I’m Pamela Young (she/her), a reading and writing educator and coach with over 30 years of experience helping adolescents and young adults to become skillful and engaged readers and writers.
My business is located in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, on Treaty 6 territory, the traditional lands of the Metis, Cree, Saulteaux, Blackfoot, Dene, and Nakota Sioux. I acknowledge and respect the many ways in which the histories, languages, cultures and teaching practices of these Nations continue to enrich our community and help children to grow and flourish.
I work with youth either in person in the Edmonton, Alberta, Canada area or online via Google Meet. I specialise in working with teenagers between 12 and 18 who struggle with, dislike, or are bored by the reading and writing assignments they receive at school.
I especially welcome students who identify as neurodivergent, 2SLGBTQ+, and BIPOC.
As a certified teacher, I hold a Bachelor of Education is secondary language arts. I also have a master’s and Ph.D. in education which focus on teaching reading and writing.
The strategies I share with young people are individualized to address their needs, and based on research and practical experience about what really works to increase their writing and reading skill and engagement.
