Experience:

I am a university graduate (Master of Business Administration) and business consultant with extensive experience coaching and training business leaders in communications and strategy. I am transitioning into an active teaching role, applying my business education and background to teaching business and professional English to adult learners. My preferred placement is universities, colleges, professional and technical schools, and business organizations.

As a professional writer and business consultant with over 30 years of experience coaching and supporting business and professional persons, I believe that I can bring a wealth of experience and knowledge to your language learners. I am excited about applying my skills and experience as an adult ESL teacher. The coaching, mentoring, and presentation skills that I developed through my management consulting work with the government of Canada and with my private clients, empower and inspire my language education work with business and professional learners. I leverage that consulting experience to help adults achieve their career and life goals through enriched English language skills.
