Tutor Information


*FREE HALF-HOUR SESSION FOR ANY NEW STUDENTS* Hello! Welcome to my profile. I am a born and bred Newfoundlander living and working in Ottawa. I graduated from the Memorial University of Newfoundland last year with a Bachelor's in Process Engineering and plan to pursue my Master's in the near future. My friends and colleagues describe me as a passionate, easy-going and patient professional. I started tutoring in high school, helping middle school students with math and science. Since then, I have expanded to high school and university-level math, physics, chemistry, and engineering. Over the past few years, I have helped prepare many high-school and new university students for post-secondary. I know how difficult this change can be, and do my best to help make it as easy and stress-free as possible. It is my commitment to not only teach the presented course material but to also encourage the application of knowledge through strong problem-solving skills. Please feel free to reach out if you think I would be a good match for your tutoring needs! I work a 9-5 job, but I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible! Have a great day!
