Graham Ferrige
BEd, BSc University of Alberta
Foothills Board of Education – Highwood High School (26 years)

At RTD we are lucky to have three of the most effective Bio teachers in the province lead our Calgary reviews. Graham Ferrige also brings a wealth of experience to his reviews, being an long-time head exam marker and author of countless Bio 30 diploma questions.

Graham graduated from the University of Alberta in 1993 and has been teaching biology ever since. Developing an appreciation of science and a love of learning in his students is a priority for Graham. He teaches in High River, where he lives with his wife and their two daughters. When not teaching, Graham can be found fishing on the Highwood River or freediving (swimming under water for as long a possible on one breath of air).

Ioan Matthews

Ioan Matthews has over 16 years teaching experience in the sciences and has a real passion for teaching biology. He received his B. ED and B. SC at the University of Calgary. Currently Ioan teaches biology at Springbank Community High School in Calgary. In recent years he has been involved in item writing and review sessions for the Biology Diploma exams and thoroughly enjoys doing the diploma prep course for RTD. In the summer months Ioan looks forward to golfing and fishing with his two boys.
