As a graduate student, I spend a significant amount of my time as a teaching assistant. My main responsibilities outside of the classroom include offering students assistance and support understanding reading material and turning their ideas into great essays. I also have a lot of experience privately tutoring students -- high school, college and university -- in subjects ranging from English to History to World Issues. If you have an essay to write in a non-science subject, I'm excited to help you discover your great idea and help you turn it into an A+ paper.
Lecturer, Queen's University
September 2014-December 2014
I was recently offered a Teaching Fellowship for the Fall 2014 semester at Queen's University. This means I will be responsible for the running of my own course which will be offered to undergraduate students with an English major or minor. I am excited for this opportunity to continue building dynamic relationships with students with diverse ideas, educational backgrounds and individual needs.

As part of a dynamic team of teachers, my responsibilities include: planning and leading weekly tutorials, one-on-one counseling and mentoring, marking essays and providing ongoing feedback on students’ performance, guest lecturing.

As a teaching assistant at Ryerson, I was challenged to meet the needs of a group of students with a wide-range of educational backgrounds, all at different stages in their lives and coming with a unique set of skills and diverse needs. Beyond leading two weekly tutorials, my main responsibility was meeting with these students to ensure the goals they set for themselves were met, and that their ideas came through in their writing and in their examinations.
