Hello there! As your tutor, you will find that my style is one of support and guidance, with lavish amounts of patience. My key objective is to help you to master the maze of the English language, so

Methodology

In our first lesson, we'll talk about what you want to achieve, and find a starting point for you according to your skill levels. Then, depending on your requirements as a student, my lessons are usually made up of four sections: formal training, free conversation, reading and essay writing. Each lesson can be made up of (usually) two of these components, according to your goals.

Experience

I have plenty of experience in online teaching, and really enjoy seeing my students going from strength-to-strength. I was born and raised in South Africa which was a British colony for centuries and where English is the national language, I have no accent (i.e. a neutral accent).

M Y P R O F I L E In my working career spanning the last 40+ years I have earned a wide and comprehensive range of experiences and knowledge, which I look forward to bringing to the “classroom” as an ESL teacher to your students. The learners I coached when working with Native Camp (online ESL teaching) were highly responsive to the approach taken with ESL learning and we developed a solid communication from the start. I look forward to working with your learners and your materials to continue this positive trend in education.

When I think back on the archaic education methods used when I was at school, I shudder. There were so many students who never came close to realizing their full potential – and I’m really grateful that today’s learners can only go from strength to strength. I am proud to be a part of this revolution and evolution.
Looking forward to moving into the future with you.

Mark is a great teacher, he’s helping me with the whole set of English learning skills. We practice writing, reading and speaking skills every lesson. I feel very confident and for the first time, I can see my progress on learning English. Furthermore, Mark is very patient and also a friendly person, our lessons are so fun. I recommend him.
