About Pepper


Bio

Hello!
My name is Pepper and I have been teaching for more than 11 years. I started in this field because I was interested in travel, and wanted to have time with my son while I was in college. As a result, I learned more about people and the importance motivations have on the ability to learn, retain and feel confident communicating and living in the culture of English speaking communities.

Hello!
My name is Pepper and I have been teaching for more than 11 years. I started in this field because I was interested in travel, and wanted to have time with my son while I was in college. As a result, I learned more about people and the importance motivations have on the ability to learn, retain and feel confident communicating and living in the culture of English speaking communities.
In practice, I have taught students from kindergarten, to retirees re-entering the work force. I have experience with cultures and customs from little known provinces, as well as familiarity with the more prominent immigrant and refugee language learning communities.
I enjoy learning about my students' views on the world as we work to achieve their learning goals, and I take joy in the opportunity to help others find their voice in any language.

I'm excited to speak with you and find out more about you and your educational goals! The more power and control you are given, the faster you will learn (and the more fun you will have doing it)! Hope to hear from you soon...

My masters degree is in TESOL. I have taught as part of a team of adult educators in community colleges, and as the head of a vocational program with online and in-person, group and individual classes. I love teaching because learning is a process, and I get to watch it happen right in front of me.

Very knowledgeable and patient.

Pepper is a great teacher! Her overall approach to teaching a student is holistic! Her methods of using podcasts to help with listening and writing sections for IELTS prep is a very unique, fun, and excellent way to assess your skills and how to improve them.
