Instructors should anticipate and respond to learning differences with expertise and compassion. I believe teachers should encourage students to study diligently and to expect excellent results.
I hold a Doctor of Philosophy Degree from the University of Toronto, as well as an Honours, Masters of Arts in English, and teaching certifications in both British Columbia and New Zealand.
I have been a teacher ever since 1972, teaching all ages and subjects. Most recently, I have taught ESL for students in grades eight to university level.
I am an artist, professional musician, and organic farmer in my free time. My wife and I serve as volunteers for the SPCA, Seniors’ Homes, and our local social services agency.
