Our Online Teachers

We are pleased to introduce a few of the teachers who will be delivering our Oxford International online classes. This is just a selection but we can guarantee that all of the teachers working on these programmes are fully qualified and have great experience. All of the teachers normally work in the Oxford International schools in UK, Canada and USA.

Teacher Profile

Anna - TESL, B.A Sociology

After graduating from the University of Ottawa, with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology, I began teaching English as a Second Language. My career began in The Czech Republic, followed by Taiwan, Japan, Australia, and of course, here in Canada. With over 15 years of international experience, I can happily say that I love my job. It’s rare to have a career that allows one to work and travel, or have the world come to you, like here in multicultural Toronto. At Oxford International Toronto, I have taught a variety of levels, and successfully prepared many students for academic tests including, IELTS, Cambridge, TOEFL and TOEIC.
