Hi, I'm Jane.
I'm passionate about helping kids thrive, academically and personally.
My mission is to help students find their direction, and build their passions and strengths.
I love supporting kids & teens as they discover who they are, and how to achieve their goals.
In my work, I use a student-centred approach; I encourage parents to be supportive role models who inspire and guide their kids to launch fulfilling and impactful lives.
Over twenty-five years in my roles as teacher, coach, guidance counsellor, school administrator, volunteer, and parent have taught me ways to encourage perseverance, good work habits, motivation, self-efficacy, and self-advocacy in students -- among other things.

Specialist qualifications in Guidance Counselling, Physical and Health Education, and Principals’ Qualifications.
Member, in good standing, of the Ontario College

Experienced teacher, coach, guidance counsellor, administrator, and parent volunteer, since 1993.
Working part-time in the elementary public, private, and independent school systems, maintaining a ‘finger-on- the-pulse.”
Parent of teenagers in the system, which provides another valuable perspective.
Engaging Jane Kristoffy was the best decision we could have made regarding our daughter’s admission process to the independent school system. Coming highly recommended, Jane’s professionalism, dedication and in-depth knowledge of school systems were immediately apparent. Not only did she prepare our daughter for the application process, exams and multiple interviews, more importantly she became an educational mentor to our daughter by helping her develop scholastic skills that will benefit her throughout her educational journey. We strongly recommend Jane to any family looking to engage an educational consultant. We know we made the right decision choosing Jane, as our daughter attends her first choice independent school. And, we are now using Jane’s help to prepare for the university application process. Again, thank you Jane!
