An international relations student. I'm an English conversationalist. Teaching style is casual, consider me an old friend

About the lesson

My lessons are 30 minutes to an hour-long. They are divided into 4 sections:
Reading and comprehension questions and discussion.

Teaching style - Delegation, it's important for me to encourage my learner's capability and commend their efforts. I find that giving compliments to students when they do well boosts their confidence and encourages them to go beyond the average standard of achievement.

Discussion - At the end of the lesson I encourage a free conversation based on the topic learnt to assess the student's understanding. At this point, I encourage questions so they get clarity on concepts they might have missed. Overall my students can look forward to having fun while learning.

About Helen

Hello, my name is Helen Siziba

I have 6 years of professional telesales experience and am currently pursuing a BA in International Relations. I'm a fluid individual, welcoming, warm and blissfully easy to talk to.

I'm an avid reader who's lived a thousand lives through literature. I'm drawn to authenticity and in my quest for human connections I value simplicity and truth; therefore I'm an open book.

I believe in active listening and in giving people room to be who they are. I'm empathetic, patient and have a child like curiosity about the world and its inhabitants so I ask a lot of questions.

I love philosophy, happy endings and avocados but not necessarily in that order :)
