Hello and bonjour!
My name is Dani and I am a teacher from Vancouver, British Columbia. I am now living in Montreal, Quebec (a French speaking province). Just before moving here permanently, I spent seven months in Rankin Inlet, Nunavut, which is right below the Arctic Circle. Sometimes, polar bears roamed on the edge of town!
Before deciding to pursue my university degrees, I studied to become a professional make-up artist. However, I realized that my true calling was in education. Though I specialized in primary education, I have taught students of all ages, and I especially enjoy teaching adults!
While I was in university, I was fortunate enough to have some of my work published in a magazine and in academic handbooks. Currently, I am the content editor for a non-profit organization called End Poverty Now. Feel free to check out my proofreading services on my lessons list!
Some of my interests include painting, cooking, hiking, creative writing, LEARNING, creating educational content, making people think deeply, laughing, blues music, and getting to know YOU! ;)
Credentials and Qualifications:
- Bachelor of Arts in English Literature
- Bachelor of Education
- Read about my teaching philosophy on my teaching blog!
It's all about you! Feel free to browse through the lessons that I prepared already. I am open to ideas for new lessons if you don't see anything you like!
Apart from being flexible and patient, I also believe that laughter is important because it builds a warm teacher-student relationship. ;)
Do you want a professional, fun and easy-going tutor? Then contact me. I can't wait to meet you!

***nyliangDani spent lots of hours teaching me how to improve my cover letter and resume. It was not just about "English" writing, but also about how to remove redundant sentences and more fundamentally, how to structure an article. I learned a lot during the process.What do YOU Want to Learn? 50 2,700Jun 6, 2018

***miすごい楽しかったです。そして言い方が不自然なところを教えてくれますが、それがサラリとしていて感じよく大変ためになります。Let's Talk! Coffee Date With Dani L. 25 1,400May 31, 2018
***dy.LThe news video this time is very interesting. Although I can catch what happened easily, it is hard for me to describe it fluently. Dani taught me a lot in building natural sentences and the follow-up is very useful as well. I will keep taking this class.CNN / BBC News - Let's Get Opinionated 25 1,400May 29, 2018
