I am 54 year old qualified teacher, born in South Africa. Teaching is my passion. I also love to take long runs and hikes. My husband and I do not have children of our own. We are married for 12 years now. We live in George, a town situated in the Garden Route. We follow a healthy lifestyle and have a positive out look on life.
I have a HDE qualification, that is a 4 year diploma in teaching. I love teaching languages, especially to foreign tongue users. I taught English to Chinese, Xhosa, and Afrikaans students. Currently I am teaching 2 Turkish students to speak Afrikaans. I draw up my own lessons, focusing on communication. Afrikaans is a relative new language and is 1 of the 11 official languages in South Africa. I am excited to teach the whole world about my mother tongue.
I believe in step by step learning and teaching. My lesson starts with "Keywords" which will be used in the lesson. Then I recap the new vocabulary and start building sentences and questions. The student has ample time to practice reading and writing while working through the lesson. I do Revision after every 3 or 4 lessons done.

Today was my second lesson with Tanya and, like the first, it was absolutely excellent. Her lesson materials are the best and just the right length and difficulty. Love it and can't wait for my next lesson. I am learning a lot and having even more fun doing so. Thank you, Tanya.
