Primary/Junior and Intermediate Math and English Tutor, SSAT Coach
About:I graduated from the University of Ottawa in 2011 with an Honours Bachelor of Arts, majoring in both history and geography. Following graduation, I taught as a private English/Essay Writing tutor for junior high school and high school grade levels. Additionally, I have experience teaching mathematics to students at the primary and junior grade levels and I enjoy using a scaffolded approach to the teaching of this subject. I recently returned to Canada after teaching for more than three years at a language school in Nagoya, Japan. As an English as a Second Language (ESL) instructor, I have had the privilege to work with all age groups - from toddler to adult - in a variety of classroom settings (one-on-one, small group, and large classroom). I am a trained SSAT Coach and I enjoy prepping students for this test at both the Middle and Upper Levels.
I am currently studying at the University of Toronto's prestigious Master of Teaching (MT) program, where I will graduate with a Master's Degree and teaching certification through the Ontario College of Teachers (OCT). In my free time I am an avid sports enthusiast, with a particular passion for hockey, golf, tennis, and cycling. I am also designing a web resource to help students develop their writing skills.
