Hello😃 My name is Therusha 👧 and I live in Durban, South Africa 🇿🇦 Its nice to meet you!
I am a fluent native speaker with a South African accent, so it will be easy for you to understand me 👂 I have a Bachelor’s Degree with a Cum Laude pass in Finance and I'm a qualified Financial Accountant 📚 I´m passionate about adventure, learning about new cultures and trying new things🏊♀️ I greatly enjoy the outdoors, reading and doing crosswords. I would love to share my experiences with you and hear all about your interests too!
Me as a Teacher
I am a positive person who has an enthusiastic outlook on life. I am also very open minded to new ideas and I always encourage my students to try and use the English language as much as possible . As a teacher I am very calm and patient, I am jovial by nature, a patient listener, and a compassionate teacher. During our lessons, I would encourage you to speak 🗣️ more about diverse topics of your interest.
My lessons are always lively, filled with enjoyable activities and most importantly my lessons are beneficial to my students. I aim to make our lessons fun and interactive and I encourage you to make mistakes since mistakes are the stepping stones to learning 😊
My lessons & teaching style
My teaching style is very relaxed and patient, I prefer keeping my lessons light and fun, whilst achieving my students language goals. I enjoy doing quizzes and articles with my students. I will constantly try and test your knowledge on basic or intermediate grammar and pronunciation.
I adapt my teaching style in order to cater for my student and make the lesson as interesting as possible. I also prefer using the TPR method of teaching in order to get my message across to my student.
My lessons will be centered around my students ability to understand the English command 😃
