currently a professor 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
A former long time ESL instructor for adults in Canada, I have been an Assistant Professor
in the English Division at the Busan University of Foreign Studies since March,
2009. I updated my TESL/TEFL certificate in 2008. Also, I have been
a professional editor of translations for Language Park on a part-time basis
for three years. 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.
