Andrea Heald – Vancouver, BC

Andrea Heald-Miller, M.Ed.

English Instructor. Vancouver, Canada.

I began teaching and coaching English because it is my calling! I dove-in to teaching in 2014 after many happy years in the corporate sector and working as a stage manager and director in theatre. Both experiences have informed my teaching style and has lead to producing excellent results in my students’ abilities to use their English skills confidently in their professional and personal lives.

I am based in Vancouver, Canada. I hold a Master of Education degree from Simon Fraser University and am a certified CELPIP and IELTS preparation instructor. I am TESOL certified and had the honour of receiving a Teaching Award of Excellence in 2017.


“Thank you so much, Andrea, I mean it. If it was not for your help, I would be unable to do it on my own….you are already a part of our history in Canada.”

“I learned speaking and writing from Andrea…she recommended recording my voice and listening to these recordings by myself….her lesson was very helpful, and I could get … confidence for the test.”

“Andrea helped me achieve my CELPIP score…I am very happy with the class and the strategies.”

“It is rare to come across the exceptional passion and motivation for education that is consistently displayed by Andrea. I have had the pleasure of working with her for 6 years and have seen her growth skyrocket from a beginner to motivator, Instructional Specialist, Teacher of Excellence award winner, and finally masters educated leader. 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….”


“Last Saturday I took another CELPIP test and…I get the result that I want (score 7 in speaking).

Your advice during the classes helped me a lot 🙂

Thanks for your support.”
