Bio:

I have been working as a licensed Canadian English teacher since 2006 but I have also helped individuals as a volunteer teacher and proofreader since the early 1990s. My general conversation classes are ideal for students who want to focus on improving their skills in casual dialogue. Students are free to discuss any casual topics they choose or have the teacher select one. Often students will have a lesson that combines free talk with an interesting news article.

My teaching methodology:
In business conversation lessons, the student and I collectively define the area for conversation-based classes which often revolve around business units, departments, and divisions within a company such as I.T., H.R., Sales, Marketing, Finance, Accounting, R&D, and others. For IELTS test preparation lessons, I use 100% authentic past test papers for practice. This material is exactly what has been used in real IELTS test centres in countries around the world. I provide mock simulations combined with corrections and student-centric tips and strategies that show exactly how and where students can increase their band scores. With essay writing lessons, I offer the flexibility of using teacher-selected essay topics or student-chosen topics with rigorous editing and revising of drafts which cover the essential elements of essay-style writing as opposed to other writing styles (i.e., articles, reports, stories, letters, poetry). During general conversation lessons, students or the teacher will often bring a topic to class they would like to discuss. At other times, it may be spontaneous: Starting with a simple opener like, "How was your weekend?" or "How's the weather today?" and then leading to any number of unplanned conversational topics. This is often fun and satisfying for both student and teacher.
My teaching background:

Since 2005, I have taught extensive hours to different groups of students. These include IELTS students, Canadian elementary, middle, and high school students (up to university entrance level), junior corporate interns and all the way to senior corporate executives of Asia head office operations as well as general conversational English.

My background outside of teaching:

My professional background includes having worked in 3 departments in British Columbia Children's Hospital. Later, I also worked as Market Coordinator at Zeneca (now known as AstraZeneca) and Customer Service Associate at AT&T (American telecommunications company). At Zeneca, my key responsibility at the regional head office was preparing sales reports and forecasts for countries in Asia markets which were forwarded to global headquarters in London. At AT&T, my key tasks were to resolve problem tickets for all levels of severity by communicating with clients and telecom partners in Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and North America. I was part of the Asia head office team that directly reported to Asia-Pacific headquarters in Sydney, Australia on a daily basis.
