Hello English students! My name is Daniella, and I am a qualified English teacher from South Africa.
I have been teaching High School students for four years, but I have tutored English for six years. I have also been tutoring German for seven years. I believe that this experience in teaching languages has prepared me to help you improve your English.
I have taught and tutored students of all ages (from six-year-olds, to sixty-five-year-olds), and of various nationalities (from Chinese, German, and French, to Angolan and Mozambican). Each of these students had a different reason for learning English – be it to improve their conversational skills, improve their Business English, practice their pronunciation, work on their writing skills, or even prepare for a specific examination (such as the IELTS) – and as such, I am aware of the various reasons you may have for wanting to take English lessons.
Apart from my qualifications in Education, I have a BA degree in English, Music and Law, as well as a BA (Hons) degree in English.
While English is my first language, I also speak German and Afrikaans fluently and so the challenges that accompany learning a new language are not new to me. My knowledge of these languages helps me to understand the grammar systems of both English and other languages more easily.
My lessons are interesting and engaging, and structured around your abilities and needs. I look forward to getting to know you, and to hearing why you want to improve your English skills.
