s4BggSu+TXO2PnTFjbsiEQ_thumb_177cEla has over seven years of teaching experience with a special focus on newcomers to Canada and young adults who are interested in studying in college or university.

She has a BA in English Literature and Philosophy from University of Toronto, where she also received her TESOL qualification.

Her passion for English has encouraged her to teach students of various levels from beginner to proficient as well as test preparation courses, mainly IELTS and TOEFL.

Ela loves seeing her students gain confidence in their language skills and considers it a success when they are able to take what they’ve learned in class into the real world and use it without second-guessing themselves. Knowing four languages herself, she understands firsthand what it means to speak and think in a different perspective.

The next natural step for Ela’s career was being a part of Vertices. She feels grateful to have met three wonderful, multifaceted coworkers who went on to become the closest friends and finally partners!

Through Vertices, Ela is excited to meet and help students of all levels and needs learn English using various tips and techniques so that they can, ultimately, become autonomous learners!
