Masters Graduate offering English classes (reading & writing) for students of all ages!

Methodology

I have always based my teaching on what works for the student in front of me; my classes are individualized to meet their needs and requests. I also believe in creating a friendly, fun, and inclusive learning environment where students feel comfortable asking any questions that they might have. With everything now being online, I strive to make classes as interactive as possible.

My English classes are meant for students grade 7-12, university or college level students, or any adult students looking to improve their English skills. My hope is that my students come out loving reading and writing just as much as I do!

Background

I am a working professional who received an undergraduate degree in English and History and went on to complete a Masters of Arts in Peace and Conflict Studies. My tutoring experience is largely with kids from K-12; I have 4 years of experience tutoring in the following subjects: English, French and Math. I also a year of experience as a teaching assistant to undergraduate-level university classes. I have also assisted Grade 12 students with University applications. I am excited about the opportunity to start tutoring once again!
