Certified Elementary teacher and ECE available for elementary or ESL lessons/homework support in the Guelph and surrounding area

Methodology

Especially for younger children, staying focused on something that is difficult can be very tricky. I strive to teach multiple strategies in various subjects to help your child find his/her best learning style that helps them succeed to the best of their ability.
When possible, I try to keep learning fun and entertaining so the information is retained better and it becomes a positive learning experience.
I understand the challenges of ESL struggles in an English-specific country and can help to make the struggles of ESL reading, writing, listening, and speaking more comfortable for the classroom.

Background

I am a certified teacher for K-6 in both Ontario and Alberta. I am also ECE certified for infant to Kindergarten age as well. I have taught internationally for 9 years and can be an asset if your child's second or third language is English.
If your child is struggling in school or needs a boost (especially in literacy), I'm here to help!

Rates

Transportation Fee : $10
Rate for online lessons : $ 30/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : $120

Details

Please provide 24 hours notice if you need to cancel. Otherwise, a 50% would be charged.
I may ask for an additional travel fee depending on how far away you live, but that can be discussed and negotiated.
For an additional fee, I am also happy to meet/pick up your child from school (after you and they are comfortable with me) if you need that service before getting home from work.
