Ontario Certified Teacher and English major graduate offering tutoring for English from Hamilton, Ontario.

Methodology

My teaching methodology is based on universal design. I believe that students should be given a lot of different ways to learn things so that they can figure out which one best suits them. I think that there are ways that we can do things for students who have a hard time in the classroom so that they have an easier time and that students around them can benefit from this as well.

Background

I am a graduate of Brock University for my Bachelors of Education. Previously I graduated with a certificate of Creative Book Publishing Honours from Humber College. I completed my undergraduate degree from McMaster University with a Bachelors of Arts Honours.
I have 3 years of experience in the classroom either volunteering or in placement. I have a passion for reading and writing.
