MBA Graduate, High-tech professional from Waterloo, ON helping you perfect your English

Methodology

I believe as an English teacher it is important to cater the course content to the areas where the student can use the most assistance. The first step will be to determine the areas where the student(s) can use the most help and then design lessons that help improve those areas.
Lessons will involve roleplay, informal conversation, in-class assignements, and group-work where applicable.

Background

I am a Senior Quality Assurance Manager with over 20 years of experience in High Tech companies. I have an honours degree in Management from Athabasca University and an MBA from Wilfrid Laurier University (with a specialization in Innovation and Entrepreneurship.)
