Canadian university graduate offering to teach students in inner Melbourne and the West.

Methodology

I believe in helping students understand the ideas and principles behind what they are learning on a conceptual basis rather than relying on rote memorization. Ultimately the goal of tuition is to develop students who are capable and independent learners.

By helping students master more simple tasks they are able to build confidence in their abilities and they can be guided towards a love of learning and taking on greater challenges.

Background

I am a friendly, approachable woman from Canada with a diverse range of experiences in educating young people. I am looking to help students realise their full potential. I have a Bachelor of Arts in Music, with a Minor in Religious Studies from Concordia University College of Alberta. I received distinctions in several courses, including "Music History of the 20th Century", "Children's Literature", "English Language Literature of Commonwealth Countries", "Religion and Pop Culture" and "Composition".

I initiated and lead the "Under the Big Top" Program for 8 years. "Under the Big Top" is a summer camp for children, particularly those from impoverished and marginalized backgrounds. The program helps children from ages 4 to 18 build confidence by allowing them to learn from internationally renowned circus artists, culminating in a performance outcome.

I co-created the "Active After Schools" program with Strathcona County, which allowed primary school children to develop skills in Art, Dance, Drama, Performance, Yoga, Sports and Games in a semi-structured group environment.
