Hi, I’m Ian Shepherd. I’m the founder of Right Start Newcomer Services. I started the business in January, 2021 to help newcomers across Canada learn English and get the information they need for success. We are located in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada.
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 learn English and get settled smoothly.
I can’t wait to meet you and help you get the right start in Canada!
