Our learners are people you see every day. They are part of our community and, in some way, need assistance and improving their literacy skills. They are the centre of our organization and are the reason we are here.
What does literacy mean for you? It can be anything we want to learn. It does not need to be limited to reading and writing. Of course, it helps to be able to navigate the world we live in. Growing up, it was instilled in my brain that if I did not have an education, I would have difficulties getting ahead in life. As an Asian immigrant, it was the most important thing to achieve - a priority! I believe one should never stop learning. It keeps our brain sharp. I truly believe in literacy, and everyone should have access to it.
My goal in tutoring is to guide people on their path to at a brighter future, and to enhance the quality of their lives. Being a tutor allows me to be creative in helping learners achieve their goals, is fulfilling, and is a great opportunity to share my knowledge and experience.

I just think this place is wonderful. I always get help working things out when I come here. This is such a GREAT service you have and people like me need support when it comes to technology. I take advantage of the Computers for Schools guys that are at Yukon Learn Society on Mondays as well.
Heather has been extremely helpful with my many needs for my iPads and iPhones. It has been a pleasure to work with her and I find sometimes the electronic devices can frustrate me. She has made the journey of my learning curve to be very pleasurable instead of feeling like downward battle. I would recommend Heather to tutor any senior in my position to aid them to overcome their electronic device plights.
