I've been a passionate educator since I taught my first swimming lesson at 16 years old. Since then, I've worked as a lead camp counsellor for Children's Village of Ottawa-Carleton, a teaching assistant for Carleton University's School of Mathematics and Statistics, and a summer school teacher for college math at Adult High School. After I worked as a resource teacher for math studies and HL and SL biology, and an IB teacher for HL and SL math at Stratford Hall, an IB World school in Vancouver, BC. Since returning to Ottawa, I have been working in the Ottawa Carleton District School board, currently as a full-time permanent math and science teacher. Simply put, it is my life's work to work in tandem with anyone that has the desire to learn - to help achieve their goals and enjoy the process along the way. Along with education passion and experience, I worked as a Research Assistant at Carleton University in the field of crytography (which is a great silencer to children who ask me "What career can I have with a math degree!?."
I am passionate about helping you with learning:
