EFL/ESL Online English Language Tutor (Individuals)

I'm a TEFL Certified (ITQUK) freelance EFL/ESL tutor. I’m also a highly skilled Finance Professional with extensive experience in the International Development sector.

My First Language is English, and I’m fluent in Afrikaans. I have intermediate level skills in French, and I’m at beginner level in Spanish, Portuguese and Arabic (MSA).

Since 2020, I've taught more than 240 lesson hours to students at all levels. My students come from diverse backgrounds and age groups, and are located in various parts of the world, including Canada, Taiwan, France, Tunisia, Senegal and Belgium.

My lessons are student-centred, engaging, and flexible! Lessons are continuously adapted to suit the individual; every lesson is structured based on the needs of the student.

The focus of lessons will initially be based on a student needs assessment carried out at the start of your course, and subsequent lessons will be adapted based on your progress throughout the duration of a specific course. Specific learning areas may include:
* Refining pronunciation
* Practicing everyday language and conversational skills
* Exam preparation, focusing on specific grammar and/or vocabulary
* Reading comprehension and practice
* Writing correction and practice
* CV and Cover letter drafting
* Job interview preparation

Lessons are conducted almost entirely in English. This has shown to be the most effective way for students to learn a foreign or second language!

It is recommended that you book an initial course of at least 20 hours.
