About Me

Hello everyone.
My name is Michelle. I am from Pretoria, South Africa.

I am a TEFL qualified teacher, with over a year of teaching experience on Verbling. I was an English tutor before joining Verbling for many years.

Who are my lessons for?

My lessons are focused on adults who have achieved Intermediate level and above, who wish to take their English to the next stage. Whether it be conversational skills, grammar, writing or business English.

What do my lessons consist of?

My speaking lessons are based on conversation topics that you will encounter in your daily life. We will look at new vocabulary around each topic and discuss different opinions about the topic. If you would like homework to practice what we have covered in class then I will provide that too.

For grammar lessons I provide either in-depth lessons focusing on the rules of grammar and lots of practice, or we can just brush up your existing knowledge with a chance to practice.

I also do Business English lessons, where we explore common phrases, vocabulary and business skills (writing Business letters, documents, etc). I will also help you get ready for that dreaded interview in English. We will go over the tough questions and look at the best ways to answer them with confidence.

If any of this has sparked your interest book a trial lesson with me and together we can plan your journey to becoming a fluent English speaker.
