Su di me

If you are looking for a fun, patient, friendly tutor who will develop your English conversation skills and build your vocabulary specific to your areas of interest, I can help! My aim is to guide you to reach your learning goals and to keep you motivated and engaged! During our conversations, I constantly listen to which areas of the language you need more help (be it grammar, vocabulary or pronunciation) and I build this into our lessons.

I have 11 years teaching experience which includes:
- children from 4 - 18 years old
- business professionals
- General English for travel or relocation to other countries
- IELTS and TOEFL exam preparation
- EAP (English for Academic purposes) i.e. university students who need help with academic writing or editing

My certificates include:
• Honours degree in Social Work (University of Cape Town)
• CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults)
• CETYL (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Young Learners)
• DELTA (Diploma in English Language Teaching to Adults) Module 1

I look forward to meeting you - please book a trial lesson with me.
