I am an English teacher with a Masters degree and 5 years experience

Methodology

My approach to teaching is patient and considerate. I first determine the learner's pace and best suited learning approach/method prior to commencing with lessons at the learner's pace. My experience includes teaching at primary, secondary and tertiary level.

Background

I have been teaching English on Skype for 4 years. My current work also includes the supervision of the research programme for final year Masters iof Business Leadership students at the Unisa Graduate School for Business Leadership. All my students have obtained their degrees with a 70% average. I have taught over 20 final year students. My method includes acknowledgement that people learn at different paces and via different methods. I seek to first identify this information prior to commencing with lessons.
