Christine Hudecki

OCT

Teaching subjects: General Science, Biology, Math, Physics

Hello!  My name is Christine. I have 26 years of teaching experience in both the elementary and secondary panels and am currently teaching high school science and media arts.  Outside of school, I enjoy hiking, birding and photography.  My own three children have grown up and with this extra time, I am now enjoying tutoring students to help them meet their educational goals.  Tutoring is highly personalized teaching that allows students to have their individual misunderstandings and challenges identified and addressed and I find this process very rewarding. I can help with math and science up to grade 10 as well as physics and biology up to grade 12.  Please let me know if I can be of assistance.

Donya Navardi

 

 

Teaching subjects: Elementary Reading and Writing, French

My name is Donya, and I am 35 years old. I’m a chemical engineer and currently studying at the University of Guelph in a Master of Biological Engineering program. Back in my home country, beside my engineering job, I used to teach French to kids, adolescents and later to adults who wanted to pass French exams such as TCF, TEF Canada, and TEFAQ. I have been babysitting in Canada since I came here in January 2023. Because of all these experiences plus being the eldest child of the family with 3 younger siblings, I have a very good relationship with children. I usually try to teach kids in innovative and entertaining ways, so that they do not get bored and learn better. I also try to adjust my methods according to the needs and personalities of children as I am opposed to using a fixed method for all children, and I think the method must be defined based on their strengths and weaknesses.

Thomas Heyland
BSc. Biological and
 
 
Pharmaceutical Chemistry

 

 

Teaching subjects: Chemistry, Biology, Math, Physics

Hey there! My name is Thomas Heyland! I graduated University of Guelph in 2022 with a degree in Biological and Pharmaceutical Chemistry. I have always had a knack for teaching and take great pride in the success of my students! I have been tutoring Chemistry, Biology, Math, Physics, and Toxicology for the better part of 3 years before I graduated university. I have been an avid tennis player since I was 10 years old, I've been coaching the sport for over 10 years, and I pioneered and co-captained the tennis team since my first semester at the UoG! I have had great success with students with exceptionalities such as ASD, ADHD, OCD, Anxiety, and Dyslexia and I attribute that to my own diagnosis and personal experiences with ADHD and anxiety. I would be more than happy to help you out and reinvigorate the passion for learning together! Please let me know if I can be of any assistance.
