My name is Teresa Fuchs and I live in Somerset West near Cape Town in South Africa. I have a BA degree specializing in English from the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. I followed up with a post graduate diploma in Education from the University of South Africa. I taught English in Rio de Janeiro for two and a half years working for a English Language School called Feedback as well as having a number of private students both children and professionals. I also taught at an English Language center in Johannesburg for a short while, called Communicate I am currently in publishing working for Cengage publishers, in a sales management capacity and before that, with a company called Addison Wesley, for a number of years. A large part of my work is delivering presentations to lecturers across the country, as well as coaching and mentoring a team of six people. I am looking very forward to teaching English and have a great love for the language. My classes will be relaxed and comfortable focusing on building up vocabulary as well as good pronunciation. Should students need business English classes, these lessons will be more formal focusing on correct grammar and good writing style. I will also source interesting articles depending on the level of the students and we will discuss these in depth to build up vocabulary and pronunciation this way. Through many years of dealing with people on all levels in sales, I will strive to make my students feel comfortable and encourage them in every way possible, to succeed.
