What attracted you to becoming a Peer Tutor?
I’ve personally used the peer tutoring services as a first year student and really benefited from it. It also feels really good to give back to the community that’s given me so much!
How has working as a tutor helped you?
It’s helped me restore ideas I’ve learned in class. It’s also taught me to be empathetic to students like me who might just need a little encouragement and guidance.
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Consistency is key. Rather than putting things off until the end or rushing through it, just do a little bit everyday. Learning is about absorbing, not passing a grade (although that is important too).
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
Creating a space where people feel comfortable, pampered, and at ease. A service-based management position!
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
A morning hiking with friends, an afternoon nap with my dog, and a family dinner by the fireplace.
