What attracted you to becoming a Peer Tutor?
I’ve always enjoyed teaching and I found myself being pretty good at is so I decided to make a job out of it at BCIT.
How has working as a Tutor helped you?
It has helped me maintain my foundations strong and see different views from students which sometimes helps me develop my own way of thinking more.
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
With the intensity of most of the programs, try to limit your time elsewhere as much as possible since even missing one day could mean you fall behind. Time managing your tasks is key and having the time to actually do that is one big package.
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
Working for a company that specializes in sustainable energy resources. I want to contribute to the growing technology of renewable energy sources. Somewhere like BCHydro is my next step after school.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
I’ve developed a huge passion for electronics as a hobby and therefore I would have to say that I would spend it on working on a personal project. That, or I could finally get a chance to relax and play some games.
