Andrea Heald, M.Ed.
English Instructor. Vancouver, Canada.
Hello! My name is Andrea Heald. I am an English language instructor based in Vancouver, British Columbia. I hold a Master of Education degree from Simon Fraser University and am a certified CELPIP preparation instructor. I am TESOL certified and had the honour of receiving a Teaching Award of Excellence in 2017.
I began teaching English in 2014 after many years in the corporate sector and working as a stage manager and director in theatre. Both experiences have informed my teaching and I relish opportunities to teach English using effective techniques I have adapted and developed through my work.

She expertly filled the position of instructional specialist and has acted as a mentor and resource to both new and experienced teachers. Her unique combination of business experience, ESL expertise and theatre background…. make her an asset….”Janine
