I am a highly qualified and very friendly native English speaking Canadian who strives to create the best environment for her students to learn English. I have lived and taught in Japan and France (and speak those languages too!) In Japan, I have taught at the YMCA, Toyama University, and the College of Foreign Languages. In Paris, I have worked at the Sorbonne, various French universities, the British Council and the University of London. I am a reliable, professional, conscientious instructor who endeavors to tailor lessons to suit the individual needs and interests of each of my students. Most of all, I am lighthearted, fun and student-centered. These qualities help make my classes most enjoyable and hence quite productive. I am looking forward to meeting and helping you easily and painlessly attain your goals in English.
