PhD student offering engaging help for science, math, and English in Guelph


I believe learning should be fun and engaging. I tailor my approach to the learning style of the individual. I work with students to address areas of improvement and work to support them in their learning. I focus on elementary school curriculum.


I am a current PhD student studying epidemiology and international development at the University of Guelph. I hold a Masters degree in International Health from the University of Leeds in the UK and a Bachelor of Science from the University of Guelph. I have extensive experience in health education program development and implementation.
