About Tutor

I was born in Trinidad & Tobago and migrated to Canada when I was much younger. I LOVE TEACHING! I've been doing it now for over 20 years! I really enjoy helping persons get better at anything they want to do! My favorite hobbies are singing and cycling.
I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Their names are Collin, Stephen, Stephon, Sylon, Karen and Onika.
One of the biggest challenges I've ever faced was trying to speak another language in another country!


I have been teaching for about 30 years mainly English, and to persons in person as well as to persons who already spoke the language but didn't know how to write the language. For about 2 years now i've moved on to teaching English online and I have been doing so with 3 different companies.

Teaching Approach

My goal is seeking a teaching position, teaching English as a second language. What makes me a high quality online ESL teacher? I have extensive experience teaching both children and adults, for more than 20 years and I have skills and experience teaching English for over 2 year.? What is my approach to teaching? I believe everyone in the classroom contributes as a student, teacher, and thinker, so I learn from students as much as they learn from me.
