South African English tutor with an Honours degree in English and Philosophy

Methodology

My teaching philosophy is to speak about what you're interested in. I believe that one can only improve one's vocabulary, grammar and speaking and written English by speaking about what you're passionate about. My lessons are about you and your interests, but if you want to speak about me and my culture or interests I'm happy to do that.

Background

I am a proofreader and copy-editor who has an Honours degree in English and Philosophy. I have been teaching for over 20 years', both online and in high school. I have taught hundreds of students who have passed their required courses.
