This is how 3 referees rated Keely:
I am an upbeat and positive teacher and always want the best for my students. I am professional in my approach but also friendly and have high expectations. I am understanding and care a lot about the success of my students. That being said, I am always willing to explain, support and give feedback to my students and will do my best to ensure they understand the curriculum. I am able to develop a good rapport with my students and create a friendly and positive environment.
I have been teaching now for 10 years in the Halton District School board. I currently teach at a high school in Oakville and have taught Geography, History, Civics, Careers and English over the years. However, my primary focus has been in grade 9 geography, grade 10 history and senior level geography and history courses. I have taught at a variety of levels from gifted clustered, academic and applied to the essential level. I have done tutoring more at school up to this point either at lunch or after school programs.
It is my goal to help students learn and improve and feel confident in their abilities. I would certainly use a friendly and positive approach when tutoring and provide students with different resources and strategies to help them feel they can succeed and improve in the subject. I would allow students to explain how they are feeling and to inform me of areas of difficulty so I know where to focus on.
