The best learning involves focus and brain work, but it should always be fun and rewarding. If you’ve ever had a sports coach that you really liked – I’m probably trying to be like them. I like to break a problem down into a number of small steps to reason your way through. This way we can isolate any trouble spots and get the hang of the problem solving.
I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Biochemistry at Mount Allison University and then went on to receive my Master’s of Science Degree in Chemical Physics.
Most of my teaching experience has been as a teaching assistant, conducting tutorials and demonstrating labs. I have a number of years tutoring one on one, both at the university and high school level. I was also a supply teacher for one term, teaching high school classes right the way down to Junior Kindergarten.
I love the outdoors, mountains in particular. I tend to use up my vacation time visiting rock climbing destinations. I grew up on a lake and always love getting out in a canoe.
