  • Bachelor of Arts

With over 15 years of experience teaching French Immersion in the public school system in BC and Manitoba, as well as 3 years teaching in England and Japan, Tania is very familiar with different learning styles and enjoys incorporating the knowledge she has gained from all of her travels into her teaching.

She has decided to leave the classroom in order to pursue her dream of doing mobile holistic healing. She is excited to continue using her teaching skills by working with Tutoring…With A Twist as this keeps this passion alive!

Tania’s past times include walking her dogs and going on long road trips. She returned to the Island in August after a 4 month journey across the prairies in her motorhome. Tania also enjoys learning about Energy Medicine, Aroma Therapy, Tai Chi, and various other ways to keep the body, mind and spirit in synch.

Tania will also have the exciting role of Community Liaison so you will see her there representing us in the community. Please welcome her to the Island and to our Team!

In Tania's own words:Being in a classroom full of children was very inspiring, but there is nothing like getting to spend time with a child one on one and really getting to know their passions and what makes them tick. The best part of being a teacher has always been seeing the lightbulb click over a child’s head when you help them figure something out, whether it is something academic, or an “aha” moment when they acquire a useful life skill. I look forward to being there when those moments happen and The Twist in Tutoring...With A Twist enables those moments to happen!
