Johannesburg, South Africa


I am an individual with many talents. I love meeting different people and learning from them. I have a curious mind, always intrigued by the unknown, and fearless in adventure. I am confident and competent at what at what I do and can easily improvise. I have experience in drama, possess a great sense of humor and like to emit a positive aura. As an English teacher primarily, I do believe that I bring a pleasant ambiance to the classroom, fostering a comfortable and productive pedagogy for my students. I come with seven years of teaching experience, two of which were in Saudi Arabia. With a background in Psychology and having been involved in counselling, I am sensitive and well acquainted to learning anxieties and can assist students in navigating through and around learning barriers when and where they may arise.

My style of teaching is learner centered, very dynamic and complimented with various teaching aids and resources. I am a good swimmer too.
