I have over 10 years experience working on summer schools and I look forward to welcoming you to Academic Camp Canada. I believe Academic Camp Canada will offer you a quality summer course with a difference. We offer you a course which will help you to reach for your future both academically and socially. The programme is integrated and focuses around the ethos of the IB Diploma and Advanced Placement which we believe is useful to all students whether or not they are planning to study the qualification in the future. We encourage you to be an independent learner and we help you prepare for your future studies.

I enjoy working in education and I especially like working in the international market and I love meeting people from different cultures. I believe that English is an International language which we all use to communicate. It is exciting when we get together and share our different cultures and experiences. I hope Academic Camp Canada will help students to have this experience. I would be very happy to discuss students' future academic plans with them and suggest appropriate schools and courses for them. I look forward to hearing from you and answering any questions you may have about Academic Camp Canada.

Academic Camp Canada is truly an amazing opportunity for young people to develop many important life skills, explore the beautiful country of Canada and above all have an unforgettable Summer experience! I have been involved with the UK academic summer school for 7 years now, of which 2 years I enjoyed a key role as part of the senior management team in the central London campus. I started working the Summers as a counsellor before University and enjoyed it so much that I have kept coming back! I am now looking after all of the making and running of our camp in Canada and will always be pleased to hear from you and do my best to answer your questions.

Throughout the Summer I will look forward to getting to know you, and you will also learn a few things about me! I have always been passionate about education, I am always looking to learn new skills having previously studied a four year masters degree in international business at Plymouth University. My most proud of achievements include meeting Prince Philip after finishing my gold Duke of Edinburgh Award and completing service with the British Red Cross, Scouting groups and the National Trust across the UK. My favourite achievement was living in France to accomplish one of my life goals to learn a second language just like many our Summer students.. to begin with it was challenging as one time I tried to get the cheque and instead was brought a cup of tea and some fries!! It was a great challenge and although it was difficult to begin with it was an amazing experience. I hope you enjoy everything we offer and tell everyone about the special experience you have had with us.
