I am teacher from South Africa, who is passionate about teaching, writing, technology, travelling and learning. I have a degree in English literature, a Diploma in Media Studies and a TEFL teaching certificate.
Through proper lesson planning, formal exercises, and language games, I create classes that are highly interactive, innovative and engaging. I am a compassionate teacher who remains sensitive to the multicultural needs of my students, ensuring to provide positive reinforcement, encouragement, and effective listening for continuous focus and motivation.
My experience includes teaching students from various backgrounds and levels: pronunciation practice, vocabulary, grammatical structures, and idiomatic language, in both one-on-one and group classes. I enjoy teaching online because technology can transform the learning process by connecting, improving and personalizing classes, making sure to meet your specific language needs and goals.
I believe everyone has the potential to learn and as your teacher, I will guide and support you step-by-step to gradually build your confidence and watch you grow. My goal is to equip you with the necessary tools to empower your communication skills and to help you discover as much as possible on your own!
