My name is Emma Loftus and I am from South Africa. I have a Bachelors's degree in Humanities and majord in Linguistics, Psychology, and Philosophy. I also completed my TEFOL.
I have worked as a tutor in 2018 during my studies in a school in my home town (Stellenbosch). I taught English and Mathematics specifically to kids between the ages of 7 and 12. English was their L2 but was fairly advanced. They were able to speak and listen in English and had very basic reading and writing skills.
I have also worked for Landi English (2019 till present). The ages that I have taught were between 3 and 15 all Chinese first language students at levels that range from complete beginner to intermediate.
Although teaching a full class as I did in 2018 was enjoyable, I have found online teaching far more rewarding and enjoyable. With online teaching I am able to give the students one on one attention and address their difficulties directly. With one on one online teaching I am able to see visibly each student grow in confidence and ability. Additionally, I have found teaching English to be more at my strength as opposed to teaching Mathematics.
