Greetings, Verblingites! I'm a qualified and experienced English teacher. Reading is an excellent way to improve your language skills and I believe that it is one of the most important and wonderful things in life. For these reasons, I teach all of my lessons through stories.
I've loved reading since I was a child, so I decided to study English Literature and Linguistics in university. After obtaining my degree, I spent 3 years teaching English in South Korea. During that time, I was also lucky enough to travel to many other countries. I learnt so much about myself, the world, and humanity. I decided that I wanted to learn how to tell stories instead of just reading them, so I returned to South Africa to study photography and filmmaking. To this day, I spend all of my free time reading, writing, and making films.
In my lessons we'll read everything from novels, to poetry and you'll improve so much more than just your reading skills. Reading will help you practice your listening and comprehension skills as well. Your English grammar, fluency and conversation will improve, while your vocabulary grows and grows.
My lessons are currently aimed at mature teenagers and adults who love reading and are intermediate to advanced English learners. My teaching style is very flexible and you will choose how much time you want to spend on English every week. You will also have the opportunity to help me choose the novels we will read together.
I can't wait to hear from you. Together we will explore many amazing stories and improve your English at the same time.
