What attracted you to becoming a Peer tutor?
I wanted to give back to the BCIT community. Getting paid to give back is even better.
How has tutoring helped you?
Working as a Writing Centre tutor has helped me improve my own writing skills. Be concise! Be specific!
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Don’t stress it. That may sound glib, but I’m serious. Stress can make you sick. You’re too busy to be sick.
Invest time in meditation and exercise so you don’t miss out on your education. Take care of yourself.
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
I’d love to work in invasive species management or habitat restoration. Something involving fish, wildlife, and/or recreation. I have many dream jobs, and most of them involve spending my day in the woods.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
In the woods! Okay, realistically half in the woods adventuring and half on the couch with a novel.
