Hi, warm greetings. Allow me to introduce myself. I have enjoyed teaching teens in a variety of subjects for 14 years in the Catholic board and in private schools. As a retired teacher, it is so rewarding tutoring 1-1 and with small groups. As a curious person who loves to explore people, knowledge, and places; it is wonderful when you make connections learning together. Using evidence based strategies helps students (including my 3 children) learn to see things in different ways, in different subject areas, at their own pace and level. This really develops their thinking and their confidence. This is what I work towards. When children relax, recall, and enjoy, they can make these connections in learning and in life.
Biography (tutoring history)
Started tutoring in 2013, and retired from teaching in 2017. In 2015, many parents were sceptical when I started tutoring live online using Zoom. Providing lesson plans and curriculum support has kept students focused with better understanding and definitie improvements in writing and marks. I have tutored high school English online in public and private schools here in Ontario. Also , in China, small groups and 1-1, high school English for test preparation. For the past 3 yrs, I have tutored beginner English online to 5-11 yr olds for a Bejing company.
