Tutoring experience

I have direct tutoring experience as the leader of the student tutoring program at Glendowie College in 2016. I also have experience in other areas of student support as a prefect and peer support leader during my final year of high school. In the peer support role I assisted year nine students with the transition to high school by providing guidance and support for all aspects of school life. As well as the tutoring program, my role as academic prefect involved creating a school wide writing competition and organizing the annual Math Week.
I also have a lot of experience with younger children, having worked at an OSCAR program for 4 years. Among other things, this job required for me to assist children up to 13 years old with homework.
