I was born in Dublin, Ireland and moved to Canada in Grade 9. I lived in Pickering, Ontario until Grade 12 and then moved to Niagara-on-the-Lake. I came to London to attend University and I’ve been here ever since :) My background is in teaching with an early childhood specialty. I’ve worked with Oxford Learning in many different capacities since 1999. I’ve been here in Byron since 2004. Oxford Learning is the perfect fit as I get to work with students of all ages. It’s my dream job. In my spare time I love to hang out with my husband and two puppies, read and watch movies. I also love to travel (particularly to Ireland to visit my family). Oxford Learning’s mission is to help students reach their highest potential :) I'm lucky to have such a fun and rewarding career.
I was born in Galt, Ontario. I grew up in several small communities as my father was a bank manager and we were transferred approximately every five years. Places I have lived include: Galt, Drumbo, Chapleau, Teeswater, Mount Forest, Mississauga, Waterloo, Hamilton and finally London. I attended the University of Waterloo and received my Bachelor of Environment Studies with a major in Geography. I was interested in the environment and was inspired by my high school geography teacher. In my spare time I enjoy reading, gardening, spending time at the cottage, canoeing and playing board games. I have worked at Oxford Learning since September 2001. I enjoy working here because I learn something new every day. I also get a great deal of pleasure out of helping students achieve their goals :)
Hi! I'm Katelyn. I was born and raised in London. I attended John Paul II High School and Western University. My degree is in Global Developmental Studies with a minor in Sociocultural Anthropology. Through that program I was fortunate to partake in several volunteer opportunities including: counselling at a summer camp in Negril, Jamaica and working as an afterschool program coordinator in Copan, Honduras. Both experiences taught me the importance of adjusting my teaching strategies to suit each student.
I love working at Oxford Learning. Each student is seen as an individual with different interests and goals. We celebrate every accomplishment!
In my spare time, I enjoy travelling, camping, snowboarding, reading, yoga, scrapbooking and scuba diving. I am working towards my master scuba diving certification, so that someday I can educate others on marine conservation.
I’ve worked at Oxford Learning since 2007. I grew up in London. I attended UWO and received my degree in Biology. I received my Bachelor of Education from the University of Windsor. I have a love of Science and even more, a love of teaching. In my spare time I love watching movies, reading and spending time with family and friends. Working at Oxford Learning is great! We all learn in different ways and Oxford Learning provides an environment where teachers are able to adapt teaching methods and provide information in a way that will benefit each student. Most importantly I love working at Oxford Learning because it gives me a chance to learn from my students. Teachers are always learning, so who better to learn from than my students?
I grew up in London, and went to the University of Western Ontario, where I received my undergrad degree in Medical Sciences and Psychology. I received a Masters degree from Western in Clinical Anatomy, as well as my Bachelor of Education from Althouse. I have always had a love for Science, and teaching, which have contributed to the anatomical education research I am currently working on in my PhD studies. I love teaching because I enjoy seeing a student’s face light up when they understand that difficult concept, or when they are excited about something they’ve just learned. Learning is a lifelong process for everyone, and I learn so much from the students at Oxford Learning. I really enjoy having the opportunity to work with each student, to share my knowledge and help them to achieve their goals. In my spare time I love to read, play the piano, and spend time with my friends and family.
My name is Kathryn, and I have been teaching at Oxford Learning since April 2015, I grew up in London, and went to South Secondary school. I earned my degree in Interdisciplinary Linguistics and English at Western. I have always loved reading and languages, and I love to share that passion with my students. While at Western, I fenced for the varsity team, and was a team captain and team manager. In the summers, I coached and was a counsellor for the fencing camp with Sport Western. I completed my Bachelor of Education at the University of Ottawa.
In my spare time, I like to take my dogs hiking, read, bake, and play board games. I love working at Oxford Learning because it allows me to build connections with students and watch as they make huge leaps in their learning. It is so satisfying to see a student who used to be discouraged by work, start to tackle it with confidence!
I was born in Shawinigan, Quebec, in a bilingual household. My family moved to Stratford, ON when I was 12 yrs old. I studied Kinesiology and French at the University of Waterloo and attended the Faculty of Education at Western University. I have taught Core French for the London District Catholic School Board for 36 years. I retired in June 2016. I have enjoyed inspiring a love for and an appreciation of the benefits of learning a second language to thousands of students.
In my spare time, I love to spend time with my 3 adult children, my son in law, my 2 grandsons Wesley and Matthew and my black lab Jazzy. I love to play golf, tennis, run, go to the gym and read!
I grew up in a small town called Port Colborne (just outside Niagara Falls). I attended the University of Windsor and majored in French and Political Science (with a double minor in Social Studies and Economics). I completed my Bachelor of Education in Windsor too.
I have a passion for language especially French. I grew up in a French speaking household. I have always had an interest in politics.
In my spare time I enjoy volunteering and playing sports! I volunteer with MADD Canada and the MS Society. I've coached boys and girls hockey for 10 years and played since I was 3. I also play roller hockey, softball, rugby, basketball and volleyball.
One of my biggest inspirations was a highschool teacher. I hope that I inspire my students as he inspired me. I love working with students of all ages!
My name is Carolyn. I grew up in Sarnia. I received my degree in English Language and Literature, with an area of concentration in Medieval History from Western University.
I completed my Bachelor of Education in North Bay, where I also learned what -35 degrees feels like!
I have always loved reading and history and enjoy sharing my passion (and the occasional quirky fact) with students. It's such an amazing experience to help a student reach their "aha" moment. I've worked with children in some capacity for most of my adult life, and used to be a Cub Scout leader.
In my spare time I enjoy reading, painting/drawing, and playing wildly competitive board games!
I've always loved learning and expanding my education. I attended London Central Secondary School and Western University, where I earned my degree with a double major in Psychology and Sociology. Throughout my time at Western I volunteered with educational organizations. I was fortunate enough to work with one of my professors conducting research in elementary schools with children who encountered auditory difficulties. My love for learning has only grown!
I have played soccer and piano since the age of 6. In my spare time, I like to cozy up with a good book, go on adventures around my community, and spend time with my family and friends.
I am writing hoping you will remember us. Just wanted to update you and say that Brendan is at Fanshawe College and taking architecture and doing very well at it. He has grades in the 80's (architectural history), architectural math is in the 90's and English is over 75 which is great. Thank you again for giving your advice, your willingness to help my kids, and for all you have done, we all really appreciate it.
- D. Dafoe
We would like to thank you for everything you do. I am proud to report that he was very successful at the time of his Grade 8 graduation. Needless to say we were so proud of the strong foundation that he has created as he goes off to secondary school in September. The purpose of this letter is not only to thank you but also to be a testament to you and your program. We value and appreciate the time he spends with you and he looks forward to going. Once again, thanks so much for your role in our son’s success!
I can't thank you enough for all of your support, encouragement and patience! Matthew loves coming to Oxford Learning and he seems to have formed an especially strong bond with you. He always tells people that he has been going to Oxford Learning for "years" and "my teacher, Liz really gets me." It always makes me laugh and tear up at the same time.
- M. DeRyk
So proud of my son! He has been coming home and attacking his homework like never before. You guys did it! Liz, you helped my son develop great learning skills.
- J. Hart
