My name is Simi 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) as well as a 168-hour TEFL certificate, making me qualified to teach English as a foreign language. I have about 2 years' experience teaching English online to students from different parts of the world, so I'm aware of some of the major challenges students face when learning the English language. Most importantly, I understand that each student learns in their own way and at their own pace. Knowing this, I practice patience and 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. Also, I'm someone who gets along with people of different ages and I enjoy using role-playing, storytelling, laughter, TPR, pictures, realia, and other teaching methods to keep students engaged and motivated to continue learning. People who've had conversations with me often tell me that they feel like they are talking to a friend or someone they've known for a long time. With that in mind, I hope you'll select me as your preferred English tutor. I sure am looking forward to having you in my class soon.
