My name is Dionne. I am a native English speaker from Toronto, Ontario in Canada. I studied at York University in Toronto where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree in Sociology. I am a Master’s degree candidate in Adult Education. Additionally, I have a post graduate TESOL/TESL diploma and a certificate in being an Early Childhood Assistant.
I have experience teaching and training online and in a traditional classroom. I train teachers to teach English online, but I also train in the field of soft-skills and Accent Reduction. Currently, aside from online instruction, I conduct training seminars in Canada and Jamaica. I instruct ESL teachers, English language learners and retail staff.
I strongly believe that the highlight of my career is incorporating technology and skills training to break barriers. By leveraging the internet, I break the barrier of time and space, as I teach across different time zones to an international audience worldwide. I dub my profession as “Digital Nomad” as I have managed to make the world my office through the web and travel.
During the lessons I deliver, regardless of the topic, I strive to build on the confidence of participants by providing an absolutely comfortable learning atmosphere, filled with fun, humor, warmth while learning. By doing this, participants feel at ease and have a positive learning experience too! Hence, my motto: Learning should be enjoyable.. Smile, Laugh, Learn!
Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me.
