What attracted you to becoming a Peer tutor?
I wanted to help my fellow students succeed and build more relationships during my time at BCIT.
The school is known for it’s difficulty and I think it is important for many of the newer students to learn efficient study skills if they wish to succeed here.
How has tutoring helped you?
I never utilized the tutoring services when I was a first year student. However, my time as a tutor has helped me make more friends and understand that I can be a big part of a student’s success. It also helps me review previous material that I may have forgotten!
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Push and keep at it! Transitioning to school life at BCIT is very difficult, but it’ll definitely be worth it in the end!
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
Well there are so, so, sooo many options out there, but I would love a job that requires either programming (which I love doing) or traveling! Something that could include both would be amazing.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
Studying, exercising, and a good night out with friends!
