Sobre mí

Hello, my name is Sonja and I am originally from South Africa but I live in Portugal now. I speak fluent Portuguese. I specialize in helping you take your English skills to the next level with dynamic, personalised English coaching with proven results. I teach focused Business English classes based on student needs analysis to students working for multinationals in areas such as banking, supply chain management, the oil industry and IT.

I am a Certified IELTS exam Coach for IELTS Reading, Speaking, Listening + IELTS Writing coaching. I have 16 + years of formal ESL classroom experience and I have taught around 4000 online English Proficiency lessons to students from around the world over the past 2 years. I hold a 300 Hour TEFL Diploma and I am a native English speaker with slight, South African accent. I left my corporate job in investment banking to become a teacher and I am so glad I did. I find teaching to be a truly rewarding occupation and it really does not feel like a job to me at all.

Typical lessons have covered areas of Business English such as meeting agendas, how to deliver presentations effectively, correct vocabulary and terminology to use when describing charts and graphs, banking, business cycles, business email writing, making small talk, soft skills, customer service and problem solving, responding to serious customer service complaints, branding, competitive advantage, leading edge management and human resources etc.

I prepare many students for the IELTS exam. I love how teaching inspires one to keep learning and improve!
