I am a South African and a native English speaker with over 5 years experience as a private tutor. Furthermore, I teach Psychology, Criminology and Sociology lessons. I also teach IsiZulu and help with homework. I have a cum-laude degree in Psychology and a BSc Honors in Psychology. I have experience with qualitative research. Currently doing a Masters by Dissertation: Psychology. I also specialize in data entry work, proofreading and editing.
I believe in not limiting yourself to one thing. There are countless opportunities at your disposal.
Me as a Teacher
I believe that everyone has different points of struggles and as a teacher I take that into consideration. Therefore, I always look for different ways to approach each students difficulties by customizing lessons to their needs. As a Psychology graduate I understand the power of conversations so you can expect lessons planned around talking about your desired goals and outcomes. I always seek to find ways to help students achieve their personal or academic goals. But I also make it a point to ask for students' idea's of what they want to learn.
My lessons & teaching style
Students should expect lessons that are customized to their individual interests and goals. My teaching approach follows a conversational style driven by the students interests, goals, and anything comfortable or appropriate to teach. I use TPR (Total Physical Response) as a teaching method aimed at helping students understand spoken words by linking it with physical movement. Students may request particular topics to form the basis of lessons.

The lesson was great! Although the topic for today was pretty general, it turned out to be fascinating. We spoke about individuals, families, and work most of the time. When it comes to expressing ideas or opinions about something, there are no right or wrong answers. As usual, I enjoyed having a conversation with Tiny 😃

We had an interesting conversation about friendship. It was really an enjoyable lesson because I could relate to this topic and I was telling stories before answering the questions. As we discussed this topic further, I was able to express myself and expand my vocabulary. It is preferable to learn a new word every day by applying it, which means putting it into practice rather than memorizing it. As always, Tiny never disappoints me. In every lesson, I feel that I have overcome my fear of talking with people. I don't think I can truly put into words how I feel right now. Thank you, Tiny, and see you soon! :)

Tiny brought up another interesting topic about immigration, and I'm really surprised and thrilled to discuss this because I had a conversation with my family members about it a few days ago. This time, I was sharing and giving my opinions about it, and so far there has been no objection from Tiny. I guess I did pretty well throughout the session. Even though Tiny looked a bit restless, she still continued with the session. As always, she's still cheerful, and I really admire her efforts. I also understand that she doesn't want to disappoint her students. Anyway, I really enjoyed our usual conversation. See you soon, Tiny! :)
