About me

Introduction Miss. Currie has been teaching English as a Second Language for over two years. Upon her return to Vancouver, BC she has held teaching contracts with several large corporations and has taught small business owners, primary and post-secondary students. She is skilled at teaching learners from language backgrounds such as Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese and Korean, French, Russian and Spanish. Her experience in China was invaluable as she adapted to a work environment where she had limited knowledge of the native language. As a result, Ms. Currie developed an understanding of the barriers that face a non-native English speaker, such as pronunciation, listening skills and comprehension. Through this understanding, she is successful at designing lessons that effectively target methods to overcome these challenges. Ms. Currie has obtained her post-secondary education from Capilano College and Malaspina University-College. She holds a background in speech-arts, theatre and acting for film & television.
