Hello, my name is Luvuyo from South Africa. I love English and linguistics as a whole and absolute Harry Potter fan. My favorite author is Chinua Achebe, and my all-time favorite book is Half of a yellow sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I'm pursuing a law degree, specifically family law.
Me as a Teacher
I believe that learning should be fun and positive and I strive to ensure the learning environment is healthy and supportive. I'm patient and supportive as I understand how hard it is to learn a foreign language. I'm also bubbly, colorful, and flexible in the classroom setting.
My lessons & teaching style
I will make use of flashcards, presentation slides, quizzes, and possibly homework assignments. I center my lesson plans around memory retention and understanding so teaching methods such as flashcards and tests are important for me. My teaching style is more focused on conversation practice, sentence structure, and grammar understanding.
