I am currently pursuing a degree in Human Biology on a pre-dental path at the University of Toronto. Starting in high school, I began teaching when I became a swim instructor during sophomore year and discovered that I love teaching students. I enjoy seeing my students improve and achieve new goals as I work with them. Moving away from the swimming environment, I started to tutor students for math and science. I quickly realized that I enjoyed teaching in this environment as well, particularly because I enjoy math and science and their relevance to my everyday life. This projected my teaching philosophy by giving students connections to their studies. I believe these connections are the best way to improve your attitude towards learning and understanding of any subject area.
In my spare time, I enjoy swimming, playing basketball, and producing music.

What is your teaching philosophy?
To explore unique connections between students and studies to further understanding of any given area.
What might you do in a typical first session with a student?
I would start with a quick introduction and icebreaker. Then I’d ask questions to understand why the student needs help, what their goals are, and what they would like to cover.
