If you want to speak and write well in ENGLISH, I can help!

Methodology

As a teacher, MY FIRST PRIORITY IS TO INSTIL KNOWLEDGE THAT IS PRACTICAL, knowledge that can help you reach your goals. To do this, I use a variety of media, real-world examples, humour, and various forms of evaluation. First and foremost, LEARNING SHOULD BE ENGAGING AND FUN! If it's not, you won't enjoy it, and you won't recall what you learn. My teaching methods make concepts "stick" in your mind.

Background

Having undergraduate degrees in PSYCHOLOGY (BA Hons.) and NURSING (BScN) as well as a Masters degree in SOCIAL WORK (MSW), I've learned how to communicate in ENGLISH incredibly well. I write excellent essays, and I can teach you how to do this, too. Whatever your ENGLISH needs, I'm certain I can help you! I know how to thrive in academia.
