About Me

I am a professional, certified English language teacher and teacher trainer from Canada with 13 years experience. I have a DELTA diploma from Cambridge University, a Canadian linguistics degree, and a certificate in teaching the IELTS exam.

I have taught in Japan, China, Mexico, Brazil and Saudi Arabia, as well as Canada and the USA. I am currently the academic director of a language institute in Austin, Texas, in the USA. I have worked five years in universities, most recently in Halifax, Canada, where I was a teacher trainer. Before that was as a supervisor of the English program of a medical university in Saudi Arabia. I supervised around 20 instructors who taught an institution of around 500 students.

English is my native language, but I also speak several other languages, including Spanish, Mandarin and French.
