我從2007前開始在台北教書,在伊利諾州的芝加哥出生,在密西根州的安娜堡長大。高中畢業後,我在聖路易斯的華盛頓大學念中國語文學及政治科學,之後到台灣繼續中文語言學習,同時愛上了這個美麗的島嶼。來台灣這段時間,我在台灣大學完成了我的碩士學位,並享受這邊多樣的休閒運動及社交生活。

I have been teaching in Taipei since 2007. I was born in Chicago, Illinois and raised in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After graduating from high school I went to Washington University in St. Louis where I studied Chinese language and political science. After college I traveled to Taiwan to continue my language studies and fell in love with the island. I have since completed a master’s degree from National Taiwan University and enjoy participating in a wide variety of athletic and social activities.

各位家長同學幸會。我是來自加拿大卡爾加里的Ian。自維多利亞大學音學系畢業之後,2017年搬到台北在師範大學進修。透過自己的語言學習,所以對應用語言學及教育學的興趣愈加濃厚,決定在台灣定居並從事英文教育的工作。我的目標是幫助同學們使用更有效的學習方法,進而養成學生自學能力,並培養畢業後美好前途的實力。課堂上見!

This is Ian from Calgary, Canada. After graduating from the University of Victoria with a degree in Trumpet Performance, I moved to Taipei in 2017 to pursue further education at the National Taiwan Normal University. Having developed a passion for applied linguistics and pedagogy through my own language studies, I decided to set up residence in Taiwan and pursue a career in language education. I hope to help students develop into independent learners by sharing effective study methods which will set them up for success beyond graduation. See you in class!
