Some clients require support not easily placed in traditional categories, illustrated in the following examples:
6-month intensive, residential academic and social support position to help a struggling university student get back on track. Guided him to internalize best learning practices and study strategies in order to maintain high levels of academic achievement, without sacrificing personal well-being. We prioritized healthy grocery shopping and cooking, regular work outs and time to pursue extracurricular interests and socializing.
Chaperone for a group of North American students traveling through Cuba, with a focus on cultural appreciation and best practices for beginner travellers.
A Japanese student required language and cultural support transitioning to his new school in Canada. I prioritized experiential learning, planning and implementing age-appropriate excursions with a pre-excursion lesson and post-excursion debrief. We focused on developing his confidence and capacity to interact with a variety of people, with proper etiquette, in his new environment.
