About me: I live near UBC (Broadway + Arbutus). Though I still teach part time, primarily I work from home so my schedule is flexible. I'm usually just a phone call/text away.
I've traveled quite a bit and worked with students from a wide variety of cultures and language groups. So I'm empathetic to your needs if you were not born in Canada. I'm friendly and easy to work with.
Experience: I've taught ESL for 27+ years in universities, colleges, and private language schools. Academic English was my focus for much of that time. I've also tutored Native English speaking students in essay writing (Kwantlen Learning Centre).
As an instructor of essay writing, I edited hundreds of essays over the years. I developed strong skills over the years. So I can tell you at once if your essay is written effectively and if not how you can remedy that.
Grammar has played a major role in my teaching. I can help you kick to the curb any roadblocks grammar may have created in your life.
