Students are here to learn, and I believe all students are capable of not only being competent learners, but excited learners.

We sometimes need to make fun of the content, the dryness of it, and work on learning approaches that helps our brain learn the material more quickly and effectively. Humour can help a lot of people in this --- a bad joke here, a terrible pun there, and all of a sudden the student is much more focused on course material in hopes it will stop me! But it really is not about making learning fun, it is about making the experience human, and not trying to do something that is devoid of our own experiences and ways of accomplishes things. Finding energy when you have none, setting up schedule times to study, and removing distractions when you are working is what you want to be doing, but you want to do it your way.

Whether in tutoring or coaching, finding the path the works for every student is always my goal, and I am happy to be wrong if a better option is found for learning. And in the end I want everyone one of my students to be excited learners, to want them to expand their knowledge and enjoy the process of learning itself along the way to passing their courses!

Charanjit Singh

Picture of Charanjit SinghThe one thing I enjoy more than Accounting and Stats is helping others understand the course material more fully. I am a recent grad from the Business Administration program and moved right into being a staff tutor. I primarily tutor in Business Admin, Applied Accounting and BIT.

My favorite thing about tutoring occurs in my Math and Accounting workshops – when I see a student or a group of students work together to find their own way to the solution. Being a recent graduate, I try to relate with the difficulties students face, and provide them with the guidance needed to move forward and succeed in achieving their goals. I encourage our students to study in small groups when it comes to solving complex problems because through team-work students find different ways in finding the solution.

My interests are varied and include travelling, sports and language learning.

Michael Kozakewich

Picture of Michael Kozakewich

Since 2011, Michael has been tutoring the Business IT program and other computer-related areas at the Exchange District Campus. He graduated from River College Polytechnic in 2007 as a Computer Programmer and Analyst.

He’s passionate about how information systems work: “I spend a lot of time exploring computers and their software. The ways in which we design user experiences in modern operating systems are finally making computing accessible to everyone. Thinking carefully about these systems is the key to making them relatable and easy to work with.” He likes to promote humane coding and thoughtful design when he engages students with their coursework.

Michael’s favourite thing about tutoring is that he can explore the beauty and expressiveness of all the different programming languages. Even though they look similar on the surface, each language has its own inner workings and they each excel at different tasks. There are often too many details to distinguish in a single semester, so the deeper complexity is glossed over during regular study. When needed, he’ll draw up sample material to explain weird concepts found in students’ courses.
