Been teaching English as a Foreign Language since 2009 and still loving it!
My name is Bridgette, I am a native English speaker and I live in the beautiful surfers village of Jeffreys Bay in sunny South Africa.
Originally, I am from Cape Town – South Africa's 'Mother City' which is where my love for art and different cultures was solidly forged.
Since 2009 I have taught English to students as far afield as Iraq, Germany, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Kazikstan, Brazil, Equador, Zimbabwe, Jordon, Greece, France and Switzerland, taught at 2 different Language Schools in Jeffreys Bay, as well as keeping online contact with many of my students through the years to continue providing a conversational platform.
I absolutely love learning about different cultures and meeting interesting, new people.
With me as your tutor, your English will improve in leaps and bounds amidst loads of laughter, in a fun-filled environment – and did I mention that I enjoy teaching children too?
I find it incredibly rewarding to witness my students strive and improve their communicative skills, travel options and careers.
Our lessons will incorporate a discussion about previous assignments, addressing the issues that came up, reading, general conversation, improving your vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, fluency and confidence.
I will introduce a variety of reading materials, movies, documentaries, song lyrics, discussion topics, flash cards and other teaching media.
So, if you have a sense of humour (and want to learn to laugh in English) and are willing to put in the time and effort – I'm your English diva!
I look forward to meeting you during our first lesson and thank you so much for taking the time to watch my video and read my profile.
