Psychology graduate offering experienced tutoring for students (all ages) in Montreal area

Methodology

I tailor my teaching approach to the student's needs. Not everybody learns the same way, and people are just different at a basic level; they each have their own personality, motivations, and passions--so I enjoy playing into that and using it to the student's advantage. What I keep consistent across my clients is one goal: Making sure that they understand what they are being taught. Simple memorisation does not suffice, because it does not actually help people learn. I feel like students would enjoy their courses more if they understood the material; so having my students truly understand whatever it is they need help with is paramount. A tutor should not give services so the client can merely pass for the time being; a good tutor puts effort into ensuring that their client is actually gaining something substantial (and long-term) from the interaction. As such, I'm most satisfied when my clients leave having attained a useful and desirable skill--and it's especially rewarding when they leave happy.

Background

I hold a Bachelor's degree in Honours Psychology and Linguistics, as well as a DEC in Criminology. I have been working in a psychology research laboratory for over two years, and have five years of previous experience with being both a personal tutor and an employee of my college Writing Centre. The subjects I have tutored range from high-school-level maths to college-level neuroscience, and I have tutored students aged 10 and up. I've also worked in customer service, as well as at an arts camp for children aged 5-17. The jobs I love doing tend to be more social in nature, where I can interact with and teach people in a way that I am passionate about.
