CASSANDRA Z.

My name is Cassandra and I am a recent graduate of both Ryerson University and York University respectively. My educational background is heavily focused in early childhood education/studies. I have a diploma in Early Childhood Education with honours and two degrees, one is a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Studies and the other is a Bachelor of Education. I am also a newly registered primary-junior teacher with the Ontario College of Teachers hoping to start my journey in the near future of having my own primary classroom. I am a huge advocate for hands-on learning because I personally believe that the act of learning is done best when the experience is an enjoyable one. I have always been a huge fan of literature and the arts and try to incorporate different elements of the arts into my everyday teaching practices. When working with students, I try my hardest to form meaningful bonds with each individual child to really get to know how they learn best and how I can help them reach their full potential. Outside of teaching, I am a lover of cats, I have one of my own named Luna who I’m sure will end up joining some of my tutoring sessions. I am a huge shopaholic, I love clothes, make up, shoes and everything and anything in between. I love to cook and try out new recipes. I find cleaning extremely therapeutic and I am a huge social butterfly! I look forward to working with you and your child(ren) in the near future!
