About Me

Hi,

I am Yumna, a native English speaker from South Africa, and a certified ESL teacher.
I have five years of teaching experience with English as a foreign language. I mostly taught Arab students, English and my last job was at the University of Ha'il in Saudi Arabia. I also taught English at the KUMON centre for 3 years. I taught all four skills: reading, writing, listening and speaking using the Oxford Headway textbooks.

I believe the best way to learn English is through verbal communication and by using visual aids, a student's native language should only be used if they cannot understand a point in English.
