I've got a BA(Hons) in English and History and a PGCE have been teaching at a secondary school full-time in Johannesburg, South Africa since 2015. I'm moving to London to study an MA and can't imagine taking a break in my teaching career - it's a passion, not a job!
I'll be teaching young people and adults who aren't first language English speakers how to be more confident, articulate and understandable in the tricky territory that is spoken and written English.
Our main learning vehicle will be intentional conversation and the written word and lessons will be tailored according to the needs of each student.
I take teaching and the needs of my students seriously so come ready to enjoy yourself, work hard and see progress in your English as we work together!
I pride myself on being a teacher who brings the best out of students and who manages to combine the excitement of learning with the grit and determination necessary in a way that helps students flourish.
Before leaving university I was already tutoring first year students in the skills of critical thought and essay writing and then pursued a career in education at a secondary school level. The school I've been based at since 2015 is a diverse school in Johannesburg that has constantly grown my capacity as a teacher. I have learnt to engage with and enjoy people from every walk of life and as such, have learnt how to be flexible and helpful to a wide range of people.
I was in various leadership positions at the school and so am exceptionally well organised, professional in my attitude towards education and yet have not lost the childlike love for learning and humor that is necessary to succeed.
