Hello! My name is Moira, and I am a native English speaker, who has a passion for teaching the English language. I enjoy traveling and meeting new people from around the world. I love learning about different cultures, and traditions, and how we are all so different, and yet the same! I enjoy teaching English to speakers of other languages, and I love seeing my students gain confidence as their language skills improve! I am patient and supportive and prepare my lessons to help my students improve their communication skills in a fun and easy way.
I know the trials and tribulations of learning a new language as I am learning to speak Spanish, so I understand the difficulties that a new student goes through! Practice and preparation always are rewarded, and I can help you with a learning plan to achieve your goals. I enjoy teaching online as it gives me the opportunity to meet and talk to people from all over the world.
Why not sign up for a trial lesson and we can talk about your aims and goals and how we can work together to achieve them.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Linguistics and Communication from the University of South Africa and I completed my TESOL certificate in 2012. I enjoy teaching Business English to people who need to communicate in English for business purposes and I have also taught English as a second language to speakers of all levels and ages. I can help students with their grammar, pronunciation, and fluency and help them to achieve their language goals. I have worked in the education sector for many years and have vast experience in communicating at all levels in English, both in the written and spoken form.
I use the Communicative Approach to language teaching where the goal of the teacher to encourage students to use language effectively and appropriately in a social context. My lessons are designed around the aims and goals of the student and the emphasis is on communicative competence. My lessons are well-prepared, fun and enjoyable, and are designed to get the student talking as much as possible. Do you need to speak English at work? Are you travelling to an English-speaking country and would like to talk to the locals? Do you need to improve your pronunciation? Whatever your goals, I will personalize the lessons for you and make them enjoyable so that you can reach your language goals.
