What attracted you to becoming a Peer tutor?
It was recommended to me by my COMM instructor, who’s opinion I really respect so I was interested right away. I quickly realized how great the entire team is at the Learning Commons and that made me even more excited to be a part of the team!
How has tutoring helped you?
Being a part of the tutoring team has given me a lot more exposure to other programs within BCIT. I get to practice critical thinking way more often, and it has allowed me to feel more involved in the BCIT community.
If you could give one piece of advice to a BCIT student what would it be?
Don’t try and do everything on your own. Get help if you need it, whether it be instructors, classmates, or a counselor. BCIT programs can be intense and it’s a lot harder if you feel you are doing everything on your own.
Do you have any successful online studying tips to share?
Make sure you are using reputable sources. Anything that ends in .edu is generally a safe bet.
What would your dream job be when you leave BCIT?
My (realistic) dream job is to work in sales for a print company. My (unrealistic) dream job is to run a wiener dog farm.
If you had a free day, how would you spend it?
I don’t like being too busy in my free time to give my brain a rest, any free days I do have I like cooking and going for walks on the seawall with my boyfriend.
