Ontario Teacher in Math and French Immesion Math! 10 Years Experience! Book Today!

Methodology

My teaching methods combine a variety of strategies and philosophies. I believe that in so many cases we tend to "throw the baby out with the bath water" when it comes to new educational pedagogy. I have found that there needs to be a good balance of "old school" methods and newer "high order thinking". We need to learn to walk before we can run and math is no different. A sound understanding of the basics will lead to automaticity in math facts and as a result will allow students to navigate more difficult questions with greater ease.

Background

I am a masters student who has chosen to switch careers. I have taught French Immersion for more than 10 years and I have a passion and an aptitude for teaching math. I believe that teaching math can and should be engaging and fun whenever possible.

Need more? Here are a few reviews from past and current students and their parents:

"I am so happy that we found Gill to help support my son in Math. She is giving my son targeted support for what he is learning in class as well as in other areas of deficit. As a teacher myself I can appreciate Gill's approach to identifying where my son has gaps and working efficiently to close them! I would highly recommend Gill as a tutor!" Stephanie - Grade 8 French Mathematics

"Gillian is currently tutoring my 9-year-old daughter in math and I couldn’t be more happier with her. She has a great personality, is super friendly and down to earth, and uses methods that make my daughter actually understand and retain what she is learningl I am so thankful we found her!" Irena - Grade 4 Mathematics

"Gill is a very effective teacher. My eight years old daughter said she can explain concepts in very simply and easy-to-follow ways. With the help of Gill, my daughter is now more fond of Math." Connie - Grade 3 Mathematics

" Gillian does everything possible to tutor and help me prepare for an algebra exam that was less than 24 hours away. When we were finally able to connect, she was amazing, in fact one of the best teachers I have ever had. She ensured that I understood all the topics on the exam as well as ensuring that I would be mentally/emotionally prepared. I appreciated her dedication and willingness to support me in an extremely stressful time." Leon - College Mathematics student

Details

For students who are taking senior math credits an extra 30 minutes per week will be billed out for tutor time and preparation to ensure that student time is used as efficiently as possible. This is due to the fact that many senior level classes incorporate inquiry questions that require time to work through and solve. This time is better front-end loaded prior to lessons so that the time can be used for as much instruction as possible.

Gillian has helped two of my children with individual tutoring. She is patient and will always make sure they understand why and how to solve the questions. Gillian understands their individual learning styles and adapts to make sure they understand the material and feel successful and confident. She has been fantastic in helping them organize their time and managing assignments. She truly cares about their overall success and is very patient to make sure they reach their goals.
