I am delighted to be the new owner of the Hamilton Oxford Learning Centre! With 7 years of Human Resources experience, I love working with people and helping them reach their full potential.
My love of teaching stems from over 15 years of working with children and adult learners. I have a Master’s degree in Sociology from Lakehead University and I am TESL certified. I have also recently completed my certificate in Adult Education. I am a pet lover who enjoys spending time with my family & friends, reading mystery novels and watching basketball games.
As I will be at the Centre quite often, please introduce yourself! I would love to meet you and hear how Oxford Learning has helped your child learn and understand the world around them.
Little Readers and Beyond Tutoring (up to Grade 3)
I am a mature, talented and caring person who loves to make a difference in the lives of young children. I am open-minded, patient and supportive towards other people especially children or those who suffer with disabilities. I have an excellent ability to remain good-humoured and unflappable under pressure. I am a retired teacher with many years of teaching experience and have been the Little Readers Teacher at Oxford Learning for 10 years+. I continue to be amazed at the excitement I see on the faces of young children when they suddenly announce "I know my sounds and I can read."
French and Beyond Tutoring
I joined the Oxford Learning teaching team at the Hamilton centre in November and have benefitted so much from the experience of working with amazing kids! I recently graduated from McMaster University where I obtained an Honours Bachelor's degree in Kinesiology and a Minor in French. I enjoy helping students improve their French language skills in reading and writing, as well as oral communication. My time at Oxford Learning has been rewarding so far and I look forward to continue helping students reach their full potential."
Little Readers and Advantage English
Hi! My name is Rachel Meyers. I'm a 4th year Concurrent Education student. My journey to becoming a teacher so far has been motivating and inspiring. I am continually amazed by students and their potential. I'm dedicated to student success and believe that each child has an innate ability to achieve any academic goal they have. I understand that each student is different and different strategies are needed to ensure that success and achievement. Through the programs provided by Oxford Learning, and my own expertise in subject areas, I look forward to watching every student improve as a learner!
Hello! My name is Daniel and I am a graduate of Charles Sturt University in Bathurst, New South Wales, Australia with a Bachelor of Education degree. I graduated in 2014 and supply taught in Australia in 2014/2015. I have experience teaching Kindergarten to Grade 6 in schools. I love teaching at Oxford Learning and being able to do my part in student learning and development. Teaching is a passion of mine and am very lucky to have this professional development and learning new things in Canada. Outside of teaching, I like cooking and spending time with friends and family. I also like to listen to music, travel and visit other countries and watch sports. But Rugby League is the greatest game of all!

Elizabeth Rawlin has had a dream of becoming a teacher since she was three years old. She is now making that dream a reality by completing her undergrad degree and teaching degree in the concurrent education program at Laurier and Nipissing Universities in Brantford, and will be graduating in June 2016. Elizabeth has also been teaching dance both recreationally and competitively for seven years, giving her great experience working with a variety of ages. Elizabeth has completed three placement blocks in Hamiltonian schools through her university program, including a French placement in her second year. Elizabeth has been a part of the Oxford Learning community for about a year and a half.
Advantage English and Math
Teaching has always been a passion of mine. What drew me to Oxford Learning was their emphasis on cognitive skill development; being there to guide students as they problem solve, and discover how they learn best, is why I love teaching. I am in my final year in Brock University’s Concurrent Education program. I specialize in Mathematics and English at the Intermediate/Senior level and graduate with my BSc (Hons) and BEd this spring. I am excited to work closely with students as they develop study skills that will prepare them for a lifetime of learning!
Advantage Math and Science
My name is Elizabeth Salvo, and I tutor mainly high school students in math and science subjects at Oxford Learning Center. I am currently completing a Master of Science degree in Chemical Biology at the Biointerfaces Institute of McMaster University. I plan to also complete a PhD in the future. As part of my education, I perform research in the laboratory focused on miniature analytical devices, and am a teaching assistant in university level chemistry courses. In my spare time, I enjoy dancing in ballet and tap styles.
What Some of our Students are Saying About Us...
Oxford Learning is very helpful. This is my second year coming here and I feel I am more confident in my work. I am stronger now in many subjects. Last year I was failing chemistry. I came to Oxford Learning and immediately improved scoring 95% on my next test and finishing the course with an 85%. Oxford Learning has also helped me with French. I now better understand the different parts of speech and how to apply them to my written work. This year I am attending Oxford Learning for assistance in Advanced Functions and Biology and am happy to say that I’m doing well in both classes. What I have most enjoyed about Oxford Learning is the friendly environment, the amount of attention I receive and the improvement I see in my marks and understanding of the subject matter. I’m always encouraging my friends to join. Thank-you! Sarah.B
The staff at Oxford Learning are very friendly and I always feel better about my school work after a session with Erica! She helped me ‘ace’ chemistry and feel more confident. This is my second year attending Oxford Learning and I feel more organized, confident and on top of things. It’s very close by and a great place to come to have your questions answered regarding homework/course material…and the treats are always great of course! Maddy

I enjoy coming to Oxford Learning and would recommend coming here to anyone needing help, regardless of the subject matter. Vanessa.G
Oxford Learning has assisted me in becoming a stronger, more organized writer as I get ready to start high school next year. My tutor has shown me how using a thesaurus and changing a ‘common’ word can improve my paragraph and strengthen the point I was trying to make. Coming to Oxford Learning has also made me aware of how important the editing process is. Henry
The tutors at Oxford Learning understand me and that is what has made the experience here enjoyable. Coming to Oxford Learning has been extremely beneficial to me because unlike school, I feel better knowing you can just ask a person questions that properly understand you.

Coming to Oxford Learning has put my Math and French marks off the charts and also helped me become more organized. Armaan
Oxford Learning is a great place to come if you are experiencing trouble in school. It has helped me to better understand the material I’m working on in school and given great strategies and suggestions on how I can improve. Safwan
