I was born and raised in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. My brother and sister have lived there all their lives but I have lived in Korea for 6 years and Malaysia for 3 years. I have two cats, one from each country (and they still can't speak English). I spend a lot of time customizing my bicycles and riding them around town. I'm into pure electronic music as well and have composed a bit myself. I'm always looking for some exciting new hobby and so far I've tried paragliding, skydiving, unicycling, juggling, street performing, boomerang making, and others. I enjoy learning from and teaching other people. As they say, "You are what you eat"... and what you learn.

I finished high school in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan and then took one year off to travel and do some street performing in Canada and the US. Then I went back to study engineering. Later I returned to University and got my degree in education. Since then I have taken a few different courses in teaching English as a second language. Overall though, my biggest teachers have been life itself, friends and family, and my own ceaseless internal dialogue on various parts of life.

After teaching many subjects in middle school and high school for one year in Tramping Lake Saskatchewan, I started teaching ESL. My ESL career began in Seoul, Korea, where I spent 2 years. This was followed by 2 years in Busan and 2 more in Changwon. I experienced the different moods of a huge city, a big city, and a small city.

 I also taught ESL in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, where the students were from many countries. Here I also taught other teachers in 2 TESL courses.

Here in Canada I taught English to new Canadians in Calgary. In my 5 1/2 years in Victoria, my students have been all ages and in numbers from 1 to 15. The tutoring has been in Math, Science, English, as well as ESL.

Each student I have taught has taught me something in return. I am grateful for the opportunities I have had.
I can tutor Math up to 12 with the exception of logarithms (my Achilles' heel), Science up to and including 10, Physics up to and including first or second year university, English up to and including 11 or 12, and proofreading and editing most types of writing at most levels.

Jay works through anything

I've struggled with math for a long time, and lack the necessary building blocks required to learn math. Jay has been able to help me overcome my fear of math and work through the obstacles by explaining the steps clearly & in a way I can understand.
