Personal Description:

I was born in Canada and graduated from Ryerson University with a Bachelor of English, and have a genuine passion for education. I enjoy watching my students improve and make progress. I'm an open and friendly person, and try to make my lessons fun and instructive at the same time :)

I will be obtaining a Master of Teaching degree from U of T come September 2020, as it's my dream to become an elementary teacher. However, I'm also familiar and comfortable with tutoring university students/adults (see my experience below to learn more).

Whether you (or your child) need assistance with reading, writing, pronunciation, or conversation, I'd be happy and eager to work with you!

Tutoring Experience:

YOUNG ADULTS/ADULTS

- Tutored many university ESL students through Ryerson's English Language Support program
> Identified students' needs (daily conversation, writing essays/research papers, reading comprehension, etc) and built custom lesson plans tailored to their abilities/interests

- Cambridge CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults) I obtained qualifies me to assist adults in all aspects of English communication

- Communication skills I cultivated through my English B.A. and Research Assistant position for the Texting Wilde Project (**Web Address Removed**) make me uniquely capable of assisting students looking to improve their schoolwork or just want to express their ideas clearly

CHILDREN

- Taught ESL for two years in Thailand to kids ages 4-12
> In charge of all lesson planning, and strove to make all my lessons fun, engaging, and educational
> Lesson content was age-dependent, but included areas such as the alphabet, phonics, reading, writing/spelling, and pronunciation

- Volunteer: Toronto Public Library's "Leading To Reading" program (help young students improve their literacy and language abilities)

- Classroom Assistant Volunteer: Scadding Court Community Centre's "EarlyON" program for kids ages 3-4 (help teach students the alphabet, phonics, numbers, vocabulary, and writing letters/numbers)

Tutoring Approach:

I approach each student with care and consideration because everyone's interests, abilities, and needs are different - this means I adapt my lessons and teaching methods to suit you. What is central to all my lessons though is that they are engaging, goal-driven, and provide useful feedback.
