bio:
Clear native Canadian English speaker with a cheerful, fun and creative style. Tailored, easy lessons yet challenging and motivating, using general conversation and literary tools to build confidence in speaking. Enjoy helping you get ready for exams, interviews, preparing business materials or for public speaking.
what should you expect from my classes:
To begin, let's find out what English assets and deficiencies you have, then we will make a program together. Foreign speakers often need help with TH and Past Tense usage. Promise to make learning fun and simple, building up confidence and interest and then get into some challenging tasks as you progress. Love conversation on just about any topic so finding your passion is key to enjoyment here.
my teaching background:
Been teaching English for 10 years sporadically. Although, having a strong background in technical and business communication, main skills are helping improve pronunciation and challenging students with homonyms, tongue twisters and introduction to what makes up 50% of English... Latin and Greek!
my background outside of teaching:
Motivated by a big interest in etymology, (word history) and the study of cultures and their relationship with phonology, (sound study), while traveling and living through this miracle of a planet, has made for some colorful adventures that are sure to interest you as share our stories.

3 unique facts about me

  • Setup English classes in the countries of Panama, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru and Brazil. Learning new languages by living in the countries and teaching has been a great and very rewarding ongoing cultural experience.
  • Foremost, a sailor, nature lover and adventure seeker. Previously a computer consultant and administrator for a bioinformatic gene sequencing company. Not a wonder, the Commodore 64 and sail boats, like the Chinese Junk rigs make for feverish interest.
  • 1 Year teaching on Langu to help satisfy that thirst for traveling and living around the world. Currently focusing on a favorite as you can see, South America. Your lessons help make this dream possible.
