Dear Potential Students,
Having spent most of my life as a student, I know how important a good teacher or tutor can be. Throughout my years at McGill University, I tutored subjects ranging from statistics to Spanish language to microeconomics and more. By the time I graduated from McGill, I'd tutored more than 15 students in five different subjects (including the three mentioned above, development economics, and macroeconomics). Despite being happy to tutor other subjects, I focused on tutoring economic subjects at McGill not because it was my major, but because my GPA qualified me to be certified by the McGill Economics Undergraduate Society as an economics tutor.
In addition to tutoring peers at McGill, I also have experience in language and math tutoring for children and adolescents. I have taught Spanish and Hebrew to small groups of 10-12 year olds, and am now tutoring a middle schooler in algebra. Having had a close relationship with a brother who is now thirteen years of age, I've always enjoyed teaching and connecting with younger children. I also have studied Mandarin and Dutch, and am comfortable teaching these two languages to beginners.
Since different students have different needs, I am very flexible in my teaching styles. In the past, I have prepared a few practice problems/worksheets for my students to work on before the session. This way, once we get started, I can immediately identify which aspects of the subject they are having trouble with. This method has increased the efficiency of my tutoring sessions and leaves the students with the tools to answer similar problems without the troubles they had before the tutoring.
Right now, I work as a data analyst at a prominent health and human services agency. Although I have a full-time job, I continue to tutor because of my love of working with students and making a difference in their education.
Talk to you soon!
