Hello, I'm a native English speaker from South Africa, and I've been teaching English online since 2012. I can help you with grammar, vocabulary, and exam preparation. I also enjoy having casual conversations and asking questions. I'm a curious person, so I'm happy to talk about almost any topic. Growing up in South Africa, where there are 11 official languages, has given me experience with different cultures and languages. In my free time, I like hiking, cycling, gardening, doing yoga, surfing, and reading. Let's have a chat and explore new topics together! 😊

I took a lot of lessons (more than 100) and I had many teachers (more than 15) and I can tell that Jessie is one of my favorite teachers. Why? Because she is very attentive, she always gives me the floor when I want to speak. She speaks but not too much (some teachers are too talkative!)And what I prefer she asks me a lot of questions. We had many discussions about different topics (travelling, dating on line, tourism, South Africa…) and it was always interesting. Thank you SUPER Jessie.
