Hello, my name is Zimkita. I am a native English speaker from Johannesburg, South Africa. I am TEFL certified and eager to embark on this English journey with you. I am a fashion designer, currently running my own start-up clothing line for women's wear. Besides fashion, I am an animal lover, a fitness enthusiast, and in my free time I enjoy volunteering and giving back to my community. I enjoy learning about the different cultures across the world through traveling experiences. I have traveled to Puerto Rico and Hawaii, and I lived in the United States for four years.
Me as a Teacher
I am certified with a 120 hour Teaching English as a Foreign Language Certificate (TEFL). I have experience as a professional Accounting and Business & Management tutor, but I have only taught English informally. I am eager to begin my professional English teaching journey with you.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are primarily conversational, focusing on pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. The topics I cover range from the life of the student, their city, work, school, friends, colors, shapes and sizes, numbers, feelings, days of the week, daily activities, food, transportation, news, traveling, sports, cultures, seasons and weather. All my classes are tailored to meet the student's individual goals. My aim is to make learning exciting, relaxing, and fun.
