Barbara J. Waldern - writer, educator, language & culture specialist

I am an instructor of English as a foreign language, and an author of fiction and non-fiction. To sum up, I have knowledge in education, cultural change and language as well as social policy. I am thus able to teach, write, report, edit, research, organize, analyze, and advise.
Besides many years of teaching ESL/ EFL and work in public services and social fields, my credentials include a Bachelor of Arts with a French major and English minor, plus a diploma in social policy issues and a Masters of Arts degree in social anthropology. My high-level writing and analytical skills complement my abilities to teach, research, comment on policy and change, advise on career planning, and take in and make sense of qualitative data.
A former long time ESL instructor for adults in Canada, I was an  Assistant Professor in the English Division at the Busan University of Foreign Studies in Korea from March, 2009 to February, 2017. I am now working at Horizon Academy in Vancouver, Canada. I updated my TESL/TEFL certificate in 2008. Also, I have been a professional part-time editor of translations for four years and a writer of fiction and non-fiction (e-pubs). In fact, I am currently taking editing courses. 
I have volunteered for over 20 years in various community and social causes. Most recently, I have assisted fellow teachers living abroad with employment and settlement concerns.
