Algonquin College Business Graduate and small business owner offers online homework help as well as private tutoring in math in the Township of North Grenville, ON.

Methodology

I believe that the ability to learn and understand a subject is directly correlated to the teacher's ability to convey the information. Getting to know my students and understanding how they learn allows me to personalize my lesson plans based on a pupil's individual needs. Learning is an individual journey and I am here to help you discover yours!

Background

I am an Algonquin College graduate in Business Management and Entrepreneurship. During the Covid-19 Pandemic, I founded a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to supporting the dance community with funding and volunteer services through artisan soaps and bath products.

Growing up, I was a dancer and acrobat which led me to train with the circus. I was a dance teacher for 10 years and absolutely loved it. I miss it very much but unfortunately, my body cannot handle the stress anymore. The part I miss the most is sharing knowledge.

I have always loved helping others with their school work, all the trough college. I thrive in numbers and genuinely love math. My hope is to make math fun again! Though I've been blessed with the ability to thrive in today's school system, my siblings were not as lucky. I spent a lot of time helping my siblings and friends with their school work. Now, I want to do the same for you!

ACTIVITIES
Right now, my biggest passion is running my small business. The Sunny Pineapple is a not-for-profit social enterprise that is dedicated to supporting the dance community through funding and volunteer services through the sales of our artisan soaps and bath products. I was a dancer for 22 years. From the ages of 12-18 I was sponsored by an angel donor because my parents couldn’t afford to pay for my dance lessons. This person made it possible for me to attend several prestigious dance schools in the country including The National Ballet School of Canada, Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, and The National Circus School in Montreal which I attended after high school majoring in aerial hoop and minoring in contortion.

Having taught dance for 10 years, I have developed the ability to teach and communicate information in many ways to ensure the recipient is understanding. I have a passion for teaching and giving back to the community. I attend dance events and help with planning, set-up, and tear down. I often act as stage manager, head runner, or MC. I love being in front of people and getting everyone excited.
