Bretton Clark


My teaching practice and graduate work have always focused on learning by doing, and I use that approach to prepare and teach creative and dynamic EAP classes for Trent-ESL. That perspective also informs my work as Academic Liaison, because, if you’re a TIP student, then setting you up for success means: 1. providing you with a genuine experience of the challenges of being an international student in Canada, and 2. equipping you with the tools necessary to achieve your goals. Accordingly, I work to build bridges between Trent-ESL and the academic departments across campus in order to allow our students to cross the bridge with confidence.  Office CCH35
