Susan Berry

Susan Berry holds a MA in TESOL and has worked in international multicultural education for over 25 years as an ESOL instructor, academic program manager, teacher educator, trainer of trainers and curriculum writer. She believes in the educational philosophy that puts “students in the spotlight” with objective-driven, interactive lessons that encourage them to learn just as much from each other as they do from other resources. She has experience working with the needs of the community and developing programs to fit those needs; most recently at Boston University with Chinese professors teaching STEM in English but also in South Korea, Brazil and Ecuador where she designed and implemented courses and then trained nonnative English speaking teachers and trainers on best practices in English Education Teacher Development.  Her personal strengths and characteristics include flexibility, an interest in cross cultural understanding and a desire to be a part of the solution. These experiences can be made even better if bicycles, sun and mangoes are around.
