I truly believe you can learn anything, be it how to sing, how to drive, or even how to determine the dimensions of Sally's fence if she wants to maximize the area within! My goal is to help you remember to study and to make it as easy as possible to do so at that time.

Here's some information about me:

- I'm perfectly bilingual (French and English)

- I've successfully tutored math and computer science while at university during my first 2 years of studying electrical engineering.

- I have a 4.2 AGPA and was on the Dean's List

- I have a deep understanding of all highschool math and some university courses.

- I have very flexible hours and can jump on the computer at a moment's notice

- I have an affordable default rate (20$/h) I'm willing to negotiate to find a price that works for you!

- In the first session, I share a list of free tools and study techniques that I've found work very well to facilitate the learning process.

My approach to tutoring math is a four-step process.

1. Through trial and error, we identify the specific gaps in the desired knowledge that are present.

2. We go through the technical and intuitive explanation of the missing link and how it relates to the whole. This is usually where "AHA!!" moments occur :)

3. We practice problem-solving using the new-found knowledge to let it sink in.

4. We celebrate your progress!! :D

5. Repeat :)

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

1. Ask what they want to learn prior to the tutoring session.

2. Refresh and update my knowledge on the topic.

3. Prepare tutoring session

4. Go through the DDNB learning process (trial and error along with explanations and celebration) during the tutoring session

5. Evaluate the results and plan what comes next

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Currently in a bachelor of science in engineering with a major in electrical engineering and the University of New Brunswick. The program is actually one course away from including a math minor because there are so many math courses.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

At the start I will charge 15$/hour, but as I get more reviews I will increase the price to 20$/hour.

How did you get started teaching?

I officially started tutoring at Frontier College a few years ago, but I have been helping my friends learn since I was in middle school.

What types of students have you worked with?

Adults wanting to get their GDE, university students, highschool students, and my cousins :)

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

After months of practice, a woman I tutored successfully got her GED.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There are a lot of math tutors, good and bad ones. You're bound to find a good one, so don't settle.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Optional questions to answer before contacting me:

1. What do I want to learn?

2. Who can help me learn? (friends, family, teacher, classmates, etc.)

3. How much time do I want to spend per day learning without a tutor

4. When do I want to meet with my tutor? How often?

5. What are my current study habits? (Do I use the Pomodoro technique? Do I take breaks? etc)

6. How do I want to celebrate after I get an "AHA!" moment? (Fist pump? saying "Oh Yeah!"?, your choice, but you have to pick one to try :D )
