My name is Simthembile 'Simmy' Ziqu and I'm from the beautiful and diverse rainbow nation of South Africa. I'm a native English speaker who holds a bachelor's degree in Health Sciences (Biokinetics) from the University of the Witwatersrand as well as a 168-hour TEFL certificate via The TEFL Academy. I have tutoring and online ESL teaching experience, so I know for a fact that each student learns in their own way and at own pace. Knowing this, I always strive to provide an environment where each student can have the opportunity to experience success and progress as they further develop their English language skills. To achieve this, I always try to engage them in conversations that are fun and interesting as it is my goal to help encourage students to look beyond the classroom and view the world around them as a place of learning and discovery. In short, if you're looking for someone who’s friendly; can quickly build rapport; is good at keeping students engaged using TPR, pictures, realia and various teaching methods and more importantly, is a patient, active listener, then do select me as your preferred English tutor.
