Hi! I have coached figure skating for 20 years and love to see a student's face light up when mastering a new skill. I have B.Sc. in Environmental Chemistry and have tutored high school math and chemi

Methodology

My teaching methodology is to provide some structure in learning about a subject, but also to allow a student some autonomy. Students learn best when they have a sense of wonder and have some sense control of their learning. My classes include what is needed to learn in a subject and will be flexible enough for a student to learn further. When I coach skating, for instance, a skater is offered the chance to work on spins or jumps. We'll start with the one they want and then continue on to cover both spins and jumps in that sessions - or follow up with both within the next session.

Background

Hi! I love to teach people. I have a Bachelor of Science in Environmental Chemistry from the University of Waterloo. I have coached figure skating coach for over 20 years. I have homeschooled two children for ten years (one with Dyslexia and the other with Autism) and have tutored a number of students in high school math and chemistry. I try to work with where a student is at. Some students are behind and need help. Some may be bored. Some may struggle with certain concepts. I love to look at how a student learns and figure out what works best for each one of them. I love to learn from others too - we've had many international exchange students in our house, which has been fantastic for learning at all different levels!

Trudy's Resume

SKILLS AND ABILITIES IN TEACHING

• Enthusiasm - I simply enjoy teaching anyone just about anything. I love to see the joy when a student realizes that a skill is mastered.
• Math knowledge and tutoring – I have a B.Sc. in Environmental Chemistry and have tutored high school and elementary math and science students, as well as an English-as-a-Second language adult.
• Patience - I have a great deal of experience in teaching children with learning disabilities, so I have learned to work at whatever pace is needed for a student. I have studied the various phonetic aspects of learning how to read in great detail and am very creative in making lessons fun and interesting.
• Years of Experience - I coach figure skating many evenings a week in the winter season for twenty plus years and love to see a skater’s face when he/she accomplishes a new skill.
