Dr. Hilda Freimuth
Dr Hilda was born in Canada but was raised in Germany for the first eight years of her life. Her struggle to learn English upon her return to Canada drove her to enter the teaching profession later in life. Dr Hilda holds a BA in German, B.Ed, TESL Certificate, M.Ed., MA in TESOL, and a Ph.D. in Education (IELTS focus). She has taught English in Canada, Germany, and the UAE and has presented her research and work all around the world, including Dubai, Tokyo, Malta, and Amsterdam. Currently, Dr Hilda is a lecturer of Academic English at both UBC and KPU. Her mission in life is to help others to learn English and to promote worldwide primary education. To further this goal, every IELTS class run by her institute puts one child through primary school for a year in a developing country. A former IELTS examiner with a PhD in IELTS, Dr Hilda's course offers insights into the exam no other program does.
