I have nearly 20 years experience as an extensively trained and certified professional instructor. I will guide your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. Through careful observation of each student and his or her work, I create a personalized at-home study plan which I am constantly updating in response to each student’s actual results on a class by class basis, as well as in response to my assessment of progress being made at home.
I have learned through working with hundreds of children of all ages and a wide range of abilities and personalities that it is vital that each assignment be completed and corrected in a timely manner to 100% within a designated time frame. Thus parents are strongly encouraged to check their children’s work daily, and ensure corrections are done quickly and comfortably. Close adherence to the Kumon method has helped my students increase study skills, math and/or English skills as well as their self-confidence, and thus they become more self-reliant.
I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed. I have seen how Kumon can transform lives for the better and know that while it demands a significant family commitment, it is well worth the investment of time and money.

Biography and Background
As a franchise owner and instructor , I ran learning centres in both French and English in the Outremont and West Island areas of Montreal before moving to Hamilton in the fall of 2010.
Having successfully guided hundreds of students in the Kumon method, I have made more than a career of it. It is a way of life for me. I have noticed that many people come to Kumon after trying different tutoring approaches and becoming discouraged with the lack of results. It is amazing how much of a difference Kumon can make to children’s learning.
Another passion of mine is singing in classical concert choirs. I currently sing with Voces Animae and the choir at the Anglican Church of the Ascension on John and Charlton, directed by John Laing – see his site at http://www.johnlaing.ca/. I am one of the main soloists and cantors at the church, and often play the flute there. I have formerly sung with Masterworks of Oakville.
Finally, I am a member of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce and the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB).
