About Me

Greetings! I'm Natasha, originally from Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), and I relocated to South Africa with my parents when I was quite young. I embarked on my teaching journey in traditional classrooms in 2015 and transitioned to online teaching in 2020.

[Recommended for individuals aged 18 and above, and not suitable for those with very basic English skills.] My instructional focus centres on elevating your spoken English proficiency. Through engaging online videos and articles, you'll acquire the ability to converse on a diverse array of subjects, spanning language, culture, business, sports, politics, music, the future, the environment, sustainability, technology, travel, and much more. I leverage TED Talks as a resource to explore enjoyable, intriguing, and thought-provoking topics.

In my sessions, you'll:

Develop greater confidence in speaking English
Expand your vocabulary
Enhance your grasp of grammar and pronunciation
Acquire familiarity with common English expressions and new phrasal verbs
Hone your skills in expressing opinions and agreeing/disagreeing with ideas
Strengthen your reading and listening capabilities
Ultimately gain the ability to converse effortlessly with native speakers!

Feel free to join me for a trial lesson and determine if my classes suit your needs 😊

Let me tell you about my trial lessons! In a trial lesson, we'll do a few things to understand how well you know English:

Speaking Test: We'll talk to see how well you can speak English.
Listening and Comprehension Test: We'll listen to something, and I'll check if you understand it.
Reading Test (if needed): If necessary, we'll read something together to see how well you can read in English.
Evaluation of the 4 Macro Skills in English: I'll look at how you do in four important English skills!
