TESOL certfied tutor with face-to-face and online experience!
italki teacher since Jun 8, 2022
I am a young woman who's always been passionate about people, community work and languages. I have a wide range of hobbies, an outgoing personality and a zeal for life that keeps me going each day. I love dogs, music, cooking and everything else in between. Community and outreach work has made me patient, understanding and able to adapt to different people from all walks of life. I am fluent in English, Afrikaans and isiXhosa.
Me as a Teacher
I am a kind, patient and friendly teacher. I do not only focus on the 'teacher-student' relationship, but I try to understand my students on a personal level and this has yielded good results. I hold a TESOL certificate and a TEFL classroom course certificate. I have 2 years of face to face tutoring experience in English, Afrikaans and Biology. Last year I started teaching online too.
My lessons & teaching style
My classroom is very student-orientated because I allow the student to have a say in how they would like things to run. I have found that this makes them comfortable and also gives me an overview of what they expect from me as a teacher.
