I am a high school English teacher. I graduated from the University of Toronto with an Honorary Bachelor's in Arts in Science, specialising in English. I received my TEFL degree also from the University of Toronto - certifying me to teach English to non-native English speakers. I studied kinesiology and exercise physiology as well at university. Before I went on to become a teacher, I did personal training and IT computer work for private at-home clients. The IT work included web design, video editing, being part of an app design team, and much more. Afterwards I shifted to the education scene where I'm currently an English teacher in a private high school.
