About Sundus Shaikh

As Phil Collins stated, "In learning you will teach, and in teaching you will learn."

- My involvement in BrainMass is for this very reason. As an undergraduate Architecture student at the University of Waterloo, I not only became more skilled at design, but also became interested in assisting my fellow students, presenting my work and collaborating with my professors. This, I found, enriched my educational experience and developed my interest in teaching.

After enrolling as a Master of Architecture student at the same institution, I took part in the Fundamentals of University Teaching program, which equipped me with vital knowledge about teaching techniques, lesson planning and public speaking. I also worked as a teaching assistant for two courses, where I actively assisted with lectures, and provided in-depth feedback to students.

I now work as an Architectural Designer for an international design firm, and pursue other hobbies such as cooking, running, star-gazing, travelling and writing. Of course, I continue my passion for teaching and coaching through BrainMass, which I joined in March 2015. It is a pleasure to assist students from a diverse range of backgrounds and most importantly, to know that I am making a difference in their educational endeavours.

Here's to boosted confidence, better performance and quality education!
