What attracted you to becoming a Peer Tutor?
I used peer tutoring services for academic and emotional support as a first year student and found it super useful and wanted to give the same support to others as best I can. It’s also a good way to keep foundational info fresh in my mind.
How has working as a tutor helped you?
Keeps first year info fresh in my mind/memory. Teaches me new learning and study strategies which I can share with others and use in my own learning. Improves my communication skills and keeps me social. :o)
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
There are so many resources available for students at BCIT – use them as much as you can. Eg. Counseling – FREE!, student advocates, peer tutoring, and your own classmates. Reaching out will make your own path to success easier. :o)
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
Working full time as a nuclear med and MRI technologist.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
Sleep in, then go out for brunch with friends. Spend the afternoon outdoors. Eg. go for a hike, bike around the seawall, go kayaking. Finish the day with board games and relaxing at home.
