Personal Description:

I am passionate about improving and developing literacy skills. With over 20 years of teaching experience, I currently work as a Reading & Literacy Therapist working with primary school children & adults who experience literacy challenges. I work from three locations: Fourways (Kingfisher D), Bordeaux South as well as Strathavon in Sandton.

By nature, I am a people person, a nurturer and a born teacher. I am known to be intuitive, patient and caring.

In my free time, I'm an avid reader, occasional amateur artist and I'm fascinated by the human condition.

Tutoring Experience:

With over 20 years of teaching & training experience, I have worked in a variety of settings with both adults and children, in groups and on a one-to-one basis.

I have worked as a primary school teacher, a teacher-librarian, an English tutor and a Reading & Literacy Therapist. I've also worked in adult literacy training (ABET) as a consultant as well as computer software training (adults - beginner through to advanced).

I spent more than a decade working overseas as an English teacher & private English tutor (elementary school, middle school, high school & adults in upper management & corporate).

I've worked with people from all walks of life, here and internationally. It has been an inspiring journey.

Tutoring Approach:

Learning should be an enjoyable process. I strive to build confidence in every person I teach, as confidence is fundamental to the learning process. I believe that every learner is unique and comes with their own set of needs, strengths and weaknesses.

Children & Adults
Learning to read, write and spell does not happen overnight. There is no quick fix. It is a process that takes time, patience and dedication, especially if you or your child is currently experiencing difficulties.

Adults
Learning to communicate in a second or third language takes a lot of commitment. It involves more than the acquisition of vocabulary and grammar knowledge. Understanding the culture of a language and the context in which it is used is important too. However, it is equally important to have the opportunity to practice English conversational skills in a relaxed and stress-free environment, where constructive feedback can be given, without the fear of embarrassment.

I never give up on someone who is willing to learn.
