I completed my 4 year Education Degree (Foundation Phase 6-10 year old learners) (Cum Laude) at the University of Port-Elizabeth. I have 13 years teaching experience in South African schools where I taught Afrikaans and English speaking learners as well as learners from different cultures. These classes varied with regard to the socio-economic backgrounds of the learners. Having an interest in learners with specific needs, I had the opportunity to teach autistic children for a year.
My teaching method is to facilitate students to learn through experience. I see the role of the teacher as a guide that motivates and stimulates the learner in a student-centered environment. I elicit ideas and answers from the student rather then to just teach. My student is always actively involve in the lesson.My lessons are structured around real life situations and therefore the student will be able to learn new vocabulary and grammar in context. I believe fluency is very important and I will provide many fluency activities to build the students' speaking ability, speaking confidence, comprehension and the correct pronunciation of words.
I value a teacher-student environment where we treat each other with respect and support one another.
