I graduated from Brock University in 2011 with an undergraduate degree in Psychology, after many years working with children as young as 3 months up to 14 years old, I returned to school for my Bachelor of Education at Brock university for my primary/junior certification. After graduating, I spent 2 years teaching internationally in London, England. Some of my previous experiences include working as a swim instructor for the City of Toronto, volunteering in both TCDSB and TDSB across many grades, working as an Educational Assistant for a TCDSB summer school program for students with special needs, and volunteering at a specialized preschool program for children with multiple exceptionalities and difficulties. While in school and having returned to Canada, I worked in Early childhood programs to support the development of children through learning and play. When I am not teaching and tutoring, I enjoy travelling, playing hockey/volleyball and spending time with my friends and family.
I am an Occasional Teacher with the TDSB and have furthered my professional development by completing Additional Qualifications in Special Education Part 1 and Primary/Junior Math Part 1. I am passionate about helping students meet their goals, I provide academic support and encouragement to make them feel capable and confident in their ability to succeed.
