About

Did online school suck this year? Feel like you didn't really learn that much? This summer I am running sessions designed to help you get caught up and ready for next year. These sessions include a diagnostic assessment of where you are currently at, a custom curriculum (we can do multiple subjects), and a student success component for soft skills. Sessions can be for any type of transition (grade to grade, grade school to high school, or high school to post-secondary) Message me today for more information. As a member of the Dean's Honour Roll at the University of Windsor, I have demonstrated excellence in my field while also developing techniques to make learning a fun process that will facilitate life-long curiosity. In addition to learning a wide variety of disciplines through in-class instruction, I have been a Teaching Assistant for Effective Writing, have travelled to England for a semester abroad, and have spent a year working in Parliament. Together we will focus on asking "why". This is the key to understanding subject matter, and it will help you to become a more inquisitive student. Not only will we review and analyze material, but I will teach you how to use graphic organizers and educational resources to get the most out of your learning experience.
