Our Tutors

Erin Holmes

An Energy & Passion Like No Other!

Credentials:

  • Bachelor of Education specializing in Program & Course development, as well as English as a Second Lanugage (ESL)

Erin has used her education in Economics, Math, and English to tutor and teach students in elementary and high school in Ontario and Alberta. Now that she has moved to the Island, she is devoting her time to tutoring. She finds working directly with students one-to-one or in small groups offers the best learning environment. Her qualifications include a B.A. from the University of Western Ontario and a B. Ed. from the University of Toronto. She also has extensive experience developing courses and teaching English as a Second Language (ESL).

Instilling learner confidence is a major part of Erin’s tutoring, as the ability to express oneself is core to life. Erin’s students flourish when supported by her with individual tutoring.

In Erin's own words:To me, Tutoring…With A Twist fosters an atmosphere in which students have opportunities for ‘learning moments’ not just about the subject they are studying, but just as importantly about themselves. The Twist is helping them think about how to approach their own learning, about what they need to do in order to concentrate on any task, and about how to organize themselves in order to make the most of their time. These skills lead to success in school and beyond school.
