Class Experience

I will be teaching Grade 8 Math.  The class will include a lecture component and then practice component. Other worksheets and activities may also be used in class. I may use games, slides, video, images, manipulatives to teach the material. I will be using the interactive whiteboard on Zoom so students are encouraged to provide their share their responses using a mouse, in the chat box or using a drawing tablet. Completion of Grade 7 is required for the Grade 8 section. Please note, the curriculum moves very fast.

Teacher expertise and credentials
Bachelor's Degree in Education from University with concentration in Math and Science
I have over 17 years of teaching experience in classrooms and in one to one tutoring settings. I believe in lifelong learning. I graduated with a Bachelor of Education in Elementary with a Math and Science specialization. I also completed a Diploma in Early Years Education, Certificate in Kindergarten, Diploma in Special Education, and Certificate in TESL (Teaching English as a Second Language). I have worked with student ages from Pre-K to Grade 12.

I believe every student can learn and each student may learn differently. My job as an educator is to teach students and provide them with new challenges that stimulate their own thinking and inspire them to enjoy learning.
