About Me

Hello, my name is Christo and I speak English and Afrikaans fluently. I also speak German at an upper intermediate level.

I am a South African citizen and have been living here for the majority of my life. I learned to speak German when our family moved to Stuttgart, Germany, on an expatriate contract when I was still in school. During our stay in Germany I had a great desire to communicate with people around me; this helped me to learn German in a comfortable and practical environment.

On a professional level, I am a qualified teacher and have been teaching language to students at both primary and secondary school level. To date, I have taught English to over 1000 students on various online platforms. Although I am a teacher, my main focus of study was my Degree in Human Movement Science with a primary focus on Anatomy, Physiology and Nutrition.

I have a wide range of interests outside of teaching which include: surfing, snorkeling & scuba diving, snowboarding, hiking, mountain biking, photography, videography, guitar, tourism, travel, cultures as well as exercise and nutrition - having competed in bodybuilding and fitness at a national level in the past.

I have an extroverted personality and enjoy meeting people and learning from different cultural backgrounds.
