About Me


Lori in I got my Bachelor of Education degree in the USA but was born and raised in Canada. Working in Asia and with immigrant adults and children for 22 years has given me insights into the difficulties they face in a new country and school system.

I love to help children learn English, develop skills, and gain confidence to succeed in school and life.

IDEAS


“Don't aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it.

I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run—in the long-run, I say!—success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it” ― Viktor E.
