BEng, MSc candidate, Mechanical Engineering, Carleton University
Hi there! I am a Mechanical Engineer who graduated from the University of Brasilia, Brazil. Currently, I am doing my Master’s at Carleton University, also in Mechanical Engineering, and I am really excited to be here in Canada! I've been tutoring students since 2014 and I can say that I am passionate about that work, because there is nothing better than talking to someone about a topic that you like, right? Some of my hobbies are reading, playing video games and guitar, and also doing sports like swimming or running. I can't wait to get started with you!
BHSc, MD candidate, University of Ottawa
My name is Mac White and I would love to have the opportunity to teach you French! My speciality is French as a second language. I was the first student in the Grand Erie District School Board to go from Core French to French Immersion, winning various French awards in affiliation with my high school. I founded a French discussion group for adults at the Brantford Public Library and I also worked closely with Canadian Parents for French teaching young children how to read and write in the language of Molière. I was subsequently hired by the library as a French tutor for elementary students and, privately, I taught French at both a high school and university level. I completed my postsecondary education at the University of Ottawa in Health Sciences en français and took several sociolingusitic and French grammar courses. I am currently completing my final year of medicine in the French cohort at the University of Ottawa and I am the representative for Francophone Affairs MD2021. I have studied French at the Cégep in Jonquière and lived in the Saguenay region for an entire summer. I have also studied French in Nice, France. I look forward to working with you!
BSc, MSc, PhD candidate, Chemistry, University of Ottawa
I am a PhD candidate at the University of Ottawa and my research focus is in organic synthesis. Specifically, I synthesize small molecules that will facilitate in preventing ice damage during the cryopreservation of different cell types. When I’m not in the lab, I take pride in helping students excel in general chemistry, organic chemistry, and biochemistry courses, which I have been doing for the past 7-8 years. I am also an Organic Chemistry and General Chemistry Instructor for The Princeton Review where I help prepare students to write the chemistry section of the MCAT. I’m excited to continue to share my knowledge with the clients of G2G Tutors in the future.
BSc, MSc, PhD candidate, Neuroscience, University of Ottawa
My current work as PhD student combines biological engineering and regenerative medicine. In addition, I work as a graduate mentor in the Student Academic Success Services (SASS). During my academic journey, I’ve had the chance to supervise, train, and mentor multiple undergraduate and junior graduate students in different majors. I take great pleasure in finding creative methods to deliver information to aid students in their studies. In addition, I strive to anchor different subjects within the real job market so that students can understand the bigger purpose behind their education, specifically in biology and chemistry. Finally, I aim to help my students become scientists who know how to both ask and tackle different challenging questions.
BSc, MSc, PhD candidate, Physics, University of Ottawa
I wrote my Bachelor's and Master's thesis in physics at the University of Aarhus in Denmark before I moved to Canada to pursue my Ph.D. in fiber optics sensors. On top of my passion for research, I am a strong believer in nurturing the same interest in the next generation of science students. Feel free to contact me if, apart from grasping math and physics, you to want to learn to problem-solve systematically and independently.
BA French and Political Science, MA Global Governance, JD candidate, University of Ottawa
Hello! I am currently a first-year J.D. candidate in the French Common Law Program at the University of Ottawa. I have always had a passion for tutoring! Since 2013, I have tutored primarily English and French at all levels, including elementary, secondary, university, and ESL adult learners. I have also worked with children and teens with learning disorders. Further, I volunteered as a Writing Center tutor during my third and fourth year at Western. Additionally, I have experience with the DELF exam, both as a student and a tutor. I have helped numerous students prepare for A1, A2, B1, B2, and C1 exams. My experience as a tutor, combined with my background as a former emergency supply teacher, has made me very familiar with the elementary and secondary school curriculum in Ontario. Whether you need help in English or in French, I look forward to working one-on-one with you to help you achieve your academic goals!
BEng, MSc, PhD candidate, Biomedical Engineering, University of Ottawa
Hello! I am currently a PhD student at the University of Ottawa. Prior to moving to Canada, I completed my Msc and BEng in Civil Engineering in Brazil. During my studies, I also had the opportunity to study for one year in Scotland at Heriot-Watt University. My passion for science and diversified experience at various universities have allowed me to explore several different areas of engineering.
My PhD studies in Biomedical Engineering combine many concepts of mathematics and physics with knowledge of human kinematics. My research focuses on the application of these concepts to better understand the interface of the human body and prosthetics sockets to understand how we can make better prostheses.
Since high school, I have been actively helping other
students with mathematics and physics, and I have had the opportunity to gain tutoring experience. I am currently working at the University of Ottawa as a Teaching Assistant (TA), where I hold tutorials for Mechanical Engineering courses. I enjoy helping students progress in their courses and I try to tailor the classes to their needs. I am looking forward to meeting students and helping them reach their goals and ambitions!
Honours Specialization BA in French Studies and Minor in Spanish
Bachelor of Education in French as a Second Language, Primary/Junior
MEd with concentration of Societies, Languages, and Cultures
Languages are so intricate and fascinating! While studying French and Spanish during my undergrad, I took a lot of linguistics courses and I learned how languages are influenced by culture, people, and how they are used. I want to help shape young minds through inquisitive attitudes, critical thinking and self-actualisation, all the while maintaining a jovial spirit and a kind heart.
BSc, MSc candidate, Microbiology and Immunology, University of Ottawa
I received my BSc at Queen's University studying Health Sciences with a specialization in cancer research and am now an MSc candidate studying cancer therapeutics at the Ottawa Hospital Research Institute. I was lucky to have a passion and curiosity for education from a young age. A goal of mine is to be able to spark this within younger students, hopefully setting many more on the path towards a better education and a better future. I have been fortunate to have multiple mentorship opportunities and tutoring experiences that have started this goal, but I hope to reach more young minds with G2G Tutors. I enjoy deciphering what learning method a student needs to excel, whether that is talking through questions, building picture guides, endless practice problems, or grounding the topic to apply real-world scenarios... whatever works to bring progress!
