Hi, my name is Teacher Thuba. I was born and raised in South Africa. I graduated with Bachelor's degree in Environmental Sciences and in addition, I did my postgraduate certificate in Education as well as TEFL certificate. I have worked in China as an English teacher, in South Africa as a subject teacher and I'm currently working as an English Language Arts teacher in Istanbul. I enjoy watching the latest movies, reading books, and listening to music during my free time.
Me as a Teacher
Growing up, I didn't have what others would consider an "amazing" teacher; therefore I decided that's who I want to be. A patient, caring, and kind teacher that is dedicated to teaching. It is important to me to get to know my students so that I can cater my lessons, or adjust my style to better suit the needs of my students.
I am empathic because I know what it takes for someone to learn something new, especially a new language. My classes focus more on conversational skills, mastering grammar, pronunciation, and enunciation.
My lessons & teaching style
I prefer to keep my lessons light and fun so that my students can be comfortable and productive. I let my students do more of the talking while I listen attentively and give feedback afterwards because my goal is to boost my students confidence, especially with the language that they want to learn.
