Prep Academy Tutors is pleased to announce the newest member of the Prep Academy family, Lindsay Wotherspoon. Lindsay will be running our Toronto East service areas, including The Beach, Downtown Toronto, East York, Scarborough, Danforth Village, Rosedale, Riverside, and Riverdale.
With 15 years of teaching experience at a preeminent, independent girls school in Toronto, Lindsay is at the pinnacle of her profession. She has worked as a primary teacher in Grades 2, 3 and 4, eventually taking on a role as Lead Teacher in an inquiry-based environment. Most recently she has applied her skills to Student Recruiting; working with students and their families to help them navigate the independent school environment. This role requires her to develop assessments as well as interview students and their parents to facilitate a smooth transition to the school.
Lindsay believes that teaching and learning is a partnership between students, teachers, and parents. For students to grow into confident and independent learners, they must first be known by their teachers. Building relationships with families is a particular strength of hers. Additionally, she recognizes the importance of timely and effective communication with families to build a safe and trusting relationship.
As a mother of three young children, Lindsay understands that each child learns differently and she has employed her knowledge of teaching and learning in her home. The power of listening and empathy are critical elements of Lindsay’s skills.
