Recently qualified postgrad student offering assistance in Exam Preparation for English, Academic Essay Writing, Creative Writing and English Literature.

Methodology

I can teach students how to think about the writing process so that the basic elements of their writing process improve. I can also help polish and refine skills that are already in good shape. As far as exam preparation goes, I will teach students effective strategies for English Language and Literature studies that they can continue to use later in life.

Background

I recently graduated from my second postgraduate degree. I have lots of experience in academic writing, including writing my own master's thesis. I can help with planning, structuring and refining writing skills, as well as provide language proofreading. For high school student, I am very experienced in exam preparation as well English literature and poetry. I was DUX scholar at my high school as was the top matriculant in my district. I completed my undergraduate degree with a distinction and have subsequently studied a postgraduate degree in the USA.

LeOui's CV

LeOui Janse van Rensburg

PERSONAL PROFILE
I am a qualified EFL teacher with a passion for language and communication.
I hold multiple postgraduate degrees in the field of classical music and am a hardworking and dedicated person. My studies and work have taken me to different countries and have exposed me to many different cultures and customs. The creativity and tenacity that the world of classical music requires are both skills which also make me a better teacher. I enjoy finding interesting and creative ways to engage students and am committed to each individual student’s progress and understanding of the work.
I am friendly and work well with students of all ages. I know the influence that a good teacher can have and continue to look for ways in which I can improve and be such a figure in my students’ lives.

RELEVANT EXPERIENCE
I am experienced in multiple, all of which, I believe, contribute to my teaching style and approach.
Firstly, I have experience teaching both as a singing teacher and as a tutor/au pair. While I have not specifically taught English as a foreign language, I believe that the teaching experiences I have had in these other fields have been tremendously helpful.
I speak a number of different languages: I am a native English and Afrikaans speaker. In addition to being fluent in German, I also took basic Italian and French courses. Being able to compare different languages within the Indo-European family of languages has, not only, enhanced my understanding of English, but has also exposed me to different ways and possibilities of teaching a foreign language.
Lastly, my education and experience as a classical singer and performer mean that I have experience dealing with people and keeping them engaged.

HOBBIES
Naturally, given my studies and background, music is a real passion of mine. As a singer, I am fortunate to be able to combine this passion with my love of language and poetry, as the textual aspect of opera and art song is vitally important to interpretation.
I also enjoy travelling and especially trying out local cuisines. I love reading, watching films and learning more about the world. One of my favourite television shows is the British panel show QI.
