Brian Breivik

Brian BreivikMy name is Brian Breivik. I am a Canadian expat, and have lived overseas since 1992. I currently reside on a tropical island in the Caribbean, called Utila.

I am an experienced and qualified ESL teacher with a British postgraduate teaching licence for teaching English as a Second Language and 28 years’ experience, across levels from young learners to adults. I have significant experience teaching young adult students in preparation for university entrance on foundation and diploma courses in tertiary education, as well as preparing students to sit the IELTS exam. Recently, I have worked as an English teacher trainer on a government education project with an international school in Beijing, while also completing an MEd at Athabasca University.

Currently, I am really enjoying teaching English, while also working as Distance Education faculty at a German University.

In my free time, I love creative writing, photography and travel. I am also re-visiting my Spanish, which I had not used much for 17 years! I love the language and chatting with the locals in Spanish and learning about their pirate-heritage. Utila is a fascinating island!
