I have a B.Fine Arts in film making from Concordia University in Montreal, a B.Sc.  with a combined honours in chemistry and physics from Dalhousie University and a B. Ed. in science and math from Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax.  I enjoy current events and watch way too much news.  

You never know where your life's path will lead you.   In addition to my 20 years of teaching I have been a radio DJ, a filmmaker, a bicycle courier, a waitress, a bartender, an NMR spectroscoper, a computer programmer, a cellist, a high school dropout and a three time university graduate.  I have helped students learn pretty much every course available from grade 8 to grade 12. Be open to your own potential. We want to help you get there!

"You cannot hope to build a better world without improving the individuals. To that end each of us must work for his own improvement, and at the same time share a general responsibility for all humanity, our particular duty being to aid those to whom we think we can be most useful."
