« Dina and I attended school together in South Africa and remain close friends. I would always remember having study sessions with her before an exam and it would always take off some pressure and make me feel less nervous after. She had a special way of helping me to remember my work by using acronyms or pictures and I would always look forward to studying with her before an exam or test. Although these were just informal study sessions between friends, I still think Dina would make an exceptional teacher. She is a people's person and loves helping others to succeed. She has a natural way of teaching and is generally a lovable person. I always saw a future in teaching for her and would highly recommend her to anyone, not just as a friend, but because of her general love for teaching and well, because she is a natural! »

Dina and I attended school together in South Africa and remain close friends. I would always remember having study sessions with her before an exam and it would always take off some pressure and make me feel less nervous after. She had a special way of helping me to remember my work by using acronyms or pictures and I would always look forward to studying with her before an exam or test.

Dina tutored my son for 2 years,she helped him immensely with his writing skills so that he could successfully complete his grade 11 & 12. This gave him acceptance into the film program at Capilano University.
My son has mild cerebral palsy & is developmetally delayed and Dina worked diligently with him. She is clear, consise and patient. She guided him at every step and gave him achievable goals. I would highly recommend Dina . She is a wonderful tutor .

Dina's interview

QUESTION 01 | 05
When did you develop an interest in your chosen field?
Dina — In my first year at University, I was approached by a prof who asked if I would be willing to tutor a student in the class. That was about 5 years ago now, and since then I have tutored over 40 students.
QUESTION 02 | 05
What makes you passionate about your subject?
Dina — I tutor both English and Math; and I am passionate about both. What makes me passionate about these subjects is their transferable and practical nature.
QUESTION 03 | 05
What do you like about tutoring? What makes you a "Superprof"?
Dina — As a current University student in my last year, I know what it is like to struggle and or not understand a concept. Often this is where students lose confidence or motivation academically. I have been there, and I never shy away from consulting another tutor if there is an area in my studies that I am struggling with. Whether it is for a couple sessions or an on-going, academic support is incredibly beneficial. My ultimate goal is to equip students with the knowledge and skills needed to build confidence and ensure success.
QUESTION 04 | 05
Do you have any role models; a teacher that inspired you?
Dina — One of my biggest teacher role models is my grade 5 teacher. She embodied kindness and a strong desire to share her knowledge. However, she also expected that students took her class seriously and respected their academic studies.
QUESTION 05 | 05
What are your keys to success?
Dina — My key to student success is building confidence through organization, practice, and consistency.
