If you have any questions about the plan, please contact us.
As required by the PHO, an updated version of Momentum Learning's COVID-19 Safety Plan is now provided here.
If you have any questions about the plan, please contact us.
I'm off for a few days (hooray for the weekend!), but will be reviewing all of the new provincial COVID-19 regulations (you can too here) and orders, and updating my policies as required, at some point in time next week.
If there are any major changes that will affect my current clients for our sessions in the upcoming week, I will notify them directly.
For the moment, I'm taking some time to breathe fresh air and do non-work things! I hope you all get to enjoy the sunshine! it's a beautiful day so far!!
A few bits and pieces from the start of the school year!
I have re-opened for some in-person and online sessions with current clients. As there have (and will be) many changes for my highschool clients (especially at Correlieu), I am still expecting it to take some time for my current clients to get settled into a schedule that works for both of us while also accommodating the PHO protocol as a business within an office building.
At the moment I am not taking on new clients until my current ones are comfortably settled into their new schedules. My goal continues to be that at some point in time in this 2020-2021 school year I will be able to take on some new learners!
Access into the building is limited to clients only. Please use the provided methods of Contact on my Contact Us page on the website.
As required by the BC PHO, my Covid-19 Safety Plan is posted on my website (see the Covid 19 tab), my Facebook page, and outside my office prior to any client attending an in-person session.
I hope the first Term, Quarter and Semester goes well for all students!
A few bits and pieces before the school year officially starts!
I will be re-opening for some in-person sessions with current clients starting in September. As there have (and will be) many changes for my highschool clients (especially at Correlieu), I expect it to take some time for my current clients to get settled into a schedule that works for both of us and accommodates all the protocol we will be following. Therefore, I will not be opening up any leftover spaces for new clients at the moment, but hopefully at some point in time in this 2020-2021 school year!

As required by the BC PHO, my Covid-19 Safety Plan will be posted on my website (see Covid 19 above), my Facebook page, and outside my office prior to any client attending an in-person session.
Best wishes for a fantastic start for all those students attending the orientation days later in the week, as well as the students learning from home (hooray for school in your pyjamas!)
🎂Momentum is 9 Years Old!🎂
A big thank you to past and present clients who have been part of my Momentum Family over the past 9 years.
You have helped me, and my business, grow in immeasurable ways. Each one of you I have worked with has helped me learn new skills and for this I am grateful 🤗💓
To all the clients I have yet to meet, I look forward to working and learning with you when the time is right!
Well, it's a bit of a waiting game to see what will happen come the start of school! I'm not sure what to expect either, and so for now I won't be taking on any new students until I get my current ones settled and underway, in whatever mode/method that may be.
My hope would be to have things sorted out by the end of September, and to know if I am able to start working with some new students. However, this is only an educated guess based on my previous Septembers, and as we all know, this one will look a little different in many ways! So, alas.... more lessons on flexibility and pivoting continue :)
In the meantime, here are some handy websites where you can check what is going on locally and provincially! It is also my experience that many organizations update their Facebook pages on a more regular basis than their websites (myself included), so you may want to check out those links first!
Also, for some lightheartedness, look at who was outside my office earlier this week when I was leaving just before it got dark!! Aren't they CUUUUUUUTE?!?!
I am starting down the road of re-opening under these new circumstances, so that in the future I'll be able to adapt to the changing situations.
By the fall I hope to be able to offer some in-person sessions. Before that can happen there are protocol and policies that need to be developed, as well as addressing the physical aspects of my office setup.
At the moment I have started to connect with my current clients. Being creative to find ways I can arrange and carry out effective and helpful online sessions is my first goal! I want to be able to create online sessions that are as close to my in-person sessions as possible so that I can keep the same atmosphere whether we're online or in person. However, I also need to be able to do this on a variety of platforms, as not every family has access to the same technology! Problem solving at its best
Therefore, you will understand that I will not be taking on new clients until I have tested and tried out a variety of ways and methods of working with my clients.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact me by the following methods:
Email - firstname.lastname@example.org,
Messenger - http://m.me/momentumlearningcentre
Facebook - https://www.facebook.com/momentumlearningcentre
and I will do the best to answer your questions or make suggestions!
Our situation, both in education and life, has been changing week to week and I fully expect this to continue. The local school district, and all your wonderful teachers will be spending the next while contacting their families on an individual basis and planning how best to encourage and support learning in each of their students.
I think it is important to allow those changes and transitions to happen, and allow students and their families to discover a routine under these changing circumstances. This will take time, and that is normal and expected in this unprecedented situation. Therefore I am going to allow some time as well to learn myself what is happening in the education community before I discover how best I can apply my creativity and enthusiasm for learning to help my clients and the community.
🌿Current Clients - I have sent you another email update :)
🌿EBUS Invigilation (testing) Students - According to the EBUS website, testing protocols may change depending on the course, so please check each individual course page on or after April 8th.
🌿New Clients - At the moment, I am not taking on any new tutoring clients. Please stay tuned to this page, or my website www.momentumlearning.ca for new information and updates as they come!
The local school district is currently on Spring Break, and they indicated that they would be starting to develop a plan near the end of next week. Teachers will then go back to the schools (without students) on March 30th and plans will be able to develop from there. Once they get things in motion, then I too will be able to figure out how to best help my students!
🌿Current Clients - Please check your emails :) I will re-assess things on April 5th, and then go from there!
🌿EBUS Invigilation (testing) Students - Please read this email here https://ebus.ca/ebus-academy-amends-invigilation-policy/
🌿New Clients - Until I get my current clients settled, which will depend upon what happens in the local school district, I will not know if I will have room to take on new tutoring students.
Most likely my programs and method of delivery will change as well, so please stay tuned to to my Facebook page for any most recent updates
I'm a bit late sharing these pictures, but I'm still thoroughly enjoying the new look!
The 2018-2019 school year ended with tired walls and a tired orangy floor.... time for an office renovation! This is how I spent most of my summer.... painting, adding new flooring and trim (thanks to my talented other half), re-organizing, purging and throwing out!
The result, a more modern room that appears to have more floor space! My students are loving the lighting choices and when they come in, switch whichever lights they want on :D Plus, I'm so happy I have my standing desk as now we don't have to sit all the time either!
