senior English specialist
I'm Cara Rodger, a 28-year-old female with a true passion for the arts and literature. I have a BFA in Drama and a minor in English Literature. I am a certified OCT teacher qualified to teach English from grade seven to twelve. I have taught English Literature to all high school levels with a focus on essay writing, Shakespeare, novel analysis, and poetry. I also have experience teaching the Ontario Literacy Course. I love to travel and have just returned from teaching overseas in China! Teaching in China taught me many life lessons that I will hold onto forever. It was invigorating for me to be immersed in a new culture and learn as much from the students as they learned from me. I play guitar, sing, paint, draw, write, and act in theatrical performances. I love exercising my creativity. I believe that it is a muscle which needs to be worked daily to stay quick, sharp, and strong enough to take on any challenge. I am an avid reader and I am comfortable assisting you with writing from any discipline. I have studied all mediums of literature and can assist in any difficulties related to studying English. I love to laugh but also know how to use time efficiently to get the necessary amount of work completed. With all of this in mind, I believe in igniting the imagination and pushing the boundaries, to teach with a focus on differentiated instruction, and to provide a safe and supportive environment. I will always focus on the student's journey with respect, kindness, and support. Thank you for taking an interest in me, and I look forward to sharing and listening as your tutor!
