Over the past 20 years, I have taught students of all ages, from elementary and high school through university and beyond! As a teacher certified by the Ontario College of Teachers, my Primary Qualifications are for teaching Intermediate-Senior French and English. I have also completed a Specialist in Special Education as well as English as a Second Language (ESL) and French as a Second Language (FSL) Additional Qualifications. After earning with my Bachelor of Arts degree with a French major from from Wilfrid Laurier University, I worked as a television researcher with the CBC in Toronto before raising my two sons. I received my secondary school teaching certification from D’Youville College in Buffalo, NY and my post-graduate Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CERTESL) from the University of Saskatchewan. Now that my kids have grown into university graduates and enterprising young adults, I am ready to commit to helping others to succeed.
Sonia was born in Mexico, she got a Bachelor degree in archaeology from the Universidad Veracruzana in Mexico. Before that she completed an ESL program in Renison College (University of Waterloo), and worked as an English private tutor for children and teens. That helped her to understand the learning and teaching of a different language, and the difficulties a student could run into and how to make the experience easier.
She kept on working as a teacher assistant on the field as an archaeologist for a few years, at the same time she was an English, History and Methodology High School teacher, where she also was a group counselor. That got her interested in teaching, and how children are taught. She obtained a Masters in Education with a specialty in Methodology of Teaching, focusing on different ways to approach students according to their interests and personalities.
She is currently completing a second Masters in Latin American and Caribbean Studies in the University of Guelph, where she was working as a Spanish Teacher assistant, and where she also got a teaching certificate from.
Her priority is making the subject an easy and fun topic for her students, in order to get them interested in learning and achieve success.
I have always been drawn to education. As a student, I was able to experience the confidence and motivation that a passionate teacher can instill upon a learner; it has been my goal to be able to provide that to my students.
I graduated from Brock University in June 2015 from the Concurrent Education program. I hold a Bachelor of Education in the Intermediate/Senior division along with a Bachelor of Arts Honours degree in the Dramatic Arts and English- this qualifies me to teach grades 7-12.
Since graduating I have been teaching English, as well as practical theatre courses, full time in England for the past two years. My Dramatic Arts background allows me to bring an engaging and interactive approach to studying a text! My time in the UK challenged me to diversify my differentiation skills in order to ensure every student in my class could access the material- regardless of ability. Learning is not a straight path and sometimes a unique approach is required.
I am excited to be working with Beyond the Classroom and hope to pass on my passion for learning to those I meet!

I graduated from Brock University with an undergraduate degree in Child and Youth Studies with Honours in 2014, and completed my Bachelor of Education for the Primary/ Junior division at the University of Ontario Institute of Technology in 2015. Throughout my teaching experience I have been lucky to work with students of varying abilities. My teaching related experiences include: volunteering for the Halton District School Board for their Leveled Literacy Program working with struggling readers providing them with skills and strategies allowing them to reach their grade level reading. During my undergrad I volunteered at Brock University’s Reading Clinic creating literacy based activities and providing instruction strategies for reading to my client. I currently work for John Knox Christian School in Brampton as well as at Resurrection Christian Academy in Guelph as a Supply teacher. I previously worked for Durham District School Board on their Emergency supply list and for 4 years I worked as an Early Childcare Assistant at Bowmore Child Enrichment Centre in Toronto working with children 2- 6 years of age. Working with children is my greatest passion in life and I am so excited to continue to meet new students and make new relationships with my clients through Beyond the Classroom tutoring company.
Hi! I’m an Ontario Certified Teacher with my Special Education qualification. I have my Masters in English literature, and specialize in high school English tutoring. I am also qualified to teach Social Science and am available for tutoring in that area as well as History. I have a great sense of humour and am great at building rapport with even quiet students. I am particularly passionate about working with students struggling with anxiety/depression.
In my spare time, I love vegetarian cooking, calligraphy, reading, and animals (so pets in the home are no problem for me). I have experience as a private school senior English teacher, as well as experience tutoring for the SATs and for English classes, and experience as a university-level Teaching Assistant. My goal is to make curriculum seem relevant for students- yes, even Shakespeare! – and to help them boost their academic success and overall confidence in learning.
