Emily brings patience, attention, thoughtfulness and a sense of humour to her style of tutoring.   Emily has worked in many different environments and strives to provide instruction that is student focused, fun and engaging.

Emily’s passion is helping people discover their own potential and gain confidence in their innate abilities.  

Emily thrives new challenges, whether it be joining the Canadian Forces, backpacking through South America to experience other cultures or teaching in a remote First Nations reserve to understand some of the unique joys and challenges facing First Nations people in Canada.

Having worked in multiple districts, independent schools and First Nations schools, Emily understands that in order for learning to be worthwhile, it must be student-centered. This means identifying a child’s learning preference and tailoring instruction to meet it, and connecting curriculum to a child’s interests and passions.

 In addition to teaching, Emily has experience practicing yoga and mindfulness, and is excited at the opportunity to share these practices!

In Emily's own words:"To me, The Twist, is the act of honouring each individual's unique way of learning, worldview, experiences, culture, passions, goals and beliefs. This means to listen and reflect so that we, as tutors, may offer guidance to help a person find their own strengths and empower them with the skills to problem solve and achieve their goals."
