Nice to meet you! I am from a small village in Canada called Chester. During university in Canada, I started tutoring immigrants in my city, who needed to learn English for everyday life. From there, I went on to teach in Moscow, and next, I found myself teaching children online. After completing my education, I started working in a Canadian pathway institute, and then I found you! I also have experience in reproductive medicine.
I am passionate about current affairs, art, and collecting old vinyls! I can’t wait to meet you in our classroom!

Tara Bells

Certificación: TEFL
B.A. – Political Science and Sociology

I was raised in Canada, but have now been living in Mexico for 10 years. I have spent over 20 years working in youth programming from summer camps and cruise ships, to 8 years in the classroom as an ESL, Language Arts, History, and Literature teacher. Most recently I have switched to online teaching, and have 3 years experience in that area.
I love to travel. Since I worked in tourism I have now been to over 36 countries, and can’t wait to experience many new countries and cultures in the future as the world begins to open up again. In my free time I enjoy cooking, spending time with my friends, exploring new beaches, doing TRX, and reading.
I look forward to meeting all of my new students with the Canaway Academy!

Nadine Strudensky

Certificación: TEFL
B.A – Education: Specialization in Teaching

I was born and raised in the beautiful city of Montreal, Quebec in a trilingual household of French, English and Spanish. Growing up, I knew that my calling would be a language teacher. Not only because I would never stop talking and try rhyming every word, but also because every day I would spend a minimum of 30 mins teaching my dolls and stuffed animals their verb tenses and how to tell a story.
As I grew older, the love of teaching English only expanded and deepened. I went on to Concordia University and received an B.Ed in Education, specializing in Teaching English as a Second Language. I then started working for various language schools, elementary and high schools. With each passing year, I learnt new teaching methods and language skills to help my students improve their language and communication skills.
My main interests: Traveling, working out, yoga and walking my dog.
I can’t wait to meet you all! 🙂

Madeline Torres

Certificaciones: TESOL y TEFL
B.A – Elementary Education

Hello there! I have been teaching for over 7 years both online and classroom. I stopped teaching for a while and found myself going back to what I really love to do and that is teaching. They said, “Once a teacher, always a teacher. No matter where you go or what you do, you can never truly get out of teaching!
“I believe that a classroom should be a safe, caring community where children are free to speak their mind and blossom and grow.
I love traveling and dream of traveling the world before I retire 🙂
Hope to see you in my class

Instructores Canaway Private School

Camille Dube

English & Social Science
Academic Coordinator

Currently I live in Kingston, Ontario, Canada.
I´m originally from a small town in rural Alberta, where I grew up on a farm and enjoyed the rural way of life. However, my passion has always been teaching. Thus I made a move to “the big city” of Edmonton, Alberta, where I obtained my Bachelor’s Degree in Education with a major in Humanities and a minor in Spanish from the University of Alberta.
Throughout the years I have worked in multiple capacities within the field of education such as a tutor in my younger years, and inclusion support coordinator at the post-secondary level for students with developmental disabilities, and as a full-time High School English and Spanish teacher. I thrive in my current position with Canaway because it allows me to connect with students and share my passions for language and learning.
In addition to my Bachelor’s Degree and OCT certification, I am currently pursuing my eLearning Development diploma.

Colleen Moore

Currently I live in North Bay Ontario, Canada.
After growing up in North Bay, I studied physics at the University of Waterloo before attending Queen’s University to obtain my Bachelor of Education.
I have spent 25 years as a self-employed tutor, specializing in secondary math and science in the Ottawa area, helping hundreds of students obtain their academic goals. Through her many years of experience, I have gained a thorough knowledge of the Ontario math and science curriculum and the challenges it presents for students.
My broad experience in both coaching and teaching adolescents has allowed me to hone my communication and motivational skills, enabling me to provide support for each student to succeed.
