Hi, I’m Ian Shepherd. I’m the founder of Right Start Newcomer Services. I started this business to help newcomers across Canada learn English and get the information they need for success. We are located in Kjipuktuk, Mi’kma’ki (Halifax, Nova Scotia).
I have been an English instructor, curriculum developer, teacher trainer, and orientation coordinator in the Canadian settlement sector for over 10 years. During my career, I have helped thousands of newcomers improve their English and get settled.
I can’t wait to meet you and help you get the Right Start in Canada!
