About me - English

I believe learning another language, like English, can be fun and exciting. Learning to communicate with others is essential in our modern world, but it does not have to be daunting or scary. It might be easier to learn in a fun and casual environment.

I myself am bilingual and thus I know the trials that come with learning a new language. That means I also know how to overcome them and I want to share the good feeling that comes with learning a new language bit-by-bit with others.

I have experience in dealing with students from the ages of six all the way to eighteen. This means that I have experience in teaching students on both ends of the language-level spectrum.

My office is home-based and thus I have flexible working hours. I also have a steady and fast internet connection that has been proven to be quite reliable.

Qualifications & Experience

I have a TESL Certificate

I have two years tutoring experience in both English and Afrikaans.

These tutoring experiences ranges from teaching complete beginners to those who just want to focus on certain grammar areas. I can even offer assistance if all you want is to approve your conversational English.

I have tutored Early Childhood and young students as well as students in high school/secondary school.

I tutor biology as well, meaning I can give a hand in both cultural and scientific topics

Teaching Approach

My teaching approach is very orderly with the focus being on the student's requirements. I like to ensure my method is adaptable to the student's needs and level, after all each student is different and unique.

That said I enjoy keeping a fun and casual air so students to not feel put off. I know first-hand how intimidating learning a new language may seem and especially when that requires you to branch out and interact with new people.

There's been so many times that I've heard people dropping out of learning new things because they felt that starting or asking for help seemed terrifying. Some have dropped out because they feel like too much pressure has been put on them. That is what I want to avoid by offering a more casual teaching environment. Learning a whole new language is amazing and opens so many doors- everyone should be able to experience that.
