Name: Levi DeVries
Program: Mechanical Engineering
What attracted you to becoming a Peer tutor?
I enjoy teaching things to people. I find it very satisfying to be able to explain a difficult concept in such a way that someone who was having trouble is now able to understand it.
How has tutoring helped you?
Tutoring others has helped reinforce concepts that I had learned earlier on in my degree but I had begun to forget. Additionally, the act of teaching a concept to someone else helps me increase my own level of understanding in that subject.
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Be very intentional about writing neatly and clearly organizing your work (especially when you are learning something new!).
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
I would like to design heavy machinery and mobile equipment.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
