Experienced teacher and tutor available for private or group tutoring sessions!

Methodology

I believe that all students learn differently, and that said, each student may need something different from me. As a teacher, it is my duty to ascertain how each student learns from me best, and individualize their needs based upon this assessment.

Background

I am a certified teacher, with a Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Alberta, who has approximately four years of teaching experience and nearly 15 years of tutoring across virtually all subject areas and grade levels. In addition, I have a law degree (Juris Doctor of Law) from Thompson Rivers University, which I recently completed.
