Option 1 (Beginners) – EAST VANCOUVER

For complete beginners to English, Pear Tree Education is offering ESL summer camps. These are for children aged 5-14 yrs and take place at our East Vancouver location.

Pear Tree makes learning English easier by teaching the language within one of our theme-based courses. All of our courses will enhance your child’s understanding of what they are learning at school, while at the same time focusing on learning English. All of our teachers for these courses are fully-qualified school teachers who know how to teach our Pear Tree courses at an appropriate ESL language level.

Classes are organised based on age groups.

As our ESL camps run alongside our regular summer camps in East Vancouver, your child will have many opportunities to interact with Canadian students.

USA

Our U.S. and U.K. summer schools are for older children, generally aged 12+. These are residential summer schools in which students stay in university, hostel or family homestay accommodation.

Our summer schools are different from our summer camps:

  • Pear Tree’s summer camps are educational courses designed for native English speakers, with international students participating to experience Canadian education with Canadian students. There are no ESL classes at our summer camps, as younger students are able to learn English in an immersive learning environment.
  • ESL summer schools are for older students who benefit more from formal ESL classes (i.e. grammar, vocabulary). Also, our ESL summer schools have a strong cultural experience aspects. Most days, students will visit cultural and tourist attractions by bus or by train depending on the summer school location. ESL summer schools include residential accommodation, food, 24/7 supervision, activities, airport transfers, and excursions. As a result, they are more expensive options.

OUR DIRECTORS

Pear Tree’s two directors, Paul Romani and Alexis Birner, have tremendous experience and success in ESL summer camp, ESL, and education.

PAUL ROMANI (M.Ed) – MANAGING DIRECTOR

Paul achieved tremendous success as a computer engineer – winning high praise and accolades from PC Magazine on multiple occasions – before switching his focus to education in 2001.

Since then, he has worked in a wide variety of educational institutions and with a wide range of students from elementary to seniors. His teaching career included stints in Spain, the United Kingdom, and Germany before returning to Canada and joining the staff at Vancouver Career College in 2007. He has extensive experience teaching ESL, career and vocational training, and educational management, most notably at the ISIS Royal Holloway where he directed six UK summer residential language schools with a staff of 70+ and upwards of 1000 students.

In 2010, he founded Pear Tree, Vancouver’s only educational institute focusing on principles of Education 3.0: a balanced mix of academic, socio-emotional, and physical skills, integrated subjects, collaboration, creativity, seamless integration of modern technology, hands-on and student-centred learning, and real-world application of academic skills. They launched Pear Tree Elementary – a K-7 full-day school – in September 2016.

ALEXIS BIRNER (M.Ed) – ACADEMIC DIRECTOR

Alexis has been working as an elementary school teacher in British Columbia for nearly ten years, with experience in both public and private schools from kindergarten to grade 7. In addition to her teaching background, she has also assisted on a wide variety of learning resources and enrichment, including the planning and execution of outdoor education trips, launching a one-to-one iPad program, and incorporating digital portfolio and assessment methods into daily teaching practice.

With an M.Ed in language and literacy, Alexis is able to engage her students in inventive and leading-edge activities. A devoted elementary educator, she is a frequent and published researcher in the field of critical literacy theory, and a strong advocate for using modern educational methods and philosophies in the classroom.

Alexis brings her exceptional credentials and expertise to our Primary program as the classroom teacher for grades 2-4, and her leadership abilities as the school principal and manager for Pear Tree’s three summer camp locations. In her free time, she enjoys cooking and exploring the fitness and physical activity options in the city, two passions that she shares with her students whenever possible.

OUR TOP PRIORITY

At all times Pear Tree Education places the welfare and safety of its students ahead of all other priorities.  Pear Tree’s directors have used all of their experience as Summer Camp and Summer School managers and teachers to handpick the best ESL summer camps for SummerESL.com – ones that never make any compromises to student safety.
