Lorna Stuber


I am an ESL specialist who is passionate about language, literature, culture, and travel. My specializations are non-fiction, business communication, and writing by ESL and EFL professionals and students. As a certified Alberta K-12 teacher, I enjoy working with curriculum and with academic writing.

In the past 29 years I have worked extensively with people from a variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. I started my career by teaching adult ESL in Japan for 3 years and Calgary for 8 years. My teaching background also includes 16 years of instructional design (writing, designing, and editing online high school and professional development courses) and teaching online high school English Language Arts, Social Studies, and options.

I have edited a variety of texts over the years including high beginner to advanced ESL student personal, business, and academic writing.

In addition, I can help you with formatting e-books into EPUB and MOBI formats.
