Hayley R.

Hayley Rodgers is a certified teacher in the Northwest Territories. Born in Clareville, Newfoundland, Hayley grew up in Inuvik and upon graduating high school pursued a career as a teacher by attending the University of Alberta to obtain her Bachelor of
Education. It had always been her plan to receive her degree and return to teach in her hometown, and that’s exactly what she did. Hayley graduated in 2015 with her Bachelor of Education and moved back to Inuvik. She taught grade 7 English Language Arts, Social Studies, Health, and Careers for six years at East Three Secondary School. After her 6th year of teaching, Hayley took a year off to travel and then settled in Yellowknife where some of her family resides.

Having been raised in a Northern community, Hayley understands the youth and their emotional, social, and educational needs.  She decided to pursue tutoring to work more one-on-one with students and address some of the needs that arose from the pandemic. She understands that many students may have struggled with academics during the Covid pandemic and the need for support and supplementary lessons outside of the classroom is high as a result. Having taught through Covid, she understands the struggles of teachers, parents, and students when trying to fill in the inevitable learning gaps that arose. Hayley’s goal is to support students so they can feel confident and ready for the classroom.

Hayley has been trained in various reading assessment programs. Her main area of expertise is improving reading and writing. This includes but is not limited to formal and informal writing, creative writing, essays, vocabulary, and grammar. She can offer support across many grade levels, from junior high to high school to adult learners.

Hayley believes that building a strong bond with students helps her better meet their individual
needs. She understands that all students have different needs, and what makes us different makes us unique. In her free time, Hayley is an avid reader, and artist, and has a love for all things nerdy. She approaches her teaching style with a sense of humor and believes learning should be a fun partnership between tutor and student.

Melanie G.

Melanie (Mel) is a passionate educator that has had the pleasure of completing a Bachelor of Science degree (general science and ancient Greek studies), Bachelor of Education degree (teachables in mathematics, science and biology) and a Master of Science degree (with focus on water chemistry, animal physiology/biology, animal behaviour, biostatistical analyses, circular statistics, weather patterns, lake systems and in-depth interpretation of data manipulation).

Mel is extremely patient, and loves being challenged. She believes that education and learning can be extremely fun and exciting. Teaching students to understand rather than memorize is Mel’s philosophy. By building a vast knowledge base rather than regurgitating information that has been memorized can be helpful not only in education but as a life skill. Her major goal is to inspire those around her to be successful (in both their personal and academic life) and to guide others to discover their potential to achieve success!
