italki teacher since Nov 24, 2021
Hello, my name is Wendy and I am a newly certified Level 5 TEFL teacher from sunny South Africa. I am a friendly, creative person that loves spending time outdoors and being surrounded by nature and am very fortunate to live in a country that has desert, forest, mountain, ocean, and savannah landscapes all on my doorstep. Cooking is like therapy to me and I enjoy being creative with flavors. Some of my interests are making jewelry, painting, music, trail walking, and design.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher, my core focus is on my student's needs and expectations. We will practice English through relaxed conversations that are centered around interesting topics. I am patient and believe that with joint effort and mutual respect, progress is an achievable goal and I would love to be part of your English learning journey.
My lessons & teaching style
I am a calm, centered teacher who prefers a relaxed classroom environment so that the student gets full benefit from the lesson. I will encourage conversation from my students as this skill will give them the confidence to practice the language outside of the classroom and improve fluency. I use the TPR method and am very expressive with gestures in my lessons.
