I am a tutor, teacher, learning coach, trainer and counselor, so I enjoy helping people find joy in learning and achieving their goals, whether it is a school requirement or a passionate interest. In addition to being a tutor, I have had many interesting jobs, like working in a coffee shop, where I had to learn new skills in different ways from previous experience. I enjoy learning new things, like making lattes, latte art, and learning all I can about different coffees so I can share my passion for coffee with others. I have also traveled and worked abroad and have been able to use my second languages in work abroad in Japan and France.
On my own, I love writing stories, doing art, mainly painting, spending time with horses, and being in nature. My experience is that we all have different learning styles, gifts, talents and interests that can be tapped into with the right techniques, creativity, time and patience. As a learner I have seen that the way that a certain learning experience is created and presented can definitely make all the difference in my learning. The sky is truly the limit! What can sometimes begin as a challenge can become an amazing learning adventure with results beyond imagination. It can definitely be inspiring and lead to future life and work possibilities in magical ways, as I feel has happened in my life. I would be delighted to work with you and wish you all the best on your learning journey!
