Experienced and TESOL certified English teacher with a Bachelor's degree in English Literature offering language lessons.

Methodology

I take a student-centered approach to teaching as I believe in having my students as involved as possible. I encourage my students to identify their own goals and help them work towards them. I have experience with teaching students of all ages and levels of proficiency (including native speakers). I have access to a vast collection of resources and learning tools which I can provide my students with.

Experience

I have a Bachelor's degree in English literature and Psychology from the UCT (SA's top University) and a Honours degree from UNISA. I am TESOL certified and have taught English in Thailand, both at a language school and a government high school. I have also been a tutor for over 3 years, teaching English and Afrikaans to students of all ages (including adults and university students), and have recently (since July 2019) been teaching online as well.
