Meet your Academic Skills Instructor at Champlain
I am the College Academic Skills Instructor. In this role, I work with students to help them refine and improve the academic skills required to achieve success at university. These academic skills range from learning how to use the dreaded comma correctly to developing critical thinking and analysis abilities. I have a keen interest in understanding how students learn and in providing students with the resources and information they need to succeed. I find the role of Academic Skills Instructor to be extremely rewarding, especially when a student’s new skill is applied and results in improved confidence and satisfaction.
Holding a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and a Master of Arts in Canadian Studies and Indigenous Studies, I am privileged to have completed both my undergraduate and graduate education at Trent University. Before joining the Champlain College team, I enjoyed working as a Teaching Assistant and Course Instructor for the Trent School of Business. In my spare time I enjoy reading Canadian fiction, knitting socks, walking in the woods, and paddling on the water.
