Hi, I'm Tina! I currently live and offer lessons in the Niagara region in Ontario, Canada. Prior to returning to Niagara, I also worked as an ESL educator in cities such as Montreal, Tokyo, and Istanbul.

I have mentored individuals in preparation for university entrance exams, business trips, and work conferences with great success.
I also have a lot of experience teaching young learners, elementary students, and high school students. I love teaching kids, especially through an immersive and communicative approach!
My previous students include:
- school children

All ages are welcome, including young learners and seniors. It's never too late to start - or restart! I am happy to practice anything from conversation to specialized grammar. I truly have a personalized approach and can adapt to your needs. Let's set some goals together!
Perfect! I was always worried that I am not good at English, even though I had been in Canada for a year. Christina's English lessons helped me a lot. I have been taking lessons with her for a month. The class is fun and I am enjoying English. And she is always bright and is very nice. Most of all, my English is improving! I am grateful to her.

She is professional to teach English, and her class was very interesting and fun! She understands about Asian students because she has knowledge about Japan and Korea. I’m Japanese. I haven’t gotten nervous for her class! I enjoyed her class!
Christina was my teacher during the time I was studying at BLI school in Montreal. She is one of the most professional teachers I have ever met- always organized and well prepared for each class. She gives her heart above and beyond her duty for the benefit of the students and she helped me a lot. As well as being knowledgeable and committed, Christina is empathic, enthusiastic, and a good listener which are excellent qualities for teaching! I highly recommend Christina as a teacher because she is very patient and explains very well.
She is always putting in her best for us. She doesn't slack off and works hard for her students. She dots the i’s and cross the t’s. She speaks fluently, so, I believe it was perfect to learn English. It would help to improve our listening skill.
