Bio

I'm a teacher, musician, trail-runner, aspiring surfer and ecotarian. I love reading and visiting markets and art galleries. I'm passionate about knowledge and learning!

I have been teaching and tutoring for over 15 years now, and have discovered many different approaches to learning. I love that feeling when a person who thought that something was too difficult or complicated for them finally understands it once I've explained it or made an illustration, and they've realised they can do it. Success! It's the light bulb moments that inspire me.

My Proudest
Achievements

I have had opportunities to witness learners accomplishing in their areas of strength and weakness; to know that I have helped them in that process-how rewarding!
