About Tazim Najarali
1. Please describe yourself in a few sentences.
I am currently entering my last year of the 5 year Concurrent Education double-degree Program at the University of Toronto towards becoming an intermediate biology and chemistry teacher. Through majoring in biology and biochemistry, I have gained extensive knowledge and applications from a wide range of fields in biology and chemistry and various teaching skill methods.
2. What is your tutoring approach? Give us your history working with students
My internship teaching chemistry was a rewarding experience that involved adopting various teaching practices and delivering independent lessons to grade 9, 11, and 12 students. I was able to incorporate a variety of teaching and learning strategies in my lessons to ensure students’ engagement and understanding of the scientific concepts. I also provided one-on-one assistance to those students who needed extra help outside of class hours. I encourage students to practice challenging questions and teach them skills to solve them by following a step-by-step process with reflection. My priority will always be to assist in the best manner possible and look into solutions that will be most effective on the student’s application to learn.
3. How long have you been a tutor for? What do you most enjoy about it?
I have been tutoring for approximately 2 years teaching at various schools as part of my Teacher Training Program at the University of Toronto. I also worked as a science club facilitator where learning science is made fun by encouraging students to reflect and apply scientific concepts through the use of hands-on experiments and activities. I enjoy seeing the students strive and progress towards higher learning and success.
