For 15 years I have evolved my business into a innovative service dedicated to every learner I encounter, whether this is a one-to-one academic strategist meet-up or a group study skills session. What makes my business extraordinary is the trust I cultivate with the students. I have observed students lacking confidence in their strengths acquire a depth of purpose, gaining the self-assurance to achieve their academic dreams. My core lived experience, my skills as a health care professional working in numerous clinics and hospitals in Greater Toronto, Vancouver, and Victoria, my expertise in facilitating individuals and groups, focussing on key strengths and abilities, puts students at-ease, and into a ‘zone’ of deep learning. My gentle, humourous approach creates a space where anxiety leaves and competencies emerge.
