italki teacher since Nov 17, 2021
I am a 28 year old English tutor from Johannesburg, South Africa (born and raised). I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychlogy and Communications, and an Honours degree in Communication Sciences. I currently work as an online English instructor, and i have prior online teaching experience. During my undergrad studies, i took English studies courses for two years and excelled in my modules.
I am a kind, fun, charismatic and optimistic person, and i have a passion for working with people. My hobbies include reading, swimming, and sight seeing. In my spare time, i do community work, and i get involved with various outreach programmes in and around my community.
Me as a Teacher
My core academic discipline is Communication Sciences, which has instilled in me the skills set required when working with people. As an English tutor, this enables me to understand that the individual needs of each student are unique and should be treated as such.
I have experience teaching online and i am currently working as an online English instructor. This experience has strengthened my interpersonal and communication skills, which then helps me to perform adequately as a teacher.
I listen attentively and pay attention to my students. This is important as it gives me an indication of which area of needs of the student i have to concentrate on, to help them achieve their goals.
