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 am a teacher with many years of experience, both in the classroom and in business. I have a broad spectrum of knowledge and experience in journalism, media, engineering, business and philosophy. I can help you with KET, PET, IELTS / TOEFL test preparation, Business English as well as Interview Preparation and General Conversation. I can also tailor-make a curriculum for you according to your specific needs. I have a B Tech engineering degree, a Post-Grad Diploma in Post-School Education, a Masters in Philosophy and a Cambridge CELTA Certificate. During my career, I have taught engineering, journalism and English as a foreign language. My teaching experience has been mostly in South Africa, but I have spent two years teaching English in the Middle East. My diverse education and experience places me in a ideal position to help an equally diverse client base with mastering English in their particular context. My approach to teaching is descriptive rather that prescriptive, with the goal of quickly building vocabulary and fluency without being over-encumbered with unnecessarily complicated grammar. I believe in contextualising every lesson, to give my clients the confidence to converse in English in the very specific contexts they find themselves in from day to day. Also, Im a nice guy, and will treat you with the respect and compassion every student needs from a teacher. The learning environment is critical and the relationship between the student and teacher equally so. You will find my general knowledge engaging, and with my clear pronunciation and articulation, you'll soon be on your way to English proficiency. As one of my Saudi TOEFL students said recently, "Mr.Mathew, my latest TOEFL results came out. It's 87. Thank you very much, I wouldn't have made it without your help. Words aren't enough to thank you." He's now studying Engineering in Washington State USA. Let me do the same for you!
ツ Hi there, I have been an ESL teacher, business skills-soft skills trainer for more than three years, and I love it. I have worked for technology companies as a marketing and sales specialist for more than five years, I left the business world to find my purpose and write a book on personal identity. 📌I am passionate about teaching, and my knowledge of linguistics and phonology is very strong. This means I am well equipped with exercises and activities to improve your pronunciation, and with it, your fluidity of speech. 📌If you're a student, I can help with exam or IELTS preparation, or if you're a business professional, I can help you with anything from letter writing to conversation skills. 📌Even if you're just interested in learning English for fun and meeting people, I can help you develop your language skills to be top-notch. As a language learner, I can appreciate the time and effort that it takes to learn a new language. It's very rewarding to share my knowledge of English and open new opportunities for those who want to communicate effectively. 📌My preferred method of teaching involves using real-world situations. While reading articles helps with pronunciation and vocabulary, and accent reduction. My goal is to get you thinking and getting creative with the English you learn. I want my students to be excited and curious to learn English as well as the culture of this beautiful language. I speak four different languages and I am aware of the challenge that students deal with when practicing a new language. I am here to help you and motivate you on your journey!!!😊😊😊😊
I would describe my teaching style as interactive, supportive and creative. I adapt my lessons to ensure I meet each of my students needs. I've had experience as an online teacher and I think the reason why some of my students still choose me as their online teacher is because I focus on their individual needs as well as work with each of my students at their own pace. I am a people-person, I love meeting new people and learning about their cultures and backgrounds.
