My name is Karen, I live in South Africa. I love to bake, and every birthday my children and some other family members have, I make them an elaborate cake and cupcakes to celebrate the occasion. Everyone looks forward to this, and ideas and themes are chosen long before the birthdays already. Making people happy, makes me happy! I am an empathetic, passionate person, who loves to share information and knowledge. I can connect with people on their level, and in doing so share memorable information and moments, that will be retained.
Me as a Teacher
I believe that you cannot learn if you are bored. Keeping energy up, and keeping the student involved is key. I will take the journey with the student, and be there every step of the way.
My qualifications are as follows : I hold a TEFL and TEFL practical certificates. Teaching is really a passionate experience.
My lessons & teaching style
My lessons are interactive, and involve praise for achievements. Questions are asked to provoke thinking, reasoning and appropriate responses from students. The first lesson will be used to accurately determine the student's ability and proficiency. From there a tailor made teaching plan and program will be set up.
If you are not present for the first 15 minutes of the lesson the lesson will be confirmed as complete, and payment for the lesson is due. If you won't be able to make it for a lesson, it is your responsibility to contact me for alternative arrangements.
