Personal Description:

I'm a former officer in the Canadian Armed Forces and now a Junior High and High School teacher. I have six years of adult education experience and three years working as a teacher with students aged 11-18. Most recently I was working in Northern Alberta but returned to Nova Scotia due to a family illness (and homesickness). My experience is in helping students with a wide range of challenges use their strengths and interests to succeed in traditional and non-traditional environments.

Tutoring Experience:

I'm a Junior High and High School teacher with experience working with students from grades 4 to post-secondary. As a classroom teacher and tutor in Alberta I have taught Math, Science, English, History, Geography, Sociology and test preparation for over three years. I have tutored students ranging from grade 4 Math to fourth-year university Sociology in person and online.

Tutoring Approach:

I take a strengths-based approach to tutoring. Every student is amazing at something and my job as a tutor is to assess that student's strengths and get creative with the curriculum to help a student achieve his or her goals.

My tutoring begins with a quick assessment of a child's strengths using a variety of instruments based on the goals of the parent and student. After the assessment is complete, I will work with your child's classroom teacher where possible to access any work that may be missing and discuss strategies or existing assessments that may help. In addition to your child's teacher's work, I take a skills-based approach to any gaps in their understanding so that your child can deal with new challenges in the future and will design new learning experiences that meet your child's goals.
