Meet Glorie (she/her)

A trusted guide and mentor for your academic journey.

Who I am

My joy is seeing students succeed. When I saw students struggling during the pandemic, I began offering academic strategizing to help them make their academic climb. I have worked with all kinds of students. Increasingly, I have worked with neurodivergent students, students whose brains work a little differently than their peers.

I am neurodivergent myself. After being immobilized by bipolar disorder and the stigma associated with mental illness, I left a doctoral program to heal. And learn. And grow. And struggle, at times. And be well. And succeed. It’s all part of the climb – the growth and the challenges.

Teaching at the University of Saskatchewan on Treaty 6 Territory and working with students have helped me thrive. And strategizing with individual students – to help them have the tools to succeed academically – brings me great joy.

With 20 years of undergraduate teaching experience and 2 teaching awards—a Students’ Union Teaching Award in 2012 and the Sylvia Wallace Sessional Lecturer Award in 2018— I feel I have earned the respect of my students and peers. I have learned – and continue to learn – so much from my students.

Credentials & Experience

With a Master of Arts (M.A.) in English and a Master of Education (M.Ed.), both from the University of Saskatchewan, I have taught introductory courses for the U. of S. in the following colleges:

$

Literature Module of Medical Humanities for the College of Medicine

Business Communications for the College of Engineering and Edwards School of Business

$

Legal Writing for the College of Law

$

First year English classes and Women’s and Gender Studies for the College of Arts & Science

I have worked with students in a variety of university programs and services:

I also hold a Certificate in Teaching English as a Second Language (CERTESL), which equips me to work with international students who seek help with learning English for academic purposes.

Mental Health Advocacy

I continue to be committed to the health and emotional well-being of students diagnosed with mental illnesses. In 2019, I established the Resilience Awards at the University of Saskatchewan to help undergraduate students who cope with mental health issues.

I am committing 20% of my gross earnings from Summit Academic Coaching to these awards. 

By choosing to be helped and supported by me, you are helping and supporting other students.
