Personal Description:

I am a writer and theatre artist, with a passion for education. I studied English Language and Literature at the University of Toronto, Theatre and Development in Montreal and most recently physical theatre at Ecole Jacques Lecoq in Paris. I have been tutoring since 2007, and have taught in Canada and abroad. I also hold a Masters in Creative Writing and therefore hold a unique perspective when it comes to developing my student's writing skills.

I run a physical theatre company called Open Heart Surgery Theatre and write plays. Recently my play First Draft was performed in Cairo, Egypt at Fallaki Theatre after having a run in London, UK at the Camden People's Theatre and then as part of the Mimetic Festival at The Vaults near Waterloo. I am passionate about books, poetry, music and travel.

Tutoring Experience:

I have been teaching in the UK, France and Canada for over 7 years with an excellent track record at helping my students succeed in their English comprehension, writing and oral understanding. I know the British Schools system and the American and Canadian systems, and have helped many students in Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Shanghai).

I am a theatre artist and Artist Educator who has been funded to bring my Playwriting and Theatre workshops into schools across Ontario. For the past four years I have worked with students age 6-18, developing their language and literacy skills through the creative arts. I also teach Devised Musical Theatre at Randolph Academy.

I have spent two years working with students in the UK, particularly London, teaching English and Math to High School and Elementary students. I have taught English to bankers and business people in Paris, France, developed Creative Writing workshops to 11-year olds in South London, and provide one-to-one tutoring services to adults to help develop their essay writing skills.

The companies I have worked for: Keystone Tutors (London,UK), Knowledge Seekers (UK), C'efficace (Paris, France), ICB Europe (Paris, France), Bridgepoint Tutors (Hong Kong)

Tutoring Approach:

I believe in a creative approach to learning. Engaging lessons, application and feedback is always key. My work with my pupils involve creating a program that suits my students needs, we map out goals and assess our goals every week.
