I am an experienced tutor with over twenty years especially in teaching English skills. In my tutoring sessions, I make learning fun and easy with a variety of left and right brain learning techniques such as mind mapping, memory training and speed reading. Because each student is unique, I work with students’ passions and interests to integrate subjects in an interesting way. Last but not least, I can tutor high performing and gifted/talented learners as well as students with unique and different learning approaches.

Learning a new language is hard work, but it is enjoyable if the teacher uses innovative and interactive
methods–that is why my students make quick progress and look forward to their tutoring sessions. For exam prep sessions, I believe a deadline and a mark goal are not daunting but rather motivating and an opportunity to succeed!
I have 12 years’ experience in teaching English and French overseas and in Canada. Since I am fluent in 5 languages, 3 of which I learned as an adult, I better understand how best to learn a language from firsthand experience. I have chosen to tutor because I enjoy giving individualized support to help students build confidence and get superior grades.
I am an experienced K-7 classroom teacher, BC certified. I have taught in elementary classrooms in BC public schools for over 18 years in Vancouver, Richmond, North Vancouver, on Vancouver Island and in the Kootenay region. I have also taught in private English-speaking schools as a classroom teacher in Brisbane, Australia for one year and in Bangkok, Thailand for 13 years. While in Thailand, I had the opportunity to work as both a classroom teacher as well as a school administrator. Upon my return to Canada in 2012, I have worked as a tutor to children with English as a second language. My love of children and knowledge of curriculum make me an excellent teacher and tutor.
