Greg Skrypiczajko

A.K.A. Skryp

Greg earned a B.Ed. in Teaching English as a Second Language and a M.Sc. in Psycholinguistics and the bilingual mental lexicon. Over the past 25 years, Greg has worked with several universities and colleges, including University of Alberta's Faculty of Extension, Concordia University of Edmonton, Norquest College, Edmonton Mennonite Centre for Newcomers, and Yellowhead Tribal College. He has also taught English language courses and researched with cognitive science, linguistics, and psycholinguistics groups at Korea University and Seoul National University. Greg has also taught elementary school teachers at Seoul National University of Education. With many brilliant colleagues, Greg has co-published many scientific papers on bilingual processing and other topics in language acquisition and psycholinguistics.

Greg founded Canadian English Language Services in 1995 and incorporated it in 2017. It is needless to say that Greg wears many hats. In addition to working as a teacher and editor for other organizations, Greg has offered top-notch English language services to newcomers as well as native speakers with editing needs.

More than anything, Greg loves playing with his son. Camping in the summer and skiing in the winter are the two activities which bring the family togther for adventure, but reading, sports of all sorts, and Lego fill in all the fun time in-between.
