Tutoring

I tutor a variety of subjects, mostly at the undergraduate and graduate level, and occasionally tutor high school students.

note

I'm quite comfortable teaching remotely, and typically use my iPad stylus for writing and drawing diagrams and figures through screen sharing.

Experience:

I have over 6 years of tutoring experience, and I have PhD in psychology. I was a Course Director teaching a 3rd year undergraduate Animal Behaviour, and was a T.A. for several years for a variety of courses including Advanced Research Methods (Undergrad thesis course), Intro Psych, Evolutionary Psych. I also won the Council of Canadian Departments of Psychology Teaching Assistantship Award. I also have lots of experience teaching in other fields - I was the director of a beginner-focused snowboard school for over 10 years.

I have extensive experience working with individuals with learning disabilities and other special needs including ESL. Please let me know if you have any such needs.

Policies:

  • Due to past problems, for the first few sessions I only accept pre-payment in cash or through eTransfer before the start of the lesson.
  • Cancellations: If you cancel within 24 hours of a lesson I charge a $20 fee.
  • It helps me prepare if you tell me which topics you’d like to cover 24h in advance.
  • I do my best to help out if you need last-minute “crash course” sessions. However, sometimes I am busy. You’ll also learn better if you set up weekly sessions throughout the semester.
