I am a friendly, loving and enthusiastic foundation phase teacher, qualified to teach learners age 5 to 10, but have also had older learners in my English classes. I believe that we all grasp new concepts easier through a more practical approach, therefor I take great pride in the resources I use for each lesson, as well as the physical activities and games used for a fun, but educational, learning atmosphere.
I am a qualified B.Ed Foundation Phase teacher with 5 years experience. I started working for the South African Education department in 2015 and have since taught grades 1 and 2 English classes. In 2019 I moved to Angola where I started an English class teaching Portuguese learners the basic English language.
My rates apply to all level of students.
AMY SPIES VAN DER MERWE
In perusing my passion for developing young minds and creating a better future for generations to come, I completed my B. ed foundation phase degree at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. I started teaching in 2015 and have since gathered five years’ experience in grades 1 and 2. After a few years of teaching, I embarked on a new journey that lead me to a more corporate environment. I joined the AFS group in mid-2018 who offered me an opportunity as an export controller, I have since then taken on a managerial role. This was very challenging at first, but with hard work, perseverance and excellent mentors, I soon developed a love and understanding for the trade. During this time I worked from Angola where I also started an English class where I taught the basic English language to Portuguese speaking learners as well as preparing a local teacher to take over the class once I move back to South Africa in 2020. I am currently assisting and mentoring the class online.
My strong points include diligence, creativity, patience and professionalism. My teaching experience also taught me how to work effectively under an immense amount of pressure, an attribute that I will be able to utilize in any challenging situation.
