Hi there! I am an Honours Psychology student planning to eventually complete my PhD in Clinical Psychology. I have five years’ experience tutoring in subjects ranging from elementary reading comprehension to university chemistry. My very first priority is to make sure that students look forward to tutoring and truly benefit from it. I always try my best to make sure students feel they can ask any question and finish sessions feeling confident about their academic abilities.
Hi there! I’m Ben and I recently obtained my Master of Applied Science at Dalhousie University in the Renewable Energy Storage Laboratory. I have previously completed a Bachelor of Engineering at Dalhousie in Mechanical Engineering. I’ve been tutoring for seven years, and I also have experience as a marker and a teaching assistant. I can tutor high school and university mathematics and physics as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd year Engineering core courses, and the 4th year core courses plus the electives of Aerodynamics, Advanced Controls, Renewable Energy, and Nuclear Power Engineering.
Most of my experience is in teaching mathematics and physics, and I specialize in making abstract math more concrete and approachable. I am also happy to offer engineering students career advice.
Hi, my name is Angela. I am finishing my studies in Medical Sciences with a minor in French at Dalhousie University. I am a TA in Genetics and Microbiology and have tutored high school and university students in various subjects for more than four years. I am able to help you with university level biology, physiology, organic chemistry, essay writing, and scientific reports as well as high school core sciences. I am experienced in working with students from various backgrounds, including learners who wish to increase their English proficiency and adults who take college courses to be successful in their careers. I look forward to meeting you!
Hello there! I'm Justin and I graduated from Dalhousie University with a PhD in chemistry. I have worked as a teaching assistant with the department of chemistry for about 5 years and am currently working as a scientific consultant. Applying knowledge to solve problems is important to me, even if there is more than one way to do it. If you are stuck with chemistry, math, or statistics, I can certainly help you learn it better!
Hello! My name is Isobel and I’m a recent graduate of Mechanical Engineering from McGill University. I just started my Masters of Applied Science in Environmental Engineering at Dalhousie in the Fall of 2018. My past experience as a tutor ranges across all age groups, from elementary STEM classes, to early year university math, physics, and engineering courses.
I’m drawn to tutoring because I love to help others through their challenges and I’ve always had an interest in academia – what better way to combine these traits than tutoring! Furthermore, seeing other people’s success brings me a lot of joy, even more so when I can be involved in the process.
As a tutor and a woman in engineering, I hope to set a positive role model for younger STEM students and help them realize that a bit of adversity will only make you stronger in the long run!
Ascension helped me with first year calculus and I would definitely recommend them! I met with Ben and he was very approachable and obviously knew what he was doing!
Justin is a great tutor! He helped and taught me a lot. He was also flexible with his timing; when I needed more time he would cancel other plans. Also, I got 8 of 10 on my last assignment and it was the second highest mark in the class. Thank you so much, Justin!
My chemistry tutor, Angela, was fantastic! She was very well informed on whatever the topic we were going through consisted of. I was skeptical to what a tutor could actually do at first but Angela completely changed that. I didn't realize just how much I didn't actually know. I knew the how of chemistry (mostly), but I didn't know the why... Why things happened the way they did. She really helped clarify theory for me.
