Meet our Tutors!

Aarti

English as a Subsequent Language/ Literature/ linguistics

Collaborative, interactive and inductive.

I study a little bit everyday, so I don’t have to worry at the end of the semester.

I spend quality time with family and explore nature.

Don’t let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do. Be patient, realistic and productive. Understanding the dynamic of learning is a process. Be forgiving to yourself.

Angela

Education with a focus on Administration and Leadership

Interdisciplinary group or individual tutoring.

Make a layout of the important information, then break complicated problems into manageable ones and exemplify those key points with comprehensible examples.

I treat myself by catching up on both movies and sleep.

Reach out to professors, tutors, or librarians beforehand if you have any questions related to the exam. And begin preparing as soon as possible.

Christine

Psychology and Business

Student-centered discovery approach.

Reviewing each section by explaining it aloud, using examples to understand, and reviewing similarities and differences among concepts.

I balance the many hours spent studying indoors with hiking on some of the great trails here in Niagara.

  • Reach out and make use of different resources when preparing for exams – whether it’s going to a professor’s office hours, doing the end-of-chapter practice questions in your textbook, or studying with a friend/peer tutor.

Grayson

Child and Youth Studies with a minor in Psychology

Interactive, visual, and hands on.

Calming music and coloured cue cards.

I like to unwind by going out for lunch/dinners with my friends, having a nice, relaxing bath, or doing something I love like dancing or photography.

Learn how to pace yourself – exam season can be incredibly taxing, especially if you’re not used to our system. Manage time efficiently and begin studying for a given exam at least a week before, even if it’s just quickly reading over your notes.

Marisha

Applied Linguistics

Interactive, inductive, and relaxed.

Music, food, and reviewing notes.

Watching Grey’s Anatomy, and having a solo dance party.

Study a little bit every week so studying isn’t taxing during exam season. You can also go to office hours of both your professor and TA, and make use of online resources. Attend workshops during exam time to maximize your time. Finally, make friends with both domestic and international students in your program who are doing well. They can help you succeed!

Putri

Education with a specialization in Psychology and English

Learning through dialogue, and empowering students.

Question and answer session with a mirror or friends.

I spend some mental health time watching Law and Order SVU or Friends.

Study as hard as you can, but your physical and mental health come first. It’s admirable to ask for help, because it’s rare to achieve greatness by yourself.
