    English literature, language, comprehension, and fluency.

    I have worked as a supplementary English tutor in Johannesburg South Africa for the past six years - mostly at primary and secondary school level. I am a fluent English speaker, and majored in English Literature and History of Art in my Bachelor of Arts degree, for which I received a distinction. I also tutored at a collegiate level in History of Art.

    I put a lot of emphasis on the role of literature and reading in learning a language, and hope to use resources like books, articles and even films to inspire my students. I also like to make classes fun and exciting for the learners.

    About Me

    I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa where I have lived my whole life. I am moving to Amsterdam to complete my Masters degree in Comparative Cultural Analysis at the Vrije Universiteit.

    I have a passion and love for English, and reading. Since I was very young you could always catch me with my nose in a book. I also enjoy watching films, walking my dogs, and practicing yoga.

    I get on very well with young children - and have had experience with kids of all ages through either volunteer work, tutoring or camp counselling.

    I am hoping to pursue a career in academia or education.

    English, conversational and prep for official tests
    My lessons are completely conversation-based. This can be a bit scary and uncomfortable at first, but. as we say in the Netherlands, practice makes art! The more English you allow into your life, the more naturally it will come to you and the better and more confident you will become in using English. All lessons are tailored to the personal wishes of the students in combination with my assessment of what is needed to improve :)
