Our Teachers

I have worked with families and individuals of all ages for over 38+ years as a teacher, facilitator, instructor, advocate, counselor, and entertainer. I lived and taught English in Vietnam from 2013 to 2018. Since returning to Canada, I have taught English online to children, teens, and adults of all skills from basic English courses, IELTS preparation, conversational English, and English for businesses such as Heineken, tour companies, and government officials. I am now proud to be a part of Infusion Edutainment’s ESL Teaching Team.

 I have been teaching ESL for 6 years now. After teaching in Xi’an, China in 2009, I came back to my native Toronto to earn a BA in Cultural Studies from York University. Shortly after, I went to Seoul, Korea where I spent 3 amazing years. In 2019, I moved to Victoria and am currently pursuing a Masters in TESOL from Trinity Western University.
