Hi! I’m a former teacher with degrees in both Child and Youth Study and Elementary Education. I have experience teaching at the K-6 levels and as a tutor for a Learning Disability Association.
I have three boys at home – aged 13, 11, and 9 – along with my husband, a dog, and two cats. I love to read, watch movies, and play board games. My favourite things include the beach and ocean, every animal imaginable, and everything Disney.
I have a passion for education in general, but my biggest interest has always been in literacy (and art). As a literacy tutor, I am continually reading and taking professional development courses in order to learn all I can about the most effective ways to help children succeed.
Please contact me if you’re interested in Literacy Tutoring for your child.
I’m located in Airdrie, Alberta.
**As of Sept. 2021, my schedule is quite full and I am most likely not able to take on any new clients. You are still welcome to contact me to inquire if there have been any changes or to be added to a wait list. I may have daytime hours to be able to accommodate students that are doing online schooling or homeschooling.**
My personal education in providing the best literacy instruction never ends! Not only is literacy my job, it truly is a passion. I am continually reading books about the best literacy practices, I am an active part of online literacy communities, and I attend many professional development courses each year. As I learn more, my practice adapts to provide the most benefit to students.
