I grew up in Victoria and continue to enjoy life on the west coast. I love surfing, hiking, swimming, camping, and exploring outdoors in general. I am also an avid reader and passionate about fostering a love of learning in kids. While I have lived with a chronic illness the majority of my life (Crohn's disease) I consider myself very outgoing, energetic and friendly. Patience and flexibility are also strengths for me. I love working with kids and building positive relationships with each student I work with.
I have been tutoring since I started the Education program at UVic in 2016. My experience is primarily working with students with learning disabilities, ADHD, ASD, anxiety and mood disorders, chronic illness, and behavioural and other exceptionalities. I have been working as a teacher since 2018, and have been teaching and assisting in a special education school since 2020. I am also currently working towards my special education certificate and I am Level B certified. I currently teach grade 9 and 10 sciences and mathematics, but have experience in all subjects from kindergarten to grade 8.
