Employment History

I began teaching at T.R.U. (formerly U.C.C.) in May of 2001 after having taught in Vancouver, Mexico, and Prince George.

Courses Taught

My current areas of teaching are grammar, reading, writing, oral communication, and pronunciation at the lower intermediate, intermediate, and advanced levels. I also teach in the TESL program. In my classes, I like to act as a guide and facilitator, allowing students the opportunity to discover and explore the English language as much as possible.
