The first thing I do is I take some time to connect with my students and understand where they are at and where they would like to be. I am a very patient teacher (I have taught five year old's how to swim) and I do my best to meet each student where they are at. My teaching methods are based around mentorship and the understanding of how all concepts are interconnected. My main goal when teaching is to have students truly understand how to apply what they are learning to their lives rather than have students memorize information they will forget in two weeks.
While I have no problem teaching students of all ages, I excel at teaching and mentoring students in High School and College/University as I have found them to be the most open and drawn to the concepts I specialise in.
Students are the next generation of society; therefore, I do my best to make sure they excel in life.
I have quite a diverse background in various areas. I am currently working towards my master’s degree and PhD in Psychology. I hold an undergraduate degree in political science, geography, and educational psychology . In my final year I wrote a thesis on human nature and whether or not depression is inherent in human beings.
Professionally, I do public speaking, podcasting, and am currently employed by Stuart Shanker, professor emeritas of psychology & philosophy at York University and the CEO of The Mehrit Centre. In the past I have worked as a tour guide at Lakehead University, an all ages swimming instructor, an adventure guide at Blue Mountain, a camp counsellor & lifeguard at Camp Muskoka, and several other vocations.
Personally, I enjoy Jiu Jitsu, exercise and nutrition, reading, playing guitar, and "disconnecting" in nature. My main areas of interest include quantum physics, psychology, and philosophy.
If you need to cancel a lesson please do your best to let me know as far in advance as possible. I understand that life happens. If there is a pattern of last minute cancellations, we will come to an agreement about a cancellation fee.
The most important thing to know about me is that I am passionate about learning and constantly pushing yourself to see what you are capable of. Life is not simple, it is full of trials and tribulations. I believe the world is currently experiencing an identity crisis and I think the most effective way to deal with it is for everyone to develop themselves into people they would truly look up to. While I believe this process is much easier when it begins at a young age, everyone is capable of growing and improving in whatever direction they want to head in.
I like to make my classes practical so people can immediately start using this knowledge to impact their lives; no matter how young they are. I have a personal philosophy that information is useless until it is integrated into the framework of your life; i.e. the reason why self help books rarely change people's lives.
