Hello potential pupils! My name is Brett, I'm a 21 year old student having just recently finished my third year of studies at University of Calgary, majoring in Astrophysics. Courses I've taken since I've began my studies at UofC include calculus, linear algebra, classical mechanics, modern physics, optics, computer science and philosophy. I've always had a good ability to work with numbers, and a profound fascination for the mysteries of the universe! In my first few years of university, I began tutoring my younger brother and his friends who were now in high school. Subjects I was able to provide the most help with included math, physics, L.A and social studies. In some cases, I was able to bring test scores from 50%-60%, all the way up to 80%-90%! Seeing someone succeed from the information I was able to pass on to them is an incredible feeling! In addition to tutoring my younger brother and his friends in university, I have also participated as the assistant head coach and head defensive coach of the Bow Valley Midget (15-17 year olds) division 1 hockey team for the past two years. Working with this age group helped me develop a good understanding of how to connect with youth. In addition to coaching, I myself have participated in hockey, baseball, and lacrosse all at competitive levels during my childhood. Every individual learns differently. An example that might help one person understand something, might not necessarily work for another. I believe that a large portion of the success I have created in those that I have tutored is due to my ability to cater to the individuals learning methods. The more I work with an individual, the more I get to understand how they learn. By showing how a single problem can be looked at in a variety of ways, there will always be a perspective that makes sense to the student. It just might not be the perspective they are getting taught in school!
