Personal Description:

Some of my tutoring specialties include: Mathematics (computational, algebraic, and numerical); Communication (writing, editing, and presentation skills); and General Studying Skills (research, resilience, time management, and organizational skills).

I am especially talented and passionate about developing Critical Thinking (logical reasoning) skills and Financial Literacy skills in students. The ability to use reason and to test claims is a critical core life skill that I incorporate into my work with each student. Financial sense and skills that help individuals manage their money, budget, understand credit and credit reporting, and make wise and informed financial decisions is an area of expertise that I love sharing.

In addition to my direct classroom teaching and tutoring experience, I have also spent time in ‘the real world’ of both the property/casualty insurance and banking industries. I have seen my tutoring students benefit from my workplace experiences when sessions turn to discussing career options, corporate culture, and professional communication skills.

When not working with students, I am a runner and tennis player. My experience as a competitive athlete has helped me understand the unique challenges high-performance athletes have when balancing their studies and their athletic excellence. I have a unique understanding of the athlete's soul and thus am proficient at helping athletes excel academically.

I also have experience and have enjoyed success working with youth dealing with anxiety, depression and ADHD (including those on the autistic spectrum). I have found that being able to actively listen and create a safe environment is essential in helping these young people develop resilience and achieve their academic and life goals.

I have worked with numerous students—each facing unique challenges—so I am confident I can improve your child's academic performance. I look forward to hearing from you!

Tutoring Experience:

I am a Certified Ontario Teacher in good standing with the Ministry of Education. I am a graduate of the University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education. I possess significant teaching and tutoring experience in the following Secondary Education Curriculum areas:

- Mathematics
- English
- Social Sciences & Humanities
- Business Studies
- Canadian & World Studies
- Guidance & Career Education
- Health & Physical Education

I have expertise in all Elementary Education curriculum areas.

Tutoring Approach:

I am a mature teacher, coach and mentor, skilled at relating to and inspiring students. I typically work one-on-one with students from grade 4 and up in Oakville, Mississauga and Burlington. I tutor exclusively in either your home or a local public library.

We will begin with a complimentary phone call to discuss your specific needs. During this discussion, I hope you will share your child’s specific needs and goals. Our discussion ought to help us determine whether or not your child and I will work well together. If we do decide to work together, we will arrange a mutually acceptable day and time for weekly sessions.

My greatest talent, which all of my clients agree on, is the degree to which I care about the students I work with. All of my clients value my accomplishments with their child; I am confident that after our initial consultation, you will see the value in having me work with yours!

I have many 5 star reviews elsewhere which I would be happy to share with you once we've exchanged contact information.
