Lina is a recent MA graduate in Language and Literacies Education at OISE. Prior to joining GCAC, she oversaw a writing and tutoring centre at a private university college. With a research focus on promoting the writing skills of post-secondary language learners, Lina has enjoyed teaching courses for non-native speakers at U of T including “Academic Writing 1: Focus on Essentials,” “Academic Writing 2: Focus on Grammar” and “Academic Conversations Skills.” Helping students to become more confident and proficient communicators is a gratifying part of Lina’s work at GCAC. She looks forward to meeting students in her classes, knowing that she will also learn from their various backgrounds, disciplines, and perspectives.
