    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 :)

    Improve your negotiation skills using the Harvard method
    It has been said everything is negotiable. You might have experienced this early in life, for example when you discovered your bedtime was not cast in stone. Years later you probably found out your negotiation skills had gradually become more important. Indeed, they are an essential competence for everyone who wants to achieve something. As a professional, you have to negotiate a lot, too. You are likely to find yourself mediating between clients involved in a conflict or negotiating about certain clauses in a contract. Besides that, you might have talks with your employer about salary, holidays and other (secondary) working conditions. We'll use the Harvard method to prepare you for situations like the one pictured above. Step by step, we'll pass through every stage of this famed method, which aims rather at creating a win-win situation than beating the other party. The aim of this course is twofold: 1. You are able to reproduce the theory behind negotiation skills and to apply that knowledge to specific cases as a means of preparing for the actual negotiation. 2. You are able to negotiate in an international environment, using negotiation techniques and communication skills that are suitable for that context. In other words, we'll discuss the theory and bring it into practice through cases that are specifically developed for this course.
