Experience, training and skills

It was while studying Economics and Finance at the University of Cape Town that I discovered my love for teaching and education. I was the private English tutor to 6 South Korean children and 3 adults. I would diligently visit their homes after lectures each day to provide them with one-to-one English lessons.

After completing my Bachelor of Commerce degree, I decided to further pursue my passion for education by travelling to South Korea where I taught English as a Second Language to high school and middle school students. While my experience was at times challenging, it was rewarding and stimulating. The cultural exchange was an especially enriching experience during my time in the middle and high school environment. I thoroughly enjoyed teaching children from such a vastly different background to my own.

On my return to South Africa, I decided to focus on education as a career. I thus found a full time job as a primary school teacher while completing my Postgraduate Certificate in Education through the University of South Africa. This gave me additional experience in the fundamentals of educating younger children from different economic backgrounds. During this time, I also tutored a child with extensive behavioural and academic challenges.

In February 2018, I relocated to London where I have been teaching as a Year 3 teacher at an independent school since April. I have recently decided to deepen my knowledge of education and will be commencing with further studies towards ultimately achieving a qualification in Educational and Child Psychology.

My Teaching Philosophy

I believe that each child has his/her own unique style of learning. For this reason, lessons need to be created to support the learning style and individual characteristics of the child. Children must be encouraged to do their best in a compassionate, kind and supportive environment while being challenged to reach their maximum potential.

Choose me if…

You are looking for a calm, patient and kind teacher who is able to assist your child in reaching his/her full academic potential. I am passionate and committed. I believe in forming strong bonds with the students whom I teach. I am motivated by playing a dedicated part in their ongoing development.

Something sensational about me

In addition to teaching children and young adults for over a decade, I am also a qualified yoga instructor and have been practicing as a teacher in this field for over three years. I also enjoy travel and photography and have been fortunate enough to have travelled extensively throughout Africa, Asia and Europe.
