About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Students Award Ceremony

Thank you for your interest in the Kumon Math & Reading Centre of Cambridge South. It is my utmost pleasure to welcome you.

My academic journey began with Bachelors of Science in Biochemistry and Biotechnology degree from the University of Waterloo. During my undergraduate program, I worked as a Teaching Assistant for Biology and Chemistry courses. This inspired me to pursue my career in Cancer Biology. In 2007, I graduated with a Masters degree from the University of Waterloo. Since my graduation, I have worked with several Professors at the University of Waterloo as a Research Associate, Lab Manager and as a Quality Control Manager. In each of these positions, my role interacted greatly with undergraduate students in assisting them in various areas of study, and physically training them with laboratory techniques gradually built up my interest in the education field.

My encouragement and inspiration towards education is a vital importance to me and to my family. I then decided to pursue my career in education by opening my own Kumon Centre. I have two children who have attended Kumon for the past 7 years and I am amazed by the progress, confidence and motivation they have gained by adapting and working with the Kumon Method. Through Kumon, students become more confident, independent and self-reliant people.

I want your child to gain the most knowledge possible from our after-school program and use its method effectively throughout his or her academic and professional career. I look forward to getting acquainted with you and working with your child in a most effective and professional manner. I want to follow the Kumon Mission by being a small part in developing a brighter community. I am excited to work with the families of Cambridge, by not only assisting and inspiring them to learn but also keep them motivated with the goal of achieving success on their own.

Please contact me with any questions you may have or visit me personally at your convenience. My contact number is 519-623-5515 or via e-mail: [email protected].
