To enable students to develop the confidence to speak English they need to feel connected to the language - it must be accessible and interesting to them. I like to encourage the students to tell me more about themselves through different methods of expression, eg poetry, music, story-telling, journal writing, in order for me to develop a course that is individually suited to them. This allows them to trust the process of learning the language in a trustful and enthusiastic way.
I have many years experience as an early childhood educator and trainer of early childhood teachers, in South Africa and China. Most of the student teachers I have taught had English as a second or Foreign language and so we developed interesting creative ways to deepen the understanding and use of English, in a non-threatening way.
My rate is dependent on whether the student is available within the Riverstone area (or can come to my home). I'm prepared to travel up to 8 Kilometers within the area but if travel outside this perimeter is required I will charge $2 per Kilometer.
