Having successfully taught English and History for forty years at all age levels from the elementary school to university and adults, I am well qualified to produce educational videos on a number of subjects. Currently instructing E.S.L. at the university level in Montreal, Canada, I have had students from a diversity of national and ethnic backgrounds and so much enjoy meeting people from around the world. I am still in communication with students from years ago and many have become life-long friends. The importance of fostering personal growth and inspiring education cannot be underestimated and it gives me much joy to use my experience for that goal. My travels through North America, Europe, the Caribbean, and parts of Asia have inspired to continue my teaching career using a different medium outside of the regular classroom. How may I be of service to you?
