This is how 2 referees rated Emma:
Hi, I'm Emma! I'm a primary/junior teacher in central Toronto, where I live with my dog, Sila and my cat, Achilles! I received my MA from the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education at U of T, and my HBA in Psychology from York University. I first discovered my passion for teaching when I lived in Cambridge Bay, Nunavut, where I worked at the community's only daycare! Since then I have always carried a special and personal interest close to my heart for working with First Nation, Métis and Inuit students. I have an additional teaching qualification in Math, and completed French Immersion from Kindergarten to Grade 12!
I currently work as an Occasional Teacher with the Toronto District School Board. I have my secondary-school French Immersion certificate, so I am comfortable tutoring French as a second language at the primary/junior level. I have worked as an Early Childhood Assistant at an after-school care program in Toronto for over five years. While living in Cambridge Bay, NU, I worked as an Early Childhood Assistant before I was promoted to Acting Program Administrator by the daycare's parent board. I have recent experience tutoring students one-on-one in grades Kindergarten to Grade 6 (Primary/Junior) in both English Language and Math.
I am an enthusiastic, empathetic, and encouraging teacher/tutor, that focuses on student-centered learning. This means I'm flexible, being able to accommodate or modify for my students' learning needs/styles, while always maintaining high expectations of them. I think learning should be fun and rewarding, so I try to implement games and incorporate student interest into the content whenever possible!
