Learning a new language is not easy, but it is possible. As Zig Ziglar once said, “You don’t have to be great to start, you just have to start to become great.’ I would like to help you improve and build on your English whether you are a beginner, intermediate or would like to improve on your conversational English.
My speciality is Hospitality Management and I have worked for six years on a luxury cruise ship, beginning as a waitress and working my way up to Assistant Maitre d'hôtel. I helped many of my fellow colleagues improve on their English and with other language areas related to customer service. This has given me an excellent grounding in working with people from different cultures, backgrounds, and nationalities globally.
If you work in hospitality and are looking to improve your English, need help with food terminology, unsure of how to address certain situations or just need help on approaching guests or any other related areas, I am able to help you.
I also have many years of experience in teaching young children. I have an understanding of how to engage children of all ages, plan creative and imaginative lessons and I am aware of the different milestones for children and include relevant activities to ensure they reach them.
I can relate to how hard it may be for some students to start learning a new language, as I studied Spanish a few years ago.No two students are the same which is why I will tailor-make lesson plans to suit your level of English and your specific goals.
My hobbies include reading, cooking, photography, being out in nature and more recently cake decorating. I am a passionate person with a calm and patient demeanor.
I came back to South Africa a few years ago and I miss traveling and interacting with different people which is why I am excited to meet you and join you on your next adventure.
