I am a former teacher and school principal with over 30 years of teaching experience. My work in special education has provided me with the expertise to work with students of all age levels.
I have been successfully tutoring for the last 10 years. We have just moved to a new home and I would like to make contacts in this new area.
Essay planning, writing and editing is a particular interest of mine. I now live within walking distance of Brock University and would like to connect with students there.
My approach is encouragement and support while working on basic skills. I go to a child's home as I find that easiest for parents and children. I am finding that so many children are not getting the extra time needed to master skills in class and guided support is needed to increase confidence and improve learning outcomes. Since I am retired, I have the time to devote a lot of energy in helping your child succeed.

Thank you for helping me to write a letter. Though we had 3 hours time difference between where we live, you were very flexible and accommodated to my urgency. As an adult ESL student, I used to think to focus on syntax and grammar was more important. But you taught me that organizing thought was also critical when writing as well to communicate with others. I must say how much your personable approach helped me. You tried to find out what I needed to write by asking me various questions. I felt like discussing with you about writing my thoughts was like talking to a counsellor. Your questions guided me to find out what I needed to write about precisely. When having a problem expressing myself in writing, your approach profoundly helped me. Thank you again for helping me.
Very gentle and good with young minds.
