Ralph R.

Ralph is completing Bachelors in Computer Engineering at the University of Waterloo. He currently holds an International Baccalaureate High School diploma.

Ralph tutored for his High School’s peer tutoring program, which he eventually led for two years. He has also worked as a mentor for a group students, building rapport with them by playing games and helping them deal with school life and academics.

His specialties include: Mathematics and Physics at all levels, Chemistry, Essay Writing, and French as a second language.

Ralph has practiced and is proud of his ability to adapt his teaching style to match how his students think about the foundational concepts. He has noticed that anxiety and low confidence in students often causes content to seem a lot more daunting than it really is. He recognizes that self-esteem and ease-of-mind make a significant difference in a students motivation and ability to learn, and likes to break down concepts, making them less “scary” by avoiding going off topic or sugarcoating content.

His experience, combined with his style of teaching helps students deal with school-related anxiety by building their confidence and showing them that they too can grasp seemingly difficult concepts.
