I am an educator with broad experience. I've taught public school (all grades from four to twelve) and was vice principal or principal of various public schools. I was also principal of a private school. I was a volunteer international development worker with the World University Service of Canada, and I've taught at universities in three countries.

I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English and Philosophy, a Bachelor of Education, a Master of Arts (Ed.) in Curriculum Development, and a Doctor of Education in Reading Education.

I developed and taught English and study skills courses at an international university in Japan, where I was a tenured professor. I've now written five books on study skills and produced on-line study skills and English courses.

My poetry has been published in literary magazines and anthologies and I have published five books of poetry, as well as a novel.

Thank you for considering joining my courses. I'm excited at the prospect of sharing my knowledge with you. Sincere best wishes in all your endeavours.
