We are Wendy & Ian, the owners and Directors of the school. After completing our university studies we taught English in South Korea for two years. It was during our time in Korea that we realized how much we loved teaching and interacting with students of other cultures.

After returning home in 1997, we began planning ACCESS in 1998, opened the doors in 1999, and got married in 2000! It was a busy few years for us!

As a husband and wife team, we have realized our dream of working together, and doing something that we love. Travel & meeting new people have always been things that we've enjoyed doing, and at ACCESS we get to do both!

Our past teaching experiences helped us to develop top quality programs with a focus on speaking. We strongly believe that smaller is better. By being a small school and offering small classes, our students get the best quality experience. They get to know their teachers as well as the other students and staff. And, on top of it, we get to know our students too!

We routinely travel to other countries to promote ACCESS. During those visits, we learn about our students' cultures, which helps us better understand and deal with our students in Toronto. In addition to our love of travel, we also enjoy cooking, gardening, walking our dogs, and camping with our children.

We hope you will decide to join us at ACCESS. Our office door is always open. We hope to be able to welcome you in person soon!
