Continuing Lecturer | Learning Outcomes Project Co-ordinator

After obtaining my Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, I worked as an English as a Foreign Language (EFL) teacher/instructor for 11 years, mostly on the high school or university level, with students at the ages between 15 and 19 or older. During this period, I realized that adolescents and adults are two groups to whom I can relate well. After moving to Ontario, I had my credentials recognized by World Education Services (WES), and then I took a couple of courses to receive the Ontario Teacher certificate. I also earned the Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) Canada and TESL Ontario certificates. My teaching career in Ontario started with community appointments in Kitchener and Cambridge, as a result of which I had a chance to work with diverse ethnic and age groups of immigrants. The subsequent appointments on the academic level provided me with some opportunities to work with University of Waterloo students in Conestoga College and Renison University College. These contracts enabled me to experience a more challenging but at the same time a more satisfying work environment. After a few years, Renison University College became my sole place of employment, where since 2010, I have taught both credit and non-credit English as a Second Language / English for Multilingual Speakers (ESL / EMLS) courses.
