Hello, I am a first language English tutor and I have recently completed my PTLLS and CELTA qualifications. I am keen to use these to the benefit of others in the community. I have benefited greatly from the practical teaching and lesson planning experience gained on these courses and can offer a professional and enthusiastic approach to learning English.
I also have over 20 years of experience as a voluntary worker in Southern Africa, sharing in an education program designed to help people of all cultures and language groups improve the quality of their lives. My voluntary work has included public speaking and teaching as well as teaching on an individual basis.
Since coming to Leicestershire, England, I have assisted in teaching individuals from diverse backgrounds. I am patient, respectful and empathetic. I speak Afrikaans and at present I am studying French. Learning other languages has given me a greater insight into the challenges involved with language learning as well as a clearer understanding of the structure of my own language. I am therefore in a position to offer English lessons at reasonable rates.
