What attracted you to becoming a Peer tutor?
Being able to contribute to the academic success of those around me brings me great joy. Plus it’s a great resume item.
How has tutoring helped you?
Teaching others’ in the classes I took last year has helped to reinforce the concepts I’ve already learned and has made me aware of any gaps in my knowledge.
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Get consistent sleep and exercise and make time in your schedule to have some fun.
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
Being self-employed, doing freelance/contract based engineering work. I can’t stand the idea of being constrained to working hours someone else sets for me for the rest of my life.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
In the mountains.
We wish Clark all the best in pursuing his dream job!
