I enjoy one to one coaching and students have invariably found it useful.I have a variety of experience connected with the teaching of English: I have marked AS and A level English literature exams for Cambridge International Examinations, and more recently, O level (IGCSE) examinations. I have taught in UK as a supply teacher. I can teach both English language and English literature and have taught learners of all ages. I have been part of a team writing English language text books which are currently being used in schools in South Africa and Zimbabwe. Although I have helped many older learners, I love teaching younger learners , those who have trouble with dyslexia and have lost confidence. I have also taught English to many of those for whom English is not their mother tongue.
I have been teaching English for many years, both in a private senior school for girls in Zimbabwe, and in various senior schools in U.K. My most enjoyable teaching experiences have been teaching English literature in schools and teaching as a private tutor. I have taught young adults who are new to South Africa, and need help with conversational skills, and also have trouble over the correct use of English in a business or social context.
I also very much enjoy teaching learners of 6 years and over who need extra experience or a bit of confidence… or some extra English coaching.
I have been told that I am encouraging, warm, approachable and understanding, and have a good sense of humour! I enjoy finding out what are the specific problems that a learner may be coping with, and thinking up and putting into practice tailor-made lessons for that student.
I have had very successful interaction with young learners as I have written a number of learners' books and some 'fun' ones for children from 5 years old onwards.
