About Jennifer Selena Mackay

1. Please describe yourself in a few sentences.

I am a Masters Student in Anthropology with a BA in Psychology. My degree included several courses on learning, and strategies to facilitate it. I have always had a passion for teaching and was involved with peer tutoring throughout my school career. I have had experience tutoring English, Math, French, and several of the humanities courses for Junior, Senior, and adult students. I have also worked as a teaching assistant for the past year at the university level.

2. What is your tutoring approach? Give us your history working with students

I believe tutoring should be tailored to each individual student's learning style to accentuate their strengths and assist in the development of challenging areas. Alternative learning strategies can help students to learn difficult concepts and help to boost confidence. I have found that once students are confident in their ability to learn, the learning increases exponentially. This applies both to NT students and to those with exceptionalness. My experience has included students with learning challenges such as diagnosed learning disabilities like Dyslexia, learning delays, and those on the Autism spectrum.

3. How long have you been a tutor for? What do you most enjoy about it?

I have over 4 years working experience as a tutor. In that time I have met many students with different challenges. All of them were able to learn through developing a proper strategy for them. My favourite moment when teaching a student is when they realize that they can apply their learned skills in other areas of their life. One of these moments happened when one of my students realized that the phonics work we were doing in our sessions could be applied to other words and was able to read an article in the newspaper.
