Personal Description:

I am a certified secondary school teacher and have taught Chemistry 11, Chemistry 12, and Science in British Columbia secondary schools for 35 years.
After retiring from a very fulfilling career in the classroom, I decided I wanted to utilize my experience and thorough knowledge of secondary school level chemistry to continue helping students.
I have tutored chemistry both person-to-person in the area I live (Okanagan Valley in BC) and extensively online for 8 years and I absolutely love it.

Tutoring Experience:

I have taught chemistry and science in secondary schools including McBride Secondary School (3 years) and Summerland Secondary School (32 years).
I have tutored chemistry and general science both person-to-person and online for the last 8 years and continue to do so.
I create educational videos for the BC Learning Network for use in their online courses.
I mark and do some consulting for Southern Central Interior Distance Education School (SCIDES) for 3 years.
I worked for several years doing content development for Castle Rock Research Company based in Edmonton, Alberta.

Tutoring Approach:

To me, tutoring is all about helping students understand concepts in a way that is relevant to them and enabling them to realize their full potential. With all my students I quickly get to know what kind of help they need, their particular learning styles, and exactly what I can do to help them best. I am very patient and understanding. I think it is very important to establish a good rapport with students and provide an comfortable atmosphere to learn.
