Mathematics tutor, Canadian educated, in person or online, in Ottawa area available.

Methodology

I help the student bring their goals to fruition in cooperation with the student and support from any friends and family that may be involved. I try to help determine what the road blocks to success are and address those concerns first rather than reteaching material. My aim is to provide the student with tools that can be applied to any subject and eventually on their own.

Background

Born, raised and educated in Canada. Phd in Mathematics, MSc in statistics. Certified Pilates instructor. Owned and operated my own Pilates studio business. Experience private tutoring high school mathematics in Ottawa and Toronto. Studies both here in Canada and abroad.
