94 average grade 12 student gives English lessons for students of all ages in Richmond Hill

Methodology

My teaching method is breaking down concepts into manageable and understandable pieces. I know that some concepts can be overwhelming so I like to use visuals as well as examples to help students relate to the idea.

Background

I am currently a high school student finishing up their final year of school with a 94% average. I excel in English, biology, and health/fitness. I'm a super friendly and personable person who loves teaching and meeting new people!

Rates

Transportation Fee : $2
Rate for online lessons : $ 18/h

Details

I realize being a high school student gives me a disadvantage in this business so my rates are low ($18 an hour) for my students (typically would be $25-30 an hour). Depending on how far you live I can travel there but I would raise the price to $20 an hour. I'm an understanding person so I won't charge you for cancellations. I hope I can be an affordable and flexible option to meet your child's needs whatever the age.
