Hakkımda

Hi there. I live in sunny Cape Town, South Africa. I am married and have a 30 year old son. I am interested in assisting people to learn English. I have a gentle, nurturing method when teaching and have the patience required to teach English as a second language. I enjoy walking, arts and crafts and baking. We have two adorable pets, a dog called Ringo and a kitten called Nina. I have travelled extensively to many places and learnt so much about different cultures and people.

I have a TEFL qualification from Inlingua, Cape Town. For several years I taught at Inlingua, Cape Town. Inlingua is a leader in language training worldwide. Prior to that I worked in the administration department of a large, progressive and modern school. I have a degree in Social Sciences from the University of Cape Town, a diploma in Journalism and have passed several computer courses. I have a high degree of computer literacy. For over 10 years I have also assisted foreign speaking students by editing and proofreading their English theses.I now teach students privately online via Skype.

I use the communicative approach to teach English. The emphasis is on encouraging the student to talk as much as possible and to keep teacher talking time to a minimum. The structure of my lesson would be as follows: I would teach the student the target language, (for example the present tense), then I would give the students exercises in the target language, after that the student would be given the opportunity to practice the new target language as if in a normal setting. I use many exciting media and also like to use games and puzzles. I cover all four skills - Speaking, Reading, Writing and Listening. I can also assist you with your pronunciation and English for Special Purposes.
