Marjorie Friesen

About the Instructor: Marjorie Friesen

I am a native Canadian and fully-qualified professional business English coach with ten years’ experience teaching ESL and ELT (Enhanced Language Training) to international students and IEPs. I have taught courses to IEPs and international students at the University of Toronto and Sheridan College/Institute and other organizations.

In addition, I have two business degrees from Queen’s University and the Schulich School of Business (York University) and 15 years of business experience in several different business environments, including the former Ontario Hydro.

My business background has given me a strong understanding of Canadian workplace culture and an appreciation of the language and other issues IEPs encounter in the workplace.

I have worked with a number of IEP clients and their companies, including engineers and IT specialists. My clients have told me that their confidence and ability to write business documents and communicate with co-workers has increased significantly as a result.
