Retail Sourcing Specialist & Certified TEFL teacher improving your English language skills.

Methodology

I work with students of all ages and levels from beginner to advanced. In my lessons, you will not memorise long lists of vocabulary. I believe one of the most effective ways to feel confident with learning a new language is to enjoy having conversations. My lessons are engaging and fun with lots of encouragement and constructive feedback and we will practice language that you will want to use outside of the classroom. Additionally, I tailor my instructions and teaching materials to provide a more personalized teaching experience. I guarantee that after my class, you will feel more comfortable speaking in English.

Background

I was born in the U.K but have lived most of my life in sunny South Africa. I am a native English speaker with a Bachelor’s Degree and have worked for most of my career in the retail and supply chain field where I had the privilege to mentor many people. I am a certified TEFL Level 5 English and Business English teacher and have worked with young children as well as teaching English to adults.
