Hello my name is Simphiwe from South Africa. I am qualified as a TEFL teacher and a social worker.
I have tutoring experience and I also worked as a school social worker where I would also help children in understanding and learning English in a learning style that they prefer.
I have a huge passion for helping people achieve their goals. I love reading and learning about new cultures too.
Me as a Teacher
As a teacher I try my absolute best to make you feel comfortable because this is when you will learn English best. I will always make sure the lessons are based around topics you are interested in. I am a teacher who works hard to make sure you achieve your goals. I am friendly and easy to talk to which makes lessons that much more easier and more enjoyable
My lessons & teaching style
I have two years tutoring experience and under a year in the role of school social worker. I am TEFL qualified which allows me to teach English. I prefer to teach English in a more interactive way seeing as it is a language. I believe that teaching all the grammar rules and vocabulary is important but what’s important is how one applies it in conversation.
