Feeling lost? Need math help? Creative, fun, reliable, experienced! Registered Math/Science Teacher!

Methodology

I'm friendly, patient and encouraging. I understand that everyday life affects how you do in school, whether it's not getting along with your math teacher or just a hard week. I'm here to help you build confidence in your abilities and get back on track.

Background

Hi!

I'm Graham. I love skiing steep powder as much as geeking out on science and math. I've worked with youth for the last 12 years on canoe expeditions to the Northwest Territories, collecting water quality data for chemistry, building gliders for an aerospace unit and hunting for fossils behind my school.

10 years of professional experience working with students in challenging educational environments:
- Tutoring
- Senior Science and Math Teacher
- Environmental education
- Youth care work
- Outdoor education
