Personal Description:

Hello! I am passionate about languages, and how they are learnt. I studied French, German, and Mandarin as my undergraduate majors. I then completed my French Honours degree, with translation being the focus of my Honours thesis. I hope to one day establish myself as a French translator. I plan to complete my Masters in French. I love creative hobbies - I paint and draw. I also love nature, fishing, and spending time with my family. I play the piano and am a passionate foodie!

Tutoring Experience:

I worked for the French department at Stellenbosch University as a tutor. During this time, I took classes of first-years five times a week, and did one-on-one tutoring sessions with a blind student. I assisted one of the lecturers with marking and admin. I have also been working as an ESL teacher since the beginning of this year (2017). I spent the first six months of this year in China teaching English at a private language school, where I taught children aged 3 to 13. I now work for an online English school and teach Chinese students English.

Tutoring Approach:

As someone who has learnt three foreign languages (and dabbled in Latin!), I feel that I have an understanding of which methods work for students learning a new language. My own experience as a student has shaped how I teach - I know the difficulties and how to get around them. Having taught children a foreign language IN that language has taught me a huge amount as well. I am a gentle and encouraging teacher. I know that when learning a language or a subject which you find difficult, you may feel intimidated or embarrassed to try - I always try to support and encourage my students to avoid them feeling this. I also love to personalise my lessons so they suit the level and interests of my students.
