Learning English should be fun! Let me help you improve your skills.

Methodology

Learning English should be fun! Over the years, I have gained a variety of techniques that help me assess and adapt to the unique needs of every level and type of learner. This approach helps the the student build confidence and become a better learner.

Background

With over 20 years of experience in education, I love teaching students how to become independent learners. I have taught all levels from elementary to university in both Canada and the USA. I have also taught English as a Second Language to learners from around the world. I have a Master's in Special Education.
