About Me

Good day,

My name is Taige Tyler Thom, I come from Cape Town , South Africa. I have my TEFL accreditation and have been teaching English online since 2014.

I speak English and Afrikaans fluently, I can also speak basic Mandarin. I am also a speed reader and I love teaching kids. My hobbies include avid reading , watching series , family-orientated activities, dancing , photography and taking long walks to clear my head.

I have a lot of experience teaching children, I can assist with speaking practice, grammar practice, pronunciation skills , reading and comprehension skills, business English and any other skills that students may need help with .

I specialize in conversational English classes. I also specialize in IELTS preparation. Conversational English classes are beneficial, because they allow you to gain real-world experience with regards to how to speak to native English speakers and how to interact with people. It is also important to know which goal you want to focus on when planning your English journey, with that being said - should you wish to have classes with me, I recommend you message me with this in mind. It will help us to create and have classes that specifically suit your needs , weaknesses and strengths.

Although classes are beneficial , and crucial in your English journey , it is also imperative that you have real-life experience or at least try to immerse yourself in the English language, by means of books, music, movies and the like.

Even though I am South African, my family ( immediate and extended) are from America ( my mother's side ) and Great Britain ( my father's side). I am able to teach English using a neutral and Americanized accent. Due to this, I am well-versed in accent reduction and linking words.

I am well-versed in teaching all aspects of the English language. Please do not hesitate to contact me with anything you might be struggling with. I am able to assist with English transcription , proof-reading, editing and General English skills such as: idiomatic expressions , grammatical structures , useful expressions for travelers, pronunciation , phonics, basic English skills and everyday / business English.

I look forward to speaking with my new and old students soon.

Sincerely,
Teacher Tay
