Whether I am teaching History, Anthropology, or how to effectively and efficiently structure an Essay, my approach is based on developing critical thinking skills just as much as it is on memorization or proper spelling and grammar. Rather than just simply telling my students how they should structure an argument, or what facts they should remember, I work to develop their ability to analyze why they are learning what they are learning, or why a particular structure of argument works, so that they can be more independent and aware of their habits and skills in their future academic careers.
Specifically my method ranges from strategies like memory games and flash cards to remember specific facts/dates/etc. to discussions and explanations of particular historical events or trends, or particular academic ideas regarding History or Anthropology. For essay and assignment writing, I provide step-by-step analysis and critique of work, and give suggestions and strategies on how to improve in the future.
I am a recent University of Toronto Graduate with Majors in History and Anthropology, and I have a passion for teaching all things History and Social Sciences related! I have over 6 years volunteer experience working with youth from late elementary to high school age, as well as work experience as a music teacher, and I am comfortable teaching any age/grade/experience level. I also provide more general Essay Writing and critical thinking instruction, skills that are essential in any academic field.

He taught me how to play and understand the guitar in ways I couldn't find online in places like youtube and so on. Also, his style of teaching helped me find ways to get through my frustrations of learning it haha. I would definitely recommend!
