I am a university student in the faculty of Health Sciences. I speak 7 of the soon to be 12 official South African languages including IsiZulu, South African Sign Language and Xhosa. I have plenty of experience in online tutoring and also working with the youth. I teach English, IsiZulu and South African Sign Language.
Me as a Teacher
I am very approachable, attentive and passionate about teaching. I ensure that my learners have all the support, resources and motivation they need to succeed.
My lessons & teaching style
I believe that one of the most efficient ways to learn a language is through practice. I will therefore ensure that I provide learners with sufficient time to practice their skills. Another firm belief of mine is that the lesson should be conversational and enjoyable. I am also cognizant of the fact that some learners are visual learners and others are auditory, so I will use the necessary resources to complement their learning style.
I use many resources to aid my teaching including videos, games and other resources.

Umfundisi Samkeliso will make sure that you are learning and that you understand what you are learning. If you have any questions, he will not hesitate to explain to you while also encouraging you to arrive at the answer on your own. I feel a lot more confident about my knowledge of the language. Ngiyabonga kakhulu.
