Teaching is something I’ve loved for a long time. Ever since high school at Lawrence Park, when I was a ski and swim instructor, I have been teaching in one form or another. During my senior years at university, I was a student tutor and manager of the Business Help Center, assisting peers in 1st and 2nd year commerce courses. After graduating with distinction from Bishop’s University with a BBA in Finance and a minor in Economics in 2008, I moved to Busan, Korea to teach English for 3 years, where I was able to further develop his teaching skills, logging hundreds of hours of in-classroom experience. Most recently, I lived in Tokyo, Japan and gained further experience, working one-on-one with students of all ages and backgrounds in an after-school private academy.
I take education very seriously, yet I understand that students often find it hard to relate to the material and their teachers. And so when teaching, I always try to explain subject matter in a practical way. I consider myself to be an enthusiastic and fun person, so motivating my students comes naturally to me. I feel as though my students are able to relate to my methods in one way or another, which bodes well for success in our lessons.
