Everyday is a Learning Experience!
Kevan Hudson has lived in four countries: Canada, Great Britain, South Korea and Switzerland. He lived in South Korea for just over 15 wonderful years (2003 to 2019). He has traveled extensively to over 20 countries in Africa, the Americas, Asia and Europe. Since 2015 six countries that he thoroughly loved visiting were South Africa, Australia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand and Taiwan. In every country Kevan visits he has local friends (every continent except for Antarctica) that make the trips fantastic and memorable.
Kevan volunteers a fair amount in international and local organizations such as Amnesty International, Literacy Central Vancouver Island, and the Nanaimo Area and Land Trust (NALT). Kevan loves soccer. He has played with professional players and played against or with former members of the Men’s National Team. He also loves animals and the outdoors. Cycling, hiking and walking bring great joy to him. An Anna’s Hummingbird lives in his parents’ garden, and bees love the garden sage from spring to fall.
Lastly, Kevan definitely loves teaching. Over 25 years of experience working in Canada and South Korea as a job and a volunteer. He worked in the Richmond School District from 1993 to 2002 teaching primarily the General Education Diploma (GED), History and Social Studies. For 15 years (2003 to 2019) he taught in South Korea. Mostly working with Korean Elementary and Secondary Teachers at teacher training centers (8 years), and university students (7 years). In addition, he also has had some classes with Elementary students.
Kevan is looking forward to tutoring in the following subjects:
- English (K – 12)
- English as a Second Language (K – 12 and University)
- History/Social Studies (G 1-12)
- Professional Editing (University)
In Kevan's own words:“The ‘Twist’ is the emphasis on life-skills based education. Self-motivation (intrinsic motivation) is one of the key skills to learning. Good study skills combined with intrinsic motivation leads to success. I look forward to being part of that success with your child!"
