, and have a BA in Social Justice and Peace Studies. I have a passion for combining a love of health care with an understanding of the material and social sciences.
