As the Co-Founder of Level Up Gaming, Lead Designer at Dundas West Games, and Instructor of the Royal Ontario Museum’s highly successful Dungeons & Dragons program, I have over a decade of experience teaching players of all ages the ins-and-outs of role playing games. Through my GM for Hire service, I offer short and long-term in-person tabletop gaming experiences for families and schools throughout the Greater Toronto Area. Gaming sessions with me are inclusive, entertaining, and educational at their core.
If you'd like to try integrating tabletop role playing games into your classroom or host a workshop/gaming session in your home, get in contact with me! Experience and play are at the heart of using tabletop games in educational contexts. The seemingly insignificant practice of gathering around a gaming table can have huge impacts on learning outcomes – where participants are provided with a safe and reflexive space to explore their identities, their strengths and weaknesses, and to take risks.
Sessions are generally scheduled for 3 hours and are priced at $30 per participant (with a minimum group cost of $120). Groups can be up to 6 people. Larger parties can be accommodated by an extra GM provided by me. Timing is flexible and all materials are provided. No experience necessary!
