I strucutre my lessons based on what my student needs. I let them set the tone and the pace for what works best for them. Every student learns in a different way so my lessons should be entirely different from one to the next.
I have a Degree in Biochemistry from Western Ontario and I have been involved with various research projects from Biochemistry to Electrical engineering and Neuroscience. I also have extensive experience in teaching and supporting both adults and children in academic, mental health and sports settings.
My rate is negotiable to the family and individual I am helping. I would encourage whoever interested as me being a tutor to get in touch and we can work out what will work for both of us. I believe that all students deserve access to 1 on 1 tutoring and cost is secondary. If you are in financial stress just let me know.
