Andrea Heald – Vancouver, BC

Andrea Heald-Miller, M.Ed.

English Instructor. Vancouver, Canada.

Andrea is an award winning English language instructor based in Vancouver, British Columbia and is the owner of The Joy of English. She holds a Master of Education degree from Simon Fraser University and is TESOL certified as well as certified in CELPIP and IELTS preparation.

“I began teaching English because it is my calling! I love language and the subtleties of how humans communicate in the different situations we find ourselves in. I coach individuals who wish to use English as a tool for better communication in addition to creating an expanded awareness of how listening, body language, and voice add to one’s power as an effective communicator.

I dove-into teaching in 2014 after many happy years in the corporate sector and creating theatre as a stage manager and director. Both experiences have informed my teaching style and has lead to helping many individuals use their English skills confidently in their professional and personal lives.”
