Meet The Manitoba Owners: Kyle & Suzi Friesen

About Suzi:

Suzi is excited to be part of the Prep Academy team, as she has always been passionate about teaching. Helping her parents learn English, as they immigrated from Portugal, was when she first learned about the rewarding feeling of empowering others.


At 13 years of age, she started her own summer camp and at 16 she started working with children aged 6 months to 12 years old at The Wellness Institute (W.I).  Her 11 years at W.I. is where she built on her teaching practices, writing curricula and learning how to lead a team while planning and teaching various children’s programs.


Suzi is known for always being mindful of putting students’ individual needs first.  Providing students with opportunities to succeed and build on their confidence and problem-solving skills. Suzi’s great listening skills and love for teaching is what made her a successful teacher in Manitoba.  She completed her 5 year – Integrated Bachelor of Education program at the University of Winnipeg and completed each year’s practicum, in schools in disadvantaged communities.  This prepared her for her 8 years of teaching in Winnipeg, which then led her to her role with the True North Youth Foundation.  Since 2014, Suzi has been the Director of Educational Programs, focusing on the development of the TNYF’s mental wellness program, Project 11.  Promoting mental health awareness has always been a meaningful area of focus for Suzi.  The importance of helping students turn challenging moments into resilient moments and helping them find their inner-strength to inquire, become self-aware and build on their self-esteem, is what she truly loves to do.


About Kyle:

Kyle is excited to be part of the Prep Academy Tutors Team and is a graduate of the University of Winnipeg’s five-year integrated Bachelor of Education program. He taught Adapted Math and Physical Education for 7 years in Winnipeg and coached various grade 7-12 sports teams for 11 years, specializing in varsity volleyball.


As a teacher, Kyle was known to create a positive environment for all of his students and prided himself in his ability to modify and adapt his teaching skills to meet his students’ individual needs. It has always been important for Kyle to provide opportunities for all students to explore their capabilities and to help them find their voice as they grow independently.


All types of learners felt heard and felt empowered in Kyle’s classes. Kyle has seen the benefits of tutors in his students’ lives, whether it is inspired students who continue to understand the importance of goal-setting and hard work or students who just simply benefit from the fact that they feel relieved to not have to figure everything out on their own. Kyle explains to his students that it is okay to ask questions. Being able to bring high-quality tutoring services connecting remarkable educators to Manitoba students so that they can reach their academic goals is truly rewarding for Kyle.
