About Me

My name is Connor and I am an online teacher at CAN4U Education. I am currently living in Winnipeg Manitoba and I am very excited to be your new teacher and get to know each one of you. I graduated from the University of Winnipeg where I studied education and english literature and I also have TESOL and TEFL Certification. I've been teaching ESL for over four years. I've first started teaching english from students all over the world who just arrived in Canada. I've also taught at a training school at China for two years. In my classes, I tried to build on the english you've already know and incorporate your interest so the lesson is useful for you. I believe students learn best when they are engaged and the material is relevant to them. I look forward in meeting you and I can't wait to be your new teacher.
