Personal Description:

I am a qualified Graphic Designer. I teach from my home in Ficksburg. I have many years' of experience teaching. I have exhibited together with my students at the time during Cherry Festivals, as well as at private venues and agricultural shows.
As far as tutoring English goes, I have brought up two children, who are through University and I taught them both my love for the English language.

Tutoring Experience:

National Diploma in Graphic Art, Bloemfontein Technicon 1979.
Taught part-time Calligraphy at the Art School for students who took evening classes.
Have taught High School students and adults since 1992 at intervals from home and at the local library hall. Subjects: Sketching, Drawing technique, Painting, Design, Calligraphy and Lettering, Illustration, Packaging, Art History I & II.
English - I have no specific teaching experience as such, but am an avid reader and writer. I feel I am more than qualified to help a child with the correct usage of the English language through easy spelling and sounding techniques and speaking with confidence at Primary level and also Grammar for High school level.

Tutoring Approach:

I am prepared to do 6-week courses at a fixed price during the term. I am also prepared to do week by week classes, depending on the demand. I feel a student must learn the the basics of drawing properly before advancing to painting, etc. All media are taught e.g. oils, acrylics, pastels, charcoal and pencil techniques. Design includes computer-work.
English - I believe language is to be enjoyed through a love of reading and writing. Visual material is also important but books can bring language to life and creating a passion for correct English leads to a life-time of confident interaction with others. Extra lessons after school can boost a learner's confidence and achievements!
