Janine

what makes her an awesome tutor

I didn't like math or physics until my second year at Ryerson when I was introduced to the best Modern Physics professor. He became my teaching role model because he genuinely loves the classes he teaches and genuinely cares for his students. Because of him, I strive to be the best teacher as possible in hopes that my students will get the same "Aha!" moment and find their enthusiasm for math and physics.

Education:  I am in the third year of my BSc in Medical Physics at Ryerson University.

Fave Tech Advice: My phone, of course - a whole world that fits in my pocket!

Fave Book:  "Oh, the Places You'll Go!" by Dr. Seuss. My grade eight teacher read that to us before we graduated and it has stuck to me ever since. 

Fave Song:  "Chiquitita" by Abba. Whenever I hear this song I know everything will be okay.

Fave TV Show:  Three-way tie between Bob's Burgers, How to Get Away with Murder, and Modern Family.

Fave Movie:  The Girl Who Leapt Through Time - makes me cry every time. 

Fave Outfit:  Black jeans, a comfortable shirt, and a nice pair of black, pointed-toe ankle boots. I LOVE black pointed-toe ankle boots.

When your not crunching numbers:  I'm probably eating out or having a drink with some family and friends. Quality time with some loved ones is much needed when you're stressed out from life.

What's The best thing about you? I am shamelessly lame. I like relaxing at home, marathoning way too many shows in a row. I invest too much time on phone games. I get too excited about school. I dance like an old woman. 

nerd alert! 

I don't know why but I really enjoy scaring myself. I like to read scary short stories from Reddit, watch loads of horror movies, and play horror games (VR horror games are the best). I often scare myself so much that I'm afraid of going to the bathroom alone, or sleeping in my own room.
