I live in the city in South Africa but I am crazy about the South African bushveld and therefore spend most of my weekends on our game farm located just outside of the city. I love to travel, hike, camp, read and cook and try to do as much of this as possible in my free time. My parents and brother live in Portugal so I try to take a trip to Europe once a year to visit them. I am also currently completing my degree in Biotechnology via a correspondence university. Teaching English online has allowed me to peruse my passions while still being able to work and do a job that I love.read more
I am a level 5 TEFL qualified teacher with eight years teaching experience. I started my teaching journey when I took a teaching position at a Kumon centre in South Africa in 2012.. I taught both mathematics and English to students of many ages ranging from 5 years to 18 years old. From there I became a private tutor to a few select families where I assisted my students in all their school subjects. I started teaching English as a second language online to children and adults in the beginning of 2020.
I believe in making my lessons very interactive so that my students can practise using English as much as possible. Most lessons include grammar, vocabulary and pronunciation focus as these three areas are essential if you are to master English. Once I have introduced a concept I try to show my students how they will use it in everyday life. It is very important that a student can see the practical application of something they have learnt so that they can stay motivated to continue learning. I do believe in assigning homework because it helps to reinforce concepts, but I understand not all students have the time to complete homework. We can decide together on the amount of homework you would like to receive, if any.
