Private tutor in Toronto, Canada
University of Toronto: MPH McGill University: BSc (Hons, 1st Class), Anatomy and Cell Biology; Minor: Pharmacology
I am a graduate of McGill University. I graduated with First Class Honours in Anatomy and Cell Biology and I also hold a Minor in Pharmacology. I have experience working in labs and I have been tutoring students for over 5 years in a variety of subjects. I am comfortable working with ESL students, and am fluent in Hindi and Tamil. I can also handle conversational French. I have privately tutored students taking physiology and pharmacology courses while at McGill University, and, in my third year of undergrad at McGill, was hired by the university as a Teaching Assistant for the most intensive lab course in the Anatomy department. As a TA, I instructed a group of students for 2-3 hours every week in the cadaver lab, proctored the final lab exam for Systemic Human Anatomy, and marked their papers. Today, I continue to privately tutor students studying high school and university level physiology, biology, anatomy, pharmacology and related disciplines. I love seeing people learn, and encourage my students to be conscious of concepts rather than grades - grades will follow a conceptual understanding of the material. I also provide an intersectional approach to learning, whereby similar concepts are applied across different styles of problems. This is to ensure that students are not 'memorising' ways to solve problems; instead, I teach them to recognise conceptual similarities in their assignments. Passing on my knowledge is something I hope to continue in my current role as the Regional Health Education Coordinator, Ontario at the Canadian AIDS Treatment Information Exchange. I truly enjoy teaching and find it an incredibly rewarding experience. You will be hard pressed to find a more enthusiastic and reliable teacher. I am also capable of teaching people at varying skill levels. Age is also not a problem: it's never too late - or too early! - to learn a subject. 2014-Current: private tutor for various health science courses 2012: Teaching Assistant at Queen's University for HLTH 101: Social Determinants of Health and HLTH 237:Introduction to the Study of Alcohol and Drug Problems 2012: private tutor for high school biology 2011: Teaching Assistant at McGill University, Systemic Anatomy Lab 2010: private tutor for introductory physiology at McGill University 2007: English tutor with Mathmagician Inc 2006-2008: piano instructor at Ontario Academy of Music Final score of 38 in the IB Program

I am pretty well rounded. Some of my hobbies include sketching, reading, and writing. I really enjoy writing poetry with terminology from my anatomy courses - the human body is wonderful inspiration, and I love the inflections in my poetry which arise from such specific vocabulary. I also enjoy working out, cooking, debating, and discussing. I consider myself progressive, amiable, and love to interact with people. My volunteering experiences include: working at anonymous help-lines, patient/resident interaction at hospitals/nursing homes, and teaching children and young adults of all ages.
