"Education isn’t restricted to what happens within school walls between the hours of 8am and 3pm. It can take place anytime, anyplace, and through any platform."

My concurrent Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education degrees have definitely shaped who I am as a tutor today. While my Science degree in Chemistry and Biology broadened my academic horizons and taught me a wide range of content, it also showed me how challenging learning new concepts can be. This is where my Education degree in Secondary Science and Technology came in. This degree taught me not only how to teach, but also the best ways to learn. Though I have been a tutor for over 7 years, I have also been tutored myself. And my different tutoring experiences (both good and bad) have made me realize what it takes to be a great tutor. My experience with various tutors has taught me the importance of continually checking what your students have understood. By asking questions you provide the student with the opportunity to express what they haven’t understood, thus creating a safe and comfortable environment that is specifically tailored to their needs. Education is one of the few things in life that puts everyone on an equal playing field. No matter what your background is, a person who is passionate and determined to become educated, is a person who can realise their dreams, whatever those dreams may be. Education isn’t restricted to what happens within school walls between the hours of 8am and 3pm. It can take place anytime, anyplace, and through any platform. It can happen individually or in groups; in-person or online. That’s what makes me passionate about education: it’s universality. GradeSlam in one word? Success
