Certified Secondary School Teacher - After-School Lessons Any Subject (Specializing in English)

Methodology

As a full-time teacher working in both Elementary and Secondary schools, I have a broad range of teaching methods. I have always been able to connect with students and encourage their comfortability so that each individual can succeed. All students have different abilities and struggles, so it is important for me to differentiate my teaching strategies to ensure that each student is comfortable, confident, and able to succeed!

Background

I am a certified Elementary and Secondary School Teacher located in Vancouver, BC. I have a Bachelor of English Specialization in Language and Literature, and a Graduate Diploma in Education, as well as 5 different certificates. I have 5 years of teaching experience that expands internationally, from teaching English in London, UK, to Humanities in Melbourne, Australia, to World Issues in Tanzania, East Africa. I am currently a teacher with the West Vancouver school district, and hoping to tutor after-school to help students that may need some one-on-one support!
