English/ Afrikaans teacher with 25 years experience offering Afrikaans/English, speaking, writing, literature, grammar, etc in Durban

Methodology

I base my teaching approach on the student's preferred learning style. Furthermore, I look for content that is interesting to the student based on his/her interests e.g. baseball, music, etc. Lessons are structured around the elements the student are battling with.

Background

I am a teacher/tutor/writer and communication expert with teaching experience spanning from intermediate phase to post graduate level. In the past year alone I've tutored 20 students individually who increased their mark by 10% minimum in 4 months. I am not only a Anfrikaans tutor, but can also assist with English, my second language, communication, marketing and public relations.

Rates

Transportation Fee : R400
Rate for online lessons : R200/h
Rate for 5 hours of lessons : R180
Rate for 10 hours of lessons : R150

Details

Rates will differ per student level, requirements, commitment. If I need to travel, costs will be added if I need to travel more than 15km.
