Janice is a twice certified (Ontario and Quebec) teacher at the junior (grades 4-6), intermediate (7-9), and high school (grades 10-12) levels. With close to two decades science teaching and curriculum development experience with provincial governments, Janice has extensive knowledge of science skills and knowledge progressions of learning within the pan-canadian K12 franework and is highly skilled at making relevant real-world connections for students to support deeper learning.
Since 2005, she has been a learning coach and mentor, both face-to-face and virtual environments for public and private school learners. She sees infinite possiblities for using tech for good to support learning services at a distance.
Janice has worked in public, private and independent schools, teaching in same-sex and coed environments in Ontario, Quebec and New Brunswick. She has a background in geology and kinesiology, but has provided instruction for a range of sciences -- life science, physical sciences and earth and space sciences. She has been exclusively offering online tutoring services since 2017.
Janice's approach to tutoring is a relational one. It begins with establishing a relationship of mutual respect and cooperation. Time is taken to cultivate a connection to students through active listening and by showing interest in their growth and development, beyond the subject matter. In addition, her ability to make science concepts relatable to student's lives serves to spark curiosity, ignite their interest for the topic being explored, and consolidate learning.
