Hello! My name is Jenny. I grew up in the countryside of Ontario, Canada. I have travelled to and lived in many places around Canada and the world. I did my CELTA qualification in Montreal, which is also where I first started teaching. One of my favourite things about teaching is meeting so many amazing people from around the world.
Every student is a unique individual with different interests and specific learning needs. As a teacher, I believe in listening carefully and developing a plan that works best for every student. I have taught adults of all ages and abilities with a focus on a variety of skills, including IELTS preparation courses. I have also taught specialized ESL classes on literature and music. Outside of teaching, I have studied both French and Spanish. Because of my experience as a language learner, I recognize the challenges of learning and using a new language, and am eager to help my students overcome those challenges.
I have a degree in English Language & Literature. There are many different things I love to read, but I spend most of my time reading the news, novels, and poetry. I am fascinated by the English language and its capacity to tell stories in compelling ways. When I’m not teaching, I am busy writing songs and poetry, or performing music.
I look forward to meeting you!
