I have three years experience working as the principle Teaching Assistant for university-level courses. Here, I proofread and graded midterm and final papers, giving me excellent perspective on exactly what your course lecturers are looking for.
One years experience as a college-prep tutor, specializing in strategic studying for standardized tests (have also sat the SAT and GRE myself).
Apprenticeship completed and four additional years experience as a music teacher at a private studio, wherein I learned to teach piano to children and adults of all skill levels in a hands-on and fun environment.
I love to spend every minute I can outdoors! My passions include hiking, snowboarding, and biking. I also love to read just about anything I can get my hands on, although my favourite book remains Jane Eyre.
