My children have recently started college and university and thus I have suddenly become an ‘empty nester.’ Le temps passe vite! While my main residence is in the Laurentians--Mont-Tremblant--I recently moved into a pied-a-terre in Montreal so I could have access to the cultural activities of the city. I am currently taking a professional hiatus.
o I am 55-yr old male living in downtown Montreal. I have two children, a 20-yr old daughter and a 19-yr old son, who are currently studying in college and university. My daughter is in CEGEP at Dawson, my son is at McGill University.Both are graduates of St. Georges High School in Westmount.
o I’ve spent most of my life in NY, but lived in LA, Houston, have traveled extensively and have a broad knowledge of different cultures. I have dual citizenship--in Canada and the US.
o I have 20+ years of experience as a senior executive in the marketing-communications field and 12+ years’ experience as a real estate asset manager.
o Each student has a unique learning style. Some are very visual oriented, others are more text oriented, while some are verbally oriented. I believe customizing the teaching to the learning style of each student is paramount. Another important factor is demonstrating how the curriculum relates to real life problems and situations.
o I am a creative thinker, and believe teaching is about guiding a student to be independent, and to love learning. Every student is unique and the teaching style should be customized to the student’s unique learning style.
o I enjoy creating interesting ways to make learning enjoyable and effective. For example, I have an interest in “mind-mapping” and believe it can be a great study tool. I also believe music can be used effectively as a memorization technique.
o I am a fluent native Anglophone with a basic to intermediate knowledge of French.

I am including the many years I have tutored my own 2 children, who are both currently successful students studying at Dawson College and McGilll University.
I tutored elementary school aged students while attending high school. And I tutored high-school aged students, part-time, the entire 3-years while attending Columbia University in the city of New York.
I have have tutored a variety a very wide variety of subjects, including: English, Literature, Math (Arithmetic, Geometry, and Statistics), History, Psychology, Business, Economics, Sociology, Geography , and the Arts.
I have a good temperament for this kind of work. I would welcome the opportunity to do this again in order to keep myself busy and productive. And, most important, I find this kind of work tremendously rewarding.
