Grant E.

Hello! My name is Grant. I have had the good fortune to teach in a variety of different settings to a variety of age groups over the last 15 years, and I am excited about the opportunity to help your child learn. For me, a key component of tutoring is creating a positive environment for students; once this is established, students will feel comfortable enough to engage with the work, ask questions, and take risks. I am an ‘encourager’ by nature, and feel that positive reinforcement is a great motivator and confidence booster.

I graduated from the University of PEI education program in the area of elementary education. I later received my CELTA certification in ESL training and a certification in School Librarianship. Teaching has taken me from eastern Canada to Japan to Qatar, and I am happy to be home in Ontario with the chance to work one-on-one with students. I love sports, reading, travelling, playing guitar, doing yoga, and hiking.
