Hi my name is Tara and I am a high school teacher in the subject areas of English and Geography mainly. I have over seven years of teaching experience in both these subjects and in Special Education. I have also taught on a 1-1 basis for learners both in mainstream and with special educational needs. I have taught English as an additional language to many learners who have arrived to the country with little to no English. I also have experience in teaching children in elementary school both in mainstream and in special education too.
I studied a three year Joint Bachelor of Arts degree in the subjects of English & Geography and a two year Professional Masters of Education, both in University College Cork in the Republic of Ireland.
I have made the exciting move to North Vancouver from Ireland and I am very excited to develop my skills and teaching experience here. I really enjoy working with children and I feel a great sense of reward when they develop their understanding of areas that were once very difficult for them to learn about and comprehend. I also love to create a learning environment where the learner feels confident to ask questions and engage in a way that they feel excited to learn. I create this learning experience by having multi-sensory classes therefore each learner can thrive in a way that suits their learning style and needs.
I really look forward to working with your child and I will do my best in creating a fun, caring and learning environment.
