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.

I love my job! Just two weeks after I began teaching in 2009, I realised that I had a talent. Therefore, teaching has always been easy for me and I feel very confident. Many long-term students have become my friends. I have several unique selling points that are important when future students are searching for their teacher. Slowly, step by step, I too learnt elementary grammar together with my students and, since then, I can competently explain it. I enjoy grammar whereas the majority of native speakers cannot explain grammar at all, because they do not know it themselves. They learnt English as children and were never taught the rules of grammar at school. Furthermore, I have a nice British accent. In fact, my accent quickly improved when I first lived overseas 17 years ago. I began to deliberately speak clearly, carefully pronouncing every word, so that people could understand me more easily. This quickly became my normal speech. Furthermore, now I can speak conversational Russian. Finally, I am a patient person. Some children are much happier showing me their toys, in comparison to reading from a book or learning an English story for school. However, this is very normal. I allow the children to release their excitement as they show me such toys and pets, or tell me about their weekend, before guiding them back to the tasks required in our lesson. In fact, many of the intelligent children do not even need my help to do their school homework. They are clever enough to do it themselves, answering the questions often quicker than I can. However, they enjoy the company and moral support of studying with me, providing them with motivation. I have a qualifying law degree from London.
My name is Todd. I started teaching because of my love of traveling and learning about other people's cultures. I was born in Cincinnati, OH. So if you study with me, you would be learning English from a Native-English speaker. I graduated from the International TEFL Academy where I earned my certification to teach English as a foreign language. In addition to Teaching, I am also an Artist. I love to paint and draw. I use these skills in my lessons. I enjoy the creativity of designing exercises and activities. It is my belief that the more senses that are involved in the learning process; the more English will be understood and easily grasped.

"I had over 30 English lessons with Adrienne when I was preparing to immigrate to Canada. She's a passionate teacher, and not only boosted my confidence, but also took my English to the next level. I'm currently working as a writer for a big Canadian company and I feel that our lessons helped me to get here." - Thiago "Adrienne is simply the best! She helped me achieve my goal which was improving my fluency with very entertaining lessons. Thanks to her I feel more confident when speaking in English." - Monica ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Howdy! (That is 'Hello' in Texan) Keep reading to discover more about me and how I will help you like I've helped hundreds of others...................................... I work with all levels on conversation, test preparation, job interviews, blogging, pronunciation, singing without an accent, and more. I am an American teacher from Texas (living in Germany), and I have a Bachelor's Degree in education with over 12 years of experience teaching English. First...we will begin by creating a specific, measurable, realistic, and time-bound goal together so that you are the one in charge of your learning and can see your progress. Next...we get busy talking! I teach conversationally based classes where I guide you through conversation based around specific topics. While you are speaking, I am taking notes to send you at the end of class. This allows you to focus on speaking and speaking confidently without being constantly interrupted with corrections. While we always work on your specific goals, I also watch for things as they come up in class in order for us to have 'mini lessons' or 'learnable moments.' Finally...I send you a google document with notes, corrections, and homework activities. What do I specialize in? What makes me the best teacher for you? What makes me a good teacher is my ability to really create an environment of safety for you. I have many students who in the beginning are very shy or quite scared and within a few lessons they are the ones doing all the talking! I also specialize in native speaker pronunciation. My technique involves less "repeat after me" and more "kinesthetics." This means I give you very specific mouth positions and even body movements and silly faces to help you master and remember flawless pronunciation. So if you're someone who has always wanted to have perfect pronunciation, what are you waiting for? What can I help you learn? I work on whatever you want to work on! -writing (work emails, personal narratives, summaries, blogging) -speaking (both casual and academic/professional conversation) -reading and vocabulary -grammatical structures -pronunciation -IELTS speaking practice -university applications No-Show/Cancellation Policy: I require more than 24 hour notice for cancellations because that is not enough time for another student to fill that spot. ***If you are a no-show and I haven't heard from you that you're on your way then class will be marked completed at 20 past the hour. Thank you for understanding!
