Ontario Certified Teacher in Durham Region tutoring reading and writing in home or online

Methodology

I believe that students need to be excited by their learning. If there is something that they are not enjoying I believe that there is always a way to make learning exciting.
Learning and school should be fun, exciting and should meet the student's needs.

Background

I have been teaching K-8 for two years full-time. I have taught in classrooms, in museums and have worked with students with varying learning disabilities. I would love to help you/your child close any learning gaps or to assist with homework.
