My name is Awethu, also known as Hope. I am a native English speaker from South Africa. I am passionate about both learning and teaching. Language is pivitol in the art of communication, that's why I invest in teaching languages. I am currently working towards obtaining my Masters degree in Theology & Psychology.
For the past 5 years I have been developing future leaders with the skills necessary to make this world a better place. I participate in several community development programs in South Africa; from charity work to cleaning our cities, as well as offering First Aid training. I am a Cadet Officer and leader under the Order St John Brigade, an international healthcare and welfare NPO.
I am a TEFL certified teacher. I have spoken English since I was a child. I am experienced in teaching English informally in townships where students struggle with learning in English, and 3 years experience of teaching English as a foreign language online.
I have always done exceptionally well in English at school, as a result I joined the Debating and Writing Society. I have debated in the World Schools Debating Style from 2014 to 2017. Having become the best speaker at many competitions, I then went on to do an Adjudication course, qualifying me as an English Debating adjudicator.
As a theologian by profession, I also teach biblical studies in English at conferences and workshops.
I approach and teach English as a language art; an art of communication. Using creative techniques, I am able to assist students remember grammar rules with ease. I focus on helping intermediate English speakers advance to a level of fluency. I pay close attention to accent, vocabulary and word pronunciation. I structure my classes in such a way that they are informative yet give the student sufficient time to apply what is learnt through practical class exercises. 50% of my lessons are conversational, 25% is reading and 25% writing. This variety ensures holistic English learning and promotes accuracy.

It's glad that I can have my classes with Awethu, she is such a good teacher and listener. There are lots of interesting topics during the classes, and the interactions are very engaging. Also, she will wait for me to finish my sentences and never interrupt me, which helps me to build my confidence when speaking English. It's great.
