Hello! My name is Adriena and I am a 4th year Biology Major & Chemistry Minor student. I will be tutoring BIOL 2020, BIOL 2021, and CHEM 2020. If you have any questions pertaining to any of these courses, I would love to answer them. Sometimes there can be an overload of information that seems impossible to remember and, therefore, it’s always helpful to take a step back. Some of the things I do to help relax me are playing my flute or going to the gym. A study tip that can be helpful is to try and notice any patterns in the material. We often just focus on how much there is to learn rather than noticing that its just the same concept in the past chapter but being applied to a different situation. Have a great year and I look forward to seeing you at LSB.
Courses: BIOL 2020, BIOL 2021, and CHEM 2020
Hello, my name is Krstina and I currently in my third year honours biology program. The courses that I'm going to be tutoring are MATH 1013, BIOL 2020/2021. One tip that I like to give to students is to keep calm and try your best even when things get tough. If possible, review the material after lecture as that will help you process what you covered in class and hopefully make it less overwhelming. One more important thing, do lots of practice for Math. The more questions you expose yourself to, the better you will be at solving mathematical problems. Looking forward to work with you!

Hello! This is Nader, a 4th year Biophysics major. I will do my best to help with whatever question you may have in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry and Biology courses. I feel that when studying, the material may sometimes seem very tedious or otherwise very challenging which may easily lead to procrastination and frustration. It is at those instances that it is most important that one takes a step back to calm down and start reading between the lines and looking for what personally interests them in the subject. By relating the study material to their end goals and reminding themselves that all this is contributing to their personal success, what was once a mountain may become a simple speed bump, or even like an enjoyable roller coaster!
Courses: BIOL 1000/1001/2020/2040, MATH 1013/1014/1505/1025/1131, PHYS 1XXX, EECS 1541
Hi everyone! My name is Nikoo and it is my third year at YorkU. I am tutoring MATH 1013/1014, PHYS 1420, CHEM 1000/1001/2020/2021 this year. My quick study tip is to do a pre-study each week for your courses, even 10 minutes will do a lot. This way your brain will be better prepared to integrate your old knowledge of the subject with the new material. The brain processes them on its own without asking for your full attention, basically it is a free service. So why not using it?! I look forward seeing you.
Courses: CHEM 1000/1001, CHEM 2020, MATH 1013/1014, PHYS 1420

Feel free to stop by with questions or even just to strengthen your understanding of concepts!

Hello everyone, my name is Edwar and I am a second year Biology student. I will be tutoring some of your first year courses. Feel free to drop by LSB and ask as many questions as you want. I will be more than happy to help clarify concepts you might struggle with. My advice for all first year students out there is not to procrastinate and to keep up with the materials. First year at university might be a bit challenging as it is a transition from high school, but if you stay focused and manage your time you will be surprised how well you will perform. One more tip: try to right down all the assignments and test/exams due dates on your notebook, so that you stay on top of your work and don’t miss crucial deadlines. Good Luck 😉

Hello, my name is Farzam and I am very excited to be given the opportunity to be one of the Peer Tutors for first year courses. A lot of times in studying we get stuck on some materials and no matter what we do we just can’t figure out what we are doing wrong. The best solution is always seeking out help from the students who have been able to do great on the subject matter and that’s why we peer tutors can help you achieve great academic results. A tip I would give to anyone who wants to get good results is that see studying just like working out. If you want to achieve great results you need a good and well-rounded plan! It might be hard at first but once you learn to master it, you will be performing great. Best of lucks!
