A storyteller from my first job to my last.
Here is a brief tour of what I’ve done:
USA: Varied Stories
In the USA, I have created . . .
- educational stories when I created an education department for a cultural museum in Philadelphia.
- proposals to receive funds for humanities programming for the Delaware Humanities Forum.
- fundraising stories to raise money for the American Lung Association.
- stories about books when I was marketing and sales director of several major US academic publishing houses (12 years’ experience).
Singapore: English as a Second Language (ESL) Stories
When I moved to Singapore, I began teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). I received CELTA and TESOL accreditation, and for 12 years, immersed myself in this area. I soon branched out from teaching young adults at private schools into university teaching and executive coaching.
I also wrote a series of 3 books (Reading for Success), and wrote several English curricula for Singapore organisations. I have worked with students from all parts of Asia, Europe and Latin America.
I have worked with the following organisations and individuals:
- Senior Singapore government officials
- Earth Observatory of Singapore (of Nanyang Technological University)
- AXA Financial
- Johnson & Johnson
- Maris Navigation
- Cambridge English Academy
- Housing Development Board
- Channel IT21
