Qualified and experienced English teacher able to tutor up to grade 11 level

Methodology

My teaching methodology has depended on the needs of the pupils. I have used a holistic approach combining all the skills that I have learnt over the years, from both my academic and practical experience. Good lesson planning is essential in my teaching as it ensures greater flow, structure and communication, creating a clear and safe learning environment.

Background

I am an English and history teacher up to O level standard GCSE. I have been teaching in various institutions since graduating, with a history degree from the University of Cape Town in 1983. I have a Montessori international diploma. I had my own school teaching up to twenty pupils. In 2005 I attained a postgraduate certificate in education intermediate and senior phase (UNISA). The number of students I have taught has varied from one on one, to a class of forty pupils.
